I made this last night. Is there a typo??? The dumpling fell apart as soon as they hit the water. I followed the recipe exactly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain the spinach, and squeeze out the liquid.
  2. Add in 1/2 tsp salt, nutmeg (if using), egg and the cottage cheese.
  3. Add in enough flour to give it a firm texture (approx 6 tbsp).
  4. Form into balls, and put on a plate.
  5. Chill for 30 minutes or more.
  6. In a large pot bring 8 cups water with remaining salt; bring to a boil.
  7. Add in the dumpling balls; cook for 8-10 minutes, or until they rise to top of the water.
