This is a recipe shared in by my dear friend Athi... kids just loved it.

For the filling:
Eggs - 4
Green onions - 1 bunch( optional)
Grated cheese - 3 or 4 tbsp
Salt as needed
Pepper powder - few spinkles
Oil - 1 tbsp

For the cover/dough:
All purpose flour/maida - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Salt as needed
Yeast - 1 tsp

Vinegar - 3 tbsp
Green chillies - 1 chopped very fine
Soya sauce - 1 tbsp

Mix in all the sauce ingredients to serve as a dip for your dumplings.

In a mixing bowl add flour and salt.sugar and yeast and mix well... add warm water to mix in to make a thick dough....cover and set it aside for 3 - 4 hours ..the dough will rise in double the size.

Wash and clean green onions and cut the roots... just chop the bottom part and green part seperately... This is little similar to my
  • Green Onions Poriyal
  • recipe, but we are not going to use that quantity..
    No need to add much... this is just a photo to show how it looks.

    Heat oil in a frying pan and add the onions part from the green onions and fry for 2 - 3 minutes... next add the chopped green onions and fry till it is cooked for 4 - 5 minutes... Break eggs one by one and add the pan... also add salt required and pepper powder... just fry the way you do for the scrambled egg recipe... when done switch off flame and add grated cheese. Cool it.
    Take a small part of the dough and roll with a rolling pin to spread it out little... take one or two tbsp of the egg mixture and place in the middle... with your fingers pull the dough from all sides to cover up and press well to seal it up... repeat until you are done with the mixture.
    You can place them in the idli plates or steamer and steam in for 10 - 12 minutes... or add them in boiling water until they are cooked.
    Serve with sauce and enjoy your dumplings.
    Can use any stuffing as a variation.
