These dumplings are typically served as a side dish instead of bread in many Caribbean countries. They are also used to drop into soups or stews.
- Sift the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
- Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture is crumbly.
- Add enough cold water to make a fairly stiff dough.
- Turn out the flour on a work surface and knead until smooth.
- Shape into balls about 1 and 1/2 inches in diameter, then flatten.
- Drop into boiling salted water to cover and cook for about 10 minutes.
- Note: dumplings may be added directly to soups or stews instead of being cooked separately.
