Dumplings for a winter stew Recipe

Prepare a basic beef, lamb or chicken stew, and top off with dumplings in the last 15 minutes, for a filling and warming meal.


Prep Time

10 minutes

Cooking Time

15 minutes


Recipe Ingredients

240 g  SPAR self-raising flour  (500 ml)
 4 ml  salt
 10 ml  dried mixed herbs
SPAR Braai Spice
250 ml SPAR milk
120 ml SPAR sunflower oil

Recipe Method

  1. Measure the flour, salt and herbs into a mixing bowl.
  2. Grind on some braai spice, using your discretion as to the amount.
  3. Mix the milk and oil together and pour onto the flour, bringing together to a soft dough.
  4. Spoon tablespoons of the mixture, gently and close to each other, on top of the rapidly simmering cooked stew.  Cook for 15 minutes, with he pot lid on all the time, without lifting to check!

Hints & Tips

Add in 125 ml grated SPAR cheddar cheese and 10 ml dry mustard powder to the dry ingredients for a variation in flavour.
 A pork stew would be great with this dumpling recipe flavoured with grated peeled apple and a dash of ground cloves, instead of the mixed herbs and braai spice.
