For 8 dumplings:

100g Self-Raising Flour
½ teaspoon Baking Powder
50g Vegetable Suet, such as Atora
a small bunch of fresh Parsley, flat-leafed if possible – finely-chopped
the leaves from a few sprigs of fresh Thyme
Salt and freshly-ground Black Pepper


- Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl, stir in the suet, parsley and thyme - and season generously.

- Stir in 4-5 tablespoons of cold water, enough to make a soft, sticky dough.

- With floured hands, roll into 8 evenly sized balls, about the size as walnuts.

- Cook in the casserole for the last 25-30 minutes - they should then be light and puffy.
