3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

Oil for frying

Preparation for dumpling dough:
Sieve the flour in to a bowl, stir in the salt and baking powder.

Cut the butter in to small lumps and add to the mixture.

Work the mixture in to a breadcrumb-like texture.

Add the milk a little bit at a time and work in to the mixture (if it is added too quickly the mixture may not bind properly). Knead the mixture until it is smooth.

Divide the mixture in to small balls about 5cm in diameter then flatten the balls so they are about 2cm thick. The dumplings are now ready to be either boiled or fried.

Fry dumplings:
Heat the oil over a low heat.
Fry until golden brown (this should take about five minutes).
Place on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil and serve.

Boil dumplings:
Place the dumplings in boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain and serve.
