Some time ago I posted a beef soup recipe on this blog.
I used dumplings for that soup, which I make at home quite often.
I do not know if everyone knows this recipe so I decided to share it with you.
These dumplings can be added to different kinds of soups. They are also a great addition to any sort of meaty dishes, especially stews.
The basic recipe contains only eggs and flour. However, a bigger variety can be achieved by adding herbs or paprika to the mixture.
Ingredients for egg and flour dumplings.
- 2 eggs
- 10 tbs of flour
- a pinch of salt
How to prepare egg and flour dumplings.
Sift the flour to a bowl. Add beaten eggs and mix thoroughly. The dough should not be sticky and the consistency should be quite hard. If needed, add more flour. Shape the dough into a ball. Put it in the fridge for about 30 minutes. After taking it out from the fridge, immediately grate it on a grater with large mesh. Once ready, sprinkle with flour to avoid sticking.
Cook in salted boiling water for 2 minutes.
Good to know when making dumplings.
The dumplings can be put directly into the simmering soup by using a table spoon. If you choose this method of cooking dumplings, make sure to add a few tablespoons of cold water to the dough. It should have a smooth consistency, like sour cream.
