INFO & TIPS
Use a deep pot so that there is place for steam & dumplings to rise. Make sure the gravy is wettish because it must steam as well as the dumplings soak up the gravy.
I make it in baked beans curry or mutton/chicken curry. I usually add lightly fried diced polony into the baked beans when cooking.
You may make a vagaar of curry leaves, mustard & jeeru seeds with a little oil, heat and pour over dumplings. But my family prefers it without.
