Using a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients until evenly mixed.
Add the ghee until it’s fully absorbed into the dry mixture using your hands.
Knead in the egg with your hands until the mixture is thoroughly combined and forms into a soft, pliable dough. If the dough is crumbly and not holding its shape, add a tablespoon of hot water at a time to the mixture and knead until it becomes a soft, pliable dough. If replacing the egg with water, add small amounts of hot water to the dry mix until it forms into a dough.
When the dough is holding the shape of a smooth ball, place it back into the bowl, cover, and let it rest until it’s time to add it to the soup.
This resting time will ensure the dough is fully hydrated and help with the final texture.
Using a heavy bottom pot or soup pot, place on medium heat and add the Ghee.
Once the ghee melts, add the herbs and vegetables and sauté for 3 minutes.
Add the chicken, toss with the herbs and vegetables, and sauté for 5-10 minutes.
Add enough water to fully submerge the chicken, turn the heat down to low heat, cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.
While the pot is simmering, bring out the dumpling dough, cut it into three equal portions, return the two pieces to the bowl, and cover while you work on the one piece.
Roll the dough into long logs, cut it into bite-sized pieces and then drop them into the pot or shape them as you like before dropping them into the pot.
Repeat the previous step with the two other portions of dough until all the dough is used.
After all the dumplings have been added to the pot, add some more liquid until the soup is to your preferred consistency and cook for another 5 minutes on medium heat.
Remove from the heat, add salt and black pepper to taste, and serve hot bowls.
