Jamaican Fried Dumplings (Recipe Recap)

On April 27, I posted a wonderful Jamaican Dinner that I ate on that day. Recently, I spent some time making Jamaican fried dumplings and it is traditionally made to go with this meal. They have a natural sweetness, very crispy on the outside, and extremely soft on the inside. This recipe is extremely easy to put together. You could make this with any meal like a Caribbean Stew Chicken, Stew Fish with Rice, Pelau, or Soups. After making these delicious dumplings I prefer eating them by itself with a little bit of melted butter. If you want to try this recipe I have the ingredients below and easy directions to follow.

As you can tell I was feeling “Irie” today…lol. My dinner today was incredibly delicious and an island staple in Jamaica. Here’s what I had on the menu Jerk Chicken, Rice with Kidney Beans, Coleslaw, and Jamaican fried dumplings. You guys I have to let you know this dinner was very tasty. I do plan on making this recipe again. Next time, I’m making this dinner I’ll add plantains for the real Caribbean vibe.
