    1. Place flour in a medium bowl, making a well for the eggs. Introduce the eggs and mix with a fork; then knead to form a stiff dough. Pinch off 1cm pieces of dough with fingers and cook in a large pot of boiling water until dumplings float to the top, 5 to 10 minutes.

    Excellent. Followed recipe exactly as is, turned out perfect. Dough is rather sticky to pinch off into small pieces but they turned out like tiny dumplings. Very good.  -  29 Sep 2008


    I followed the recipe but added some mixed herbs and after cooking let them chill in the fridge then added them to a slow cooker beer marinaded stew for 30 mins. Beautiful!  -  29 Nov 2013


    Something else. I use 1 egg to 125g of flour and add water to the mixture making it still a thick consistancy then scrape it off of a slate board into boiling water.  -  29 Sep 2008
