Homemade boiled bagels

Homemade boiled bagels is a bun made of yeast dough, cooked in a special way. First, the products are boiled, and then baked in the oven. Due to this, they have a ruddy crust and a very tender crumb. Bagels are usually stuffed by cutting them into two parts. Both sweet and salty foods can act as fillers. Today we are preparing bagels stuffed with red fish, ricotta and onions.
