dumplings recipe: ingredients
1 cup of sour milk or keffir
1/2 tea spoon of baking soda
1/2 tea spoon of salt
Making: Ukrainian dumplings
Mix sour milk with egg and add salt and soda. Mix in the flour.
Add enough flour to mix a dough that does not stick to your hands, when you knead it.
Leave it to sit in a warm spot for half an hour.
Then you knead it again. You may have to add just a bit more of flour. You roll the dough between your palms to form a long ‘sausage’ stick out of it. Then you cut out small pieces of it. Set the water to boil, add salt throw in your Ukrainian dumplings, once it starts boiling.
Once you get them out, you can serve them hot with butter or sour cream, or you can make a sauce or a dressing for the dumplings.
I fried some chicken liver with onions to serve along with these.
