Bublyky (bagels) - a traditional dish of Ukrainian cuisine, which can be cooked from choux pastry or yeast dough. This product can be salty or sweet, lean or with poppy seeds, etc.
Previously, the wealth of the family could be assessed by what kind of bublyky are present on the table. Poorer families could only afford lean bagels, while wealthier people served bublyky with poppy seeds and powdered sugar.
Bublyky were also used as decorations - they were hung along the oven. And this dish was an element of the wedding ceremony: the bride and groom wore a necklace of small bublyky around their necks. These decorations were to give wealth and prosperity to the new family.
