  1. In a bowl, lightly mix the ingredients into a soft dough
  2. Only add water if the mixture is too dry as there will probably be enough moisture in the potatoes already.
  3. With lightly floured hands, roll into 6 balls
  4. Place the dumplings in a large pan of boiling water, ideally they should not touch. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
  5. Do not boil or you will end up with a pan full of suet-glop.
  6. The dumplings will sink at first, and rise to the surface once cooked - just make one final check for 'doneness'.


Place in a baking tray filled with 500 ml or so of hot chicken stock or vegetable stock (not quite covering the dumplings)and bake in an over preheated to 190° C (375° F - gas 5) for 30 minutes. Then finish under the grill for 5 minutes.

Makes a nice change

4.7/5 Slightly heavier than flour dumplings, but rather good. Jerry, aka Chef (talk)
