  • Fried Dumplings

    Fried Dumplings



  • 3 cups of flour
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • Oil for frying



  • Shift the flour into a bowl, stir in the salt and baking powder
  • Cut the butter into small lumps and add to the mixture
  • Work the mixture into a breadcrumb- like texture
  • Add the milk a little bit at a time and mix into the mixture (if it is added to quickly the mixture will not bind properly)
  • Knead the dough until it is smooth
  • Divide the mixture into small balls about 5cm in diameter then flatten the balls to about 2cm thick.
  • The dumplings are now ready to be fried
  • Heat the oil over a low heat
  • Fry until golden brown (this should take about five minutes)
  • Place on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil
  • They are now ready to be served
