Method

Make the dough: Put the warm water in a measuring jug or bowl. Add sugar, stir to dissolve and add the yeast. Stir to mix. Set aside for 10-15 minutes or until the yeast mixture is frothy.

Working with a stand mixer, fitted with dough hook attachment. Place the flour and sea salt into the mixing bowl. Stir and mix well. Pour in the yeast mixture and stir to mix.

Set aside in a warm place for about 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in bulk.

Place the dough on a floured board. Divide it into 4 portions. Gently roll each piece into logs. Cut each log into 6 pieces. Gather the dough into round balls. Cover with cling film or kitchen towel for 20 minutes.

Press the center of each ball and filled with some diced cheese. Then wrap the dough around the cheese and continue with the rest of the dough and cheese. Cover the dough and let rest for another 45 minutes to an hour.

While the dough are resting. Melt the butter and stir in the garlic, parsley, and sea salt. Remove and set aside.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
