2 Large Carrots(Sliced)
4-5 Small Potatoe's(diced small)
small Pinch Salt
Gravy Granules(I used Bisto Original)
Add your carrots and potatoe's
Pour in enough water to boil your vegetables for 15 minutes until they soften.
Rub together with your fingers into a coarse crumb like texture.
Add 3 more Tbsp of self raising flour and 1/4 tsp of Bicarbonate of soda.
Stir together lightly but well.
Add cold water gradually, very lightly pull the mixture together with a spoon to form a fluffy dough.
Gently bring together with hands - you do not need to knead this mixture. Now leave to the side for a moment.
By now your vegetables should be quite soft so add your favourite gravy granules to thicken it a little, stir well.
Your dumplings will almost triple in size. Take a spoon and gentle roll them over - simmer again for another 5-7 minutes.
