Sour cherry dumplings: Directions

Step 1

Make the dough for the dumplings. Mix flour with eggs, salt, sugar, kefir or thin plain yoghurt and baking soda. The dough has to be soft, elastic and not sticky. Form a dough ball, move gently to an oiled bowl, and cover with a towel. Leave it to rest for 15-20 minutes.

In the meantime, make the filling. Pit the cherries (if you are cooking the dumplings out of season, defrost the cherries first). Add 1 tbsp. sugar and semolina.

Cook in salted water until the dumplings float to the top. Remove them from boiling water and sprinkle them with sugar to make sure that they don’t stick. Drizzle with melted unsalted butter. Serve with sour cream or cherry sauce (kysil).
