RECIPE INGREDIENTS
Ingredients for dumplings
4 cups cake flour
1 cup sweet corn
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
10g instant yeast
2 cups of lukewarm water
For the chicken:
2 tablespoons oil
1 onion peeled and chopped
1 glove garlic chopped
curry/black pepper
4 chicken pieces, thighs or breasts
1 chopped tomato
3 carrots cut into chunks
1 chicken stock cube
salt, to taste
2 cups boiling water
DIRECTIONS
Sift flour into a bowl. Add salt, sugar, yeast, then add in the sweet corn and 1 cup of water at a time to mix in to make dough. The dough must be mid-stiff and well kneaded for at least 3 mins. Leave it to rise covered with a damp clean dish towel for approximately 5 mins while you prepare the chicken.


In a large pot heat oil. Fry onion and garlic until golden brown for at least 10 seconds. Add in chicken pieces, fry them until the skins are golden brown and turn them frequently. When browned add in tomato and carrots, dissolve stock in 2 cups of hot water and pour over the chicken. Then make tennis ball size dumplings by rolling and moulding them with your hands. Put 1 dumpling at a time and make sure they do not stick to each other. Cover and cook for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve hot!
