In the bowl of a stand mixer, mix sugar, yeast, 4 cups flour and salt. Add the water.

Add the vegetable oil and start mixing using the dough hook. You can also do this by hand.

Knead the dough for about 8 minutes until it's no longer sticky.

Cover and let it rise for 1.5 hours until it doubles in size.

After 1.5 hours the dough will look like this.

Punch the dough down gently. 

When you punch it down, it'll look like this.

Divide the dough into 16 pieces and roll each one into a ball.

Roll out 2 pieces into 25 inch tubes each and lay them parallel to each other.

Roll the tubes in opposite directions to make a twist.

Meet the ends and pinch them together to make a ring.

Dip each ring in molasses and water mixture.

Dip the rings in sesame seeds and let them rise for 20 minutes.
