Dumplings are like lazy dumplings, only without filling. In different parts of the world they are called “gnocchi”, “dumplings”, “dumplings”; they are cooked with different eggs. We suggest you start with the classic recipe: flour և egg. Add dumplings to soups and chicken broths. it’s very winter, kids love it.
So, cook the broth. It is very convenient to use, for example, the bones that you take out of the chicken before sending it to bake. I always put the spine in the freezer with a small amount of meat and big bones. And Nadine L. Rijep, the chef և author of the book “It Tastes Better at Home”, generally advises to make broth from the bones left over from the baked chicken. But the choice is yours, you can take either a ready-made soup set or just chicken fillet.
We cook the broth according to the usual recipe. Fill the bones or meat with cold water, bring to a boil, remove the foam with a slotted spoon, if any, add carrots, onions, a piece of celery root, parsley or parsley. or a sack of lamb. After boiling the broth, reduce the heat to low, cook the meat, bones, vegetables for 20 minutes (for meat) or an hour and a half (if you want a rich bone broth). The broth is ready. Turn off the heat, remove the vegetables դր and set aside to cool.
Now let’s move on to the dumplings. According to the classic recipe, you only need high-quality wheat flour and chicken eggs. For a cup of flour, take one big egg, a pinch of salt, mix. Divide the dough into small pieces, put it aside on a table covered with flour. However, you can experiment. Make the pieces bigger or smaller (but always the same size so that they cook at the same time), add water, chopped herbs or even baking soda or baking soda to the flour to make the dumplings lush.
My kids prefer solid dumplings made of flour և eggs, which are medium in size. So, the dumplings are torn off, we go to cook.
Heat the broth on the fire և, when it just starts to boil, carefully lower the dumplings in the broth. Attention! Depending on the size of the dumpling, they may take longer to cook. Focus on medium-sized dumplings (2 cm in diameter) – cook for 5 minutes after boiling.
As soon as the dumplings are ready, remove the pan from the heat so that they do not boil too much. Before serving, add a large portion of finely chopped greens to each plate. Hard-boiled eggs are possible. Bon Appetit!
