"Nokedli" (Dumplings) (from Eszter.com)
Thanks to my Mom for this one!
2 cups flour
1 cup milk
1 tbs margarine/butter
pinch of salt
Special appliance: Dumpling-maker (a metal
plate with holes in it, ideally large enough to suspend over the pot)
In a bowl, stir together egg with butter/margarine, milk and salt. Add
flour, a little at a time, stirring well after each addition until the
mixture is the consistency of a smooth dough. If it looks too thick, add
a bit of water, but be careful with that.
Boil water in a very big pot. When the water is boiling, put the
dumpling-maker on top of the pot and pour the dough on top. Push back and
forth with a wooden spoon to get the dough to go through the holes. Repeat
until all of the dough has gone through. Then lower the heat and wait
until all of the dough rises to the top of the water. Drain water, the
"nokedli" is ready to serve. (If you won't serve it right away then it's a
good idea to put some water in a smaller pan and then put the dumplings in
another pan on top of that so the steam will keep it moist and then
hopefully it won't stick together completely.)
I'm glad you're trying out this recipe. Please let me know if you
