Fab recipe.... I do spice it up with chilli and coriander.... my next experiment with it is to stuff the dumplings with spicy shrimp.... Yay!
I made a half batch (though used a whole egg) and it was very easy to put together. Instead of dropping by the teaspoon I wet my hands and rolled out small balls and dropped into the chicken and vegetable soup (got 14 and it was more than enough for 3 of us). I think this recipe would be really great with a spicy dish though for something like I did I would possibly add some fresh chopped herbs or dried herbs to the flour. Thank you Kittencall, will definately be trying this again with the herbs. Made for 123 Hit Wonders 2007.
Delish! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe :)
I've been using this dumpling recipe for 30 years - it is absolutely fool proof and fabulous - even the kids like it. Remember, never lift the lid once you drop the dumplings in.
I've tried several and this one is the best.
I didn't really like these too much, but maybe I am just not a dumpling kinda gal! I think that the soup you make it in needs to have A LOT of broth. Mine didn't have all that much and the dumplings took over the entire pot of soup! I probably wont make this again.
Growing up, my Mom alternated between these and traditional dumplings. These are the ones I make cause they're so easy and seemingly foolproof. Oh, yeah, and they're delicious!
I love these! they're so easy to make and i don't need veg suet, yay! (a thing i only ever used for dumplings, so it woud hang around until after it's sell-by). I use them in my favourite veggie sausage casserole, i don't need to put on any tatties either as they make up enough carbs (between 2). they do expand and go lovely and crisp on top (as long as you stick to the "no peeking" rule) they have a light doughy texture and i like to add paprika and mixed herbs to mine. Amazing, thanx Kittencal
We liked the soft texture of these dumplings. I used them in Big Thicket Chicken and Dumplings. I made the recipe one hour prior to adding to the steam. I did an an additional 1/4c more of Half & Half to have a semi-stiff batter. Thank you Kittencal.
These were very close to the texture I am looking for in a dumpling. The flavor was excellent, but they just kinda melted/disolved in your mouth instead of having a nice bread like texture that I'm looking for. Thanks Kitz.
