      Delicious rolls. I was unsure what it meant to form "curls" so I plaited the strips and then made them into rings. They worked out fine, looked very pretty (despite the fact that all I had were black sesame seeds_ and tasted great.

      SO WONDERFUL! I made this for my Greek father, I am sure he will love it. I had to add just a titch more water, I used canola oil, and it did take a lot of sesame seeds! I used my mixer with the dough hook to avoid all the work. It took about 40 min. to rise. I used parchment paper and it was great. The only thing was they were almost over-baked at 25 minutes in my oven, so be careful on the time! They were perfectly crunchy on the outside and perfectly soft on the inside! It's like a sesame bagel. A++++
