Jamaican Fried Dumplings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil for frying
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Rub in the butter until it is in pieces no larger than peas. Mix in water 1 tablespoon at a time just until the mixture is wet enough to form into a ball. The dough should be a firm consistency. Knead briefly.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat until hot. Break off pieces of the dough and shape into a patty – kind of like a flat biscuit. Place just enough of the dumplings in the pan so they are not crowded. Fry on each side until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels before serving.
