How to Prepare Dough for Dumplings with Milk and Egg

This recipe for dumpling dough uses milk, egg and a bit of oil. It suites good for fried dumplings, such as chebureki, for example (this recipe is coming up next saturday).

Another difference in this recipe is that milk is warmed up till boiling temperature when it is mixed with first batch of flour. This makes dough more elastic.

If you have a stand mixer with dough hook feel free to use it, otherwise you can also knead this dough by hands.

Ingredients:

  • About 4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 table spoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 tea spoon of salt

How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: as for any other dough, amount of flour you use will actually vary, flour is used for dough itself, as well as for dusting working area and dumplings themselves
  2. Pour milk to the cooking pot, add 1 tea spoon of salt and 2 table spoons of vegetable oil:

    Hi. Is it 1 or 1.5 cups of milk? On recipe for dumplings with mushrooms it says 1.5 but here it says 1. My sister tried making dough with 1 cup and it came out too hard/stiff so I think its supposed to be 1.5 cups.

    • It will depend greatly on how the flour behaving. Some flour needs more liquid some less, the rule of the thumb is to go by dough consistency – if you see it getting stiffer than you think it should be, stop adding flour. That is probably something I should add to the recipe instructions: as soon as consistency of the dough allows kneading – stop adding flour.

      In this way, amount of dough you get will depend on amount of liquid you use: the recipe for potato and mushroom dumplings needed a bigger portion of dough, that is why it is 1.5 cups of milk listed there, but amount of flour is very hard to predict.
