Through the years I tried many recipes for dumplings. This recipe is one of the best:
Name: Mushroom stew with herb dumplings
Author: Tony Weston, Yvonne Bishop
Adjustments: I didn’t use shiitakes or cabbage in the stew and replaced the sherry for some ricewine. You could use cacao instead of carobpowder.
Also I cheated a little bit to have more airy dumplings. I used plain selfraising-flour instead of whole wheat.
