Ingredients

2 cups white flour

1.5 tsp salt

1 tbsp baking powder

2 tbsp olive oil

1 cup warm water

Method

  1. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder into a small bowl.
  2. Add the water as you stir, then the oil. Keep mixing until the mixture has combined into a fine paste. Feel free to add any type of filling you like, or simply cook them without one.
  3. Use a spoon to scoop up each bit of the mixture, then drop it into a chicken or beef broth.
  4. Steam for 3-5 minutes or until the dumplings begin to rise to the top of the water.
