Island Mystery: Boiled Dumplings

{Island Mystery is a series in which I give you clues about the mysterious island paradise that I am living on.}

The dumplings we make on my island usually have no filling and are served as a side dish. Our dumplings are practically just boiled dough. Flour is the main ingredient. And most times islanders combine it with cornmeal, grated green banana or cassava.  

These dumplings taste really delicious when served with sauce and an entree.
Ingredients
4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup cold water

Method
In a bowl, combine flour, cornmeal and salt. Sparingly add water to form dough and knead properly.
Form medium sized balls from pieces of dough and flatten balls between your palms. Place in hot water and boil for 15- 20 minutes. 

They taste really nice when served hot!

Enjoy if you try them ♥

Love,
Summer

  3. These dumplings sure do look good. I am wondering if you live in the south because you make many fantastic southern dishes? But then the palm trees tell me different, hmmmmm.
