We love eating boiled dumplings with Caribbean dishes, especially curry chickpeas using our curry seasoning.
This is a simple recipe but it may require some practice if you’ve never kneaded dough before. If you like this, be sure to check our fried dumplings recipe too!

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups White spelt flour

  • 1 Tsp + 1 Tbsp     Pink sea salt + more to salt pot

  • 5 3/4 Cups Spring water

Directions

  • In a large stockpot, add 4 cups of spring water. When the water starts to boil, add 1 tbsp sea salt or more. In the meantime in a bowl combine 3 cups flour and 1 tsp salt (sea salt). Mix to combine.
  • Slowly add water and knead until a dough is formed, about 5 minutes. If the dough is too sticky add more flour, a little at a time. If the dumpling is too dry, add more water a little at a time and knead again.
  • Take a fist sized pieces of the dough and roll in to a ball shape between your hands. Using the base of your palm press the ball in to your other palm to make a disc.
  • Carefully drop the flour dumplings in to the pot of boiling water and cook for 15 – 20 minutes. Cooked dumplings will float to the top of the water.
  • Carefully remove the boiled dumplings when cooked and enjoy a dumpling with the rest of your meal.

    This recipe makes 10 boiled dumplings.
