My mother is Jamaican. I grew up on these. The only differnce is I use milk as opposed to water, to bind the flour. Thanks for posting, you saved me from having to bug my mother for the recipe.

Before, my dumplings tasted like rocks, and were very fresh! Now they taste fluffy and delicious! Can't wait to let my mom try "my" new recipe! ;)
