3 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp of sugar (optional for sweet taste)
3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter or margarine
1/4 cup (59ml) Cold water
1/2 cup (118ml) milk
1/2 cup (118ml) Cooking oil

Combine 3/4 of the flour, salt, baking powder, butter and water and mix well in a bowl.

Pour the milk into the bowl while continuing to mix, add the remaining flour and knead until it flour forms a smooth dough. Be careful not to over-knead.

Leave dough in a airtight container to sit for just about 1/2 an hour.

Heat oil in a large Dutch pot, break off some of the dough and roll into individual pieces in the shape of a small ball.

Place shaped dough into the heated oil and fry for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Drain on absorbent paper towel.

For best taste, serve when freshly made, avoiding reheating in a microwave.

To check if they are finished in the middle, use a fork to tap the dumplings, you should hear a hallow sound.
