  Dissolve the sugar in the water and milk, then add the yeast,
  stirring to dissolve, and let sit for 10 minutes. Combine the flour,
  butter (which has been cut into small pieces), and the yeast mixture,
  kneading until the dough forms a smooth ball.  Or, in a food
  processor with the machine running, add the butter to the flour, then
  add the yeast mixture. Process until the dough forms a ball, adding
  flour or milk as necessary. Let rest for a few minutes, then process
  1 minute more. Place in a lightly oiled bowl, turing once to oil the
  top, cover and let rise until double in bulk.
  Pour boiling water over the seeds, let stand for 5 minutes, pour off
  the water and repeat, draining well. Cover with the milk in a
  saucepan and bring to a boil, then strain. Grind with the steel blade
  in a blender or processor until the seeds release the milk and turn
  white, then add the sugar, honey, and butter.  Cook in a heavy
  skillet for 1 minute over high heat.  Cool. When cool, add the egg
  whites and zests, blending well.
  On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a long rectangle
  about 1-inch thick.  Spread the filling evenly over the dough
  stopping 1-inch from one long edge and roll up, making sure that the
  filling is sealed inside.  Place on a non-stick baking sheet, seam
  side down. Bake in a preheated 350 Degree F. oven for 35 to 40
  minutes. Brush with the egg laze and cool on a wire rack.
