I visited a friend and we ended up making dumplings for lunch. Her recipe was so easy to follow. I really enjoyed the juicy dumplings she made for me, but its not somethings i see myself making often because its not all that healthy.
I decided to try out her recipe and it turned out to be great too. I made some with just plain flour and others i added spinach puree to make them green.
4 cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup lukewarm water
DIY plastic dumplings maker mold
In a bowl, mix the salt and flour together
gradually add a small amount of water and mix properly
Transfer dough onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes util the dough is smooth and elastic, if dough is sticky add small amount of flour at a time.
Let the dough rest for 30 minutes
200 g minced beef
1 small onions

1 tablespoon of green seasoning
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Divide dough into 2 ,sprinkle flour on a wooden surface and roll half dough into a circle.
place the rolled dough on top of the dumpling maker mold
Add small amount of filling with your hands and don’t allow it to be messy
Roll the last part of the dough into a circle and place on top again to cover the fillings

Turn the mold over and shake to get the dumplings out or use your finger to get them out
