Very quick, very easy and very cheap, but don't forget to have the stew ready first.

 

INGREDIENTS (To make about 8 Dumplings)

 

3 Teaspoons of Baking Powder

1 Cup of  Flour

1 Medium Egg

6 Tablespoons of Cold Water (Measure the Water carefully)

1 Tablespoon Oil

1 Teaspoon of Salt

 

Method

(1)  Beat the egg well

(2)  Add the 6 tablespoons of cold water

(3)  Add the oil and salt and whisk together

(4)  Mix the baking-powder and flour together

(5)  Blend the two mixes quickly into a smooth batter

(6)  Drop into A boiling stew and cover

(7)  Continue boiling for 15 to 20 minutes

 

Try to resist the urge to peek too often - the  dumplings l rise to the top and produce a light tender crust but a cold draught such as that caused by lifting the lid may cause them to sink.

They can also be served as a dessert by  cooking them in boiling water and serving them with syrup or jam  drizzled over them.

When  travelling you can make up the dry  ingredients into batches and carry them in self sealing bags ready to add the  liquid and the egg when you  are ready to use them.
