    Great recipe! Was crunchy on the outside and nice and soft inside! Personally, I’d like a pinch more salt notwithstanding, I really enjoyed the outcome.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment Nikki I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe, I love fried dumplings too. To be honest when I cook for myself I generally share the ingredients by eye, so it was a bit tricky to list the amounts used so I could share the recipe with other people!

    Love the dumplings!! I mixed in cornmeal and some sugar in mine….any tips on storing the leftovers so they are still nice for morning breakfast??

      Hey Christina
      Thanks for taking the time to comment.

      I will have to try your recipe, I have tried boiled dumplings with cornmeal but not fried dumplings.

      If I have any fried dumplings left over I generally store them in an air tight container when cooled, they can also be wrapped in tin foil. Don’t cover them when they are warm as the condensation will make the crunchy coating turn soggy!

      Hope this helps

      Bless up Jules

      Hi
      Yes you can omit the butter / margarine without any problems. Just don’t overwork the dough too much!

      Happy eating!

    I love these dumplings, could I use less baking powder as it leaves a taste? Would they be unsuccessful. I use them with chicken soup, mother’ s penicillin

      Hey Patricia!

      Welcome to the site, I appreciate you stopping by to share your love for the Fried Dumpling Recipe! Yes you can use less baking powder, or simply use baking flour instead of counter flour. I find this gives great results and it takes the guess work out of how much baking powder to use, as it’s already added by the manufacturer.

      Have you tried adding boiled dumplings and some hard food (yam, irish potato, sweet potato) to your chicken soup recipe? Now that really is a great cure all!

      Hope this helps. Bless Up Jules
