Jamaican Fried Dumpling is a easy and delicious 4-ingredient bread style dumpling recipe that’s crispy on the outside with a soft, buttery and fluffy inside!
Prep Time: 10 Min
2 cups All Purpose Flour
3 tsp Baking Powder
3 tbsp Butter or margarine
1/2 cup Cold Water
1/4 tsp Salt or to taste
Cook Time: 15 Min
Combine Ingredients – in a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Add butter to the dry ingredients and use your hands to mix in, evenly.
Add Water – gradually add water, use your hands to knead and form the dough, add more water if needed.
Roll Dough into Dumpling – pinch or cut off large golf ball size pieces. In the palm of your hand using a circular motion, form each piece into a ball, flatten slightly, and fold the edges of the dough into the center.
Fry Dumpling – in a medium sized heavy bottom pot, heat oil over medium low heat. Add each dumpling to the heated oil and fry for about 8 to 10 minutes flipping at the halfway point.
Drain and Set Aside – once golden brown and cooked through remove from pot, place on a wire rack to drain any excess oil and allow to cool.
