Semolina Dumplings Stuffed with Plums


This dessert is speciality of Balkan countries. Traditional dough is made with mashed potato and flour - similar to the gnocchi dough. Instead of plums, apricots or even nectarines and peaches can be used as filling.

Ingredients:
Dough-
2 cups water
1 cup semolina
2 tbs oil
pinch of salt
2 tbs sugar
3/4 cup (+) flour
2 small eggs
1 tsp baking powder
Filling-
sugar plums, pitted (or others; if too big half them). I used red plums (halves)
For rolling/ dusting-
bread/biscuit crumbs, poppy seeds, icing sugar
Method:
Bring water, oil and sugar to boil. Add semolina and stir vigorously to make a thick porridge. Let it cool. Beat eggs, then add to the porridge along with enough flour(with baking powder) to make dough. Divide dough into equal pieces with hands dusted in flour (large ice-cream baller can help). Put a plum in the middle of dough and roll between your hands. Bring a saucepan of salted water to boil. Drop 4-6 dumplings into it and cook for 6-8 min, depending on size of balls. Take cooked-ones out on absorbing paper, then roll them into crumb/poppy seed mixture. Dust well with icing sugar and enjoy!


Šljive u knedlama od griza

Knedle sam mijesila po

Sanelinom receptu
s malim izmjenama (1/2 kolicine sam mijesila, dodala sam secer u tijesto i malo vise griza i brasna)

Potrebno:
Tijesto-
1/2 l vode
1 solja griza
2 K ulja malo soli
2 K secera
3/4 solje brasna (+)
2 manja jajeta
1 k praska za pecivo
Fil-
sljive, ociscene od kospica (ako su vece prepolovite ih)
Za uvaljati-
mrvice hljeba ili keksa, mak i secer u prahu
Nacin:
Skuhajte gustu kasu od vode, ulja, secera i griza; prohladite. Dodajte ostale sastojke; umijesite u tijesto. Podijelite na jednake loptice u koje cete stavljati sljive i sa pobrasnjenim rukama oblikovati u loptice. Kuhajte ih u blago zasoljenoj vodi 6-8 minuta, u ovisnosti o velicini knedli.Izvadite knedle i ostavite ih na upijajuci papir da se ocijede. Pomijesajte mrvice sa mako, uvaljajte knedle, pa ih dobro pospite secerom u prahu. Uzivajte dok su tople!

  2. Nisam pravila te knedle od griza, ali ih obožavam, tako da bi mi se sigurno jako dopale. Ove godine sam ih preskočila, nekako zaboravila, pa sam ne mogu smrznute da nađem u prodaji. Moraću malo više da se potrudim. Te sa šljivama su mi najlepše.
