Ingredients for Dumplings:
One Cup of Flour
Two Tablespoons of Vegetable oil.
Half Cup of Warm Water.
Salt & Pepper.
Ingredients for the Sauce:
Four cups of Plain Yogurt
Half cup of Rice
One cup of cold water
Four cups of hot water
Two cloves of diced Garlic
How to Prepare the Dumplings:
Prepare the dough by placing the flour, vegetable oil, salt and warm water in a pot and mix all together.
Kneed the mixture to form a ball of dough.
Using a saucepan, fry the onion until it is golden yellow then add the ground beef and cook until brown.
Add a dash of salt & pepper to the ground beef and stir until well cooked.
Take a small piece of the dough.
Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough (put some flour on the rolling pin and surface so the dough does not stick) and flatten into a round shape.
Put one teaspoon of the meat in the dough and roll it into a half-circle shape and press well on the edges to close, then bring the far ends together and press well till they get stuck together (as shown in the picture).
Deep fry the meat dumplings until golden brown.
How to Prepare the Yogurt Dip:
Mix the yogurt with the rice, the egg, and the cold water until all are blended well.
Put the mixture in a large pot and cook on medium heat while stirring continuously until it starts to boil.
When it starts to boil, add the four cups of hot water and lower the flame and let it cook until the rice is ready for about 25-30 minutes.
For flavoring the yogurt sauce, use a sauce pan to heat two tablespoons of olive oil.
Add one tablespoon of the ground mint and the diced garlic to the vegetable oil and stir until the garlic is light brown.
When the yogurt sauce and the rice are all cooked, turn off the flame and flavor it with garlic, mint and vegetable oil.
Let it sit for one minute then serve.
Yum! This sounds so tasty. I’m going to have to try this! Thanks.
Thanks! You will love it.
I’m sure I will! I get so bored with American cuisine after a while. (One of the hazards to being a military brat who travelled and then lived in Chicago) This part of Florida is full of franchise chain restaurants…it gets old.
I hear you. I love trying something new all the time. My thing is breakfast, I always like to try new breakfasts from everywhere I go.
Oh, yes! Breakfast is my favorite meal. My husband just discovered this breakfast casserole he made while my sister and her husband was in town. It tasted great. Now we want more company so we can make it again! (It’s way too much for 2 people)
As a vegetarian, I enjoy your recipes and mentally swap out the meat for veggie versions. Always, food for thought;)
Looks yummy – can’t wait to try it!
