Nigel Slater Dumpling recipe
Nigel creates a lovely beef stew with suet dumplings before adding his own version to create a tasty new dumpling recipe.
To create Nigel's version he adds 70 grams of fine oatmeal to a mixing bowl along with 75 grams of plain flour, a teaspoon of baking powder and one of salt. Nigel uses 80 grams of butter instead of suet for his recipe which he greats chilled into the bowl.
Nigel rubs the mixture together before adding finely chopped parsley, rosemary and thyme. He pours in a little cold water and mixes until you can form sticky dough balls.
Add the dumplings to a stew and simmer until cooked, approximately 10 minutes.
