  • 2 eggs, beaten with fork
  • Few tablespoons water
  • Medium sauce pot with water to boil and cook dumplings, (like you would to cook pasta).

Mix flour and salt in a medium mixing bowl, add eggs and blend together, now add water slowly until you get a sticky batter, not runny.

Bring the pot of water to a boil, (like your cooking pasta).

Place some of the batter on a saucer or small plate, take a teaspoon and dip in boiling water, now take teaspoon and flick/slide small amounts of batter off the edge of plate into boiling water.

Refill plate with more batter and repeat if needed.

You might have to turn heat down a little so pot doesn’t boil over.

The dumplings will start to float to top when cooked, in about 5 minutes they will be done.
