Dumplings are a term given to a broad spectrum of foods made of a dough with some flour mixture, salt, and water that may or may not have a filling. In Trinidad & Tobago, our dumplings are the unfilled versions made with wheat flour, salt, and water. We have two general shapes of dumplings that differ depending on the dish or the dumpling maker’s preference. Trini Dumplings traditionally found in soups and stews are either shaped by rolling the dough into snakes and cutting them into 1-inch pieces or by using your hands to create finger-length pieces with tapered ends that look like a stretched out Rugby Ball. The other style of Trini dumpling can be found in dishes like Curry Crab and Dumplings or Salt fish and Dumplings. These are made with the same dough but shaped into flat round disks of various sizes. We will give you the dough in this recipe, but the rest is up to you, so have fun and enjoy!
