Why National Dumpling Day?
Dumplings are made up of little dough balls. The dough is usually wrapped around a filling, however this is not always the case. The broad variety of dumplings available is influenced by both flavor and cooking methods. Flour, potatoes, or bread can be used to make the dough. Meat, fish, veggies, and sweets are all common fillings. Dumplings can also be prepared in a variety of ways. Boiling, steaming, simmering, and even frying is some of the processes. While dumplings are frequently consumed on their own, they also make a tasty addition to soups and stews.

Dumplings Recipe :
2 tablespoons Butter
½ teaspoon Thyme dried
½ Onion chopped
1 tablespoon Parsley dried
1 cup Flour
¼ cup Shortening
3 oz Stilton
1 ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
¼ teaspoon Salt
- In a skillet, melt the butter, add the thyme and the chopped onion, and simmer until the onion is tender but not brown. Then take it off the stove and let it aside to cool.
- Combine the parsley, flour, baking powder, salt, and shortening in a mixing basin, and cut the shortening into the flour mixture. Then add the onion mixture and give it a little toss to spread it evenly. After that, gradually add water, a spoonful or two at a time.
- Make dumplings out of the mixture; you should be able to get around 12 out of it. Place a slice of cheese in the center of each, then reform the dough to cover the cheese.
- Cook on their own in simmer water or stock or add to a soup at the end of the cooking process. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes on low heat.
