Recipe's preparation

    basic dumpling dough
  1. In a small ceramic or glass bowl mix one sachet of yeast with 1/2 tsp of honey and 3 tblsp warm water. Cover and set aside for 3 minutes to activate yeast.

    Place salt, egg, flour and activated yeast in TM bowl. Add 1/2 of the water and mix for 8 seconds, speed 5. Add more water as necesary to form a rough dough. Set dial to closed lid position and kneed for 1 minute. You should now have a smooth, slightly sticky dough.

    Sprinkle the Thermomat with a small amount of continental flour and tip the dough on top. Kneed slightly and shape into a ball. Cover and place into a warm area to rise for about 20 minutes. The dough should be doubled in size when risen and is now ready to shape.

    Divide dough into two equal portions and spape into small baguette. Roll lightly in flour.

    Fill TM jug with 1 lt of water and bring to Varoma temperature. Once at temperature, set timer for 20 minutes, place one dumpling into each Varoma tray and set into position to steam.

    Once cooked, slice into rounds using a piece of white sewing thread. Slide thread under the dumpling, cross over and pull ends untill it slices through the dumpling.

    Hi Kate

    Once your dumplings have steemed, place on a cutting board, slide a lenght of cotton underneath and starting at the end cut the dumling into rounds by bringing the cotton up, crossing it over and pulling tight.

    Hope this helps.
