Now I have been making this dish for years, but I could never get the dumplings perfect, until now. These were perfect. You mix the ingredients for the dumplings together until you get a thick pancake batter kind of consistency. Not too thick that it's a dough, but not too liquid where you can't pick it up with a spoon. Next time I make it, I'll measure the water for you.
The rest of the dish is easy to make, the flavours work well together.
I recently watched a video with someone making it using pork instead, I'm going to try that one day soon, just for a change.
This is something my husband particularly loves as this is the kind of food his mum makes, but I am happy to say my whole family loves it to.
