Total time: 16 mins.
Servings: 4 people

• Two cups all-purpose flour
• Three-quarters cup milk
• Oil for frying, about one and a half cups
• Two teaspoons baking powder
• One teaspoon salt

• In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir these dry ingredients together before pouring in the milk. Mix until everything is just combined, then bring the dough together into a ball and give it a light knead until smooth.
• Break the dough into about ten pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Arrange them on a tray or plate while you heat the oil.
• Fill a 10-inch skillet with the oil and warm it over medium heat until it reaches about 350 degrees Fahrenheit, ready for frying.
• Gently place the dumplings in the hot oil. Fry until they’re golden brown on one side, then flip them over to brown the other side, letting them cook for about two to three minutes on each side.
• Once the dumplings are evenly browned and puffed, remove them from the oil and let them drain on paper towels or a wire rack to remove any excess oil.
• Serve these golden dumplings warm, either as a snack on their own or as a side to your favorite dishes, and enjoy the taste of simple, homemade comfort.
