    I'm asking about dumplings that are part of a dish and not stand alone like Dim Sum. There are many, called by different names that are a major stand out in many dishes. Chicken and dumplings, kartoffelklosse, dumplings in stews, etc. What do you love to make that has dumplings?

    Jamaican curry with spinners. Not made this in ages.

    There is a southern dish called Chicken and Slicks. Slicks are just a type of dumpling. I consider potato gnocchi as dumplings.

    That sounds interesting.

    I like to make a traditional beef stew with suet parsley dumplings. Delicious!

    I'll have a look for the recipe. A friend taught me and it's written down somewhere.

    There is an article about dumplings here:

    Extract re oriental dumplings (dim sum and the like):

    Suet dumplings. I just love them in a beef stew on a cold winter evening. Although cold winter evenings are not common where I live.

    These are just flour and beef suet (3:1), water and a few herbs.

    Yes - the easiest thing to make. Do you use Atora suet?

    When I could get it I did. There was one Chinese shop in Kuala Lumpur who stocked it. It's difficult to find here.

    A friend of mine from the south wouldn't agree that they are easy to make. Gently folding the ingredients rather than mixing them is the key, I think. His always ended up like depth charges.
