These are classic fried dumplings very famous in Jamaica, they are usually served with codfish as part of a big weekend breakfast
Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cook: 10 mins
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- ½ cup butter, cut into cubes and softened
- ½ cup cold water
- 1 cup vegetable oil for frying
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Rub in butter until the mixture is crumbly. Mix in water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to form a firm dough; knead briefly.
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat.
Break off pieces of dough and shape them into biscuit-like patties. Place just enough of the dumplings into the hot oil so they are not crowded; fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels before serving.
