  • Dumplings should lie in a dish in one layer and it is advisable not to allow the “ears” to contact each other so that they do not stick together and manage to bake well.
  • Then the cooking temperature should be reduced to medium or slightly less than average. Pour 50-80 grams of water into the pan and, closing the container with a lid, simmer the dumplings until the moisture is ready and evaporates.
  • As soon as the water evaporates, add a little oil to the bowl and fry the dumplings to the crunch bilaterally.

How to fry dumplings: the subtleties of cooking

1. It is better to fry dumplings in vegetable refined oil. But you can take any fat, taking into account taste preferences and national traditions.

2. Dumplings fried in a thick-walled pan.

3. They are laid out in well-heated, but not hot fat. If the dumplings are put on a slightly heated pan, then they can stick to the bottom, and the filling will fall out.

4. Frozen dumplings before frying do not defrost. But dumplings, just taken out of the freezer, are covered with hoarfrost. If you immediately lower them into hot oil, they will begin to “shoot”. To prevent this from happening, they need to be held a little at room temperature, laid out in one layer on a cutting board. When the frost disappears, they can be fried.

5. Freshly cooked dumplings intended for frying should be put on a sieve in one layer so that they dry out. Such dumplings can not be digested, otherwise they will fall apart during frying.

6. The taste of fried dumplings depends on the spices and seasonings added during cooking. Dry seasonings need to be put at the end of frying, otherwise they will burn and spoil the taste of the dish.

7. Dumplings can be deep-fried. In this case, spices are added to ready-made dumplings laid out on plates so as not to “contaminate” the oil with them.

8. Dumplings are fried over moderate heat until golden brown, occasionally stirring with a spatula.

9. If the dumplings are large, then frying alone may not be enough. To bring them to readiness, you need to pour a little hot water into the pan, cover and let it boil for 3-5 minutes. Instead of water, you can take broth, sour cream, a mixture of ketchup and soy sauce.

Is there anyone from Izhevsk, maybe you were at such an event, or are you going to? Tell me - interesting 🙂

If guests suddenly come to you, frying dumplings is an ideal option. It will take very little time. Outside, crisp, and inside juicy meat. Very tasty 🙂

Do not forget that dumplings are very high-calorie, and fried - especially. Therefore, do not abuse it. This is a good option for some rare occasions. But not for every day. The calorie content of 100 grams of the dish, depending on the stuffing, is 200-300 kcal.

  • To make fried dumplings less high-calorie. Before eating, lay the finished product first on a paper towel. So the excess fat drains.
  • If you are deep-fried, let it thaw a little. Put the dumplings on the table and leave for 10-15 minutes. When the dough softens a little, squeeze them lightly with your hands so that they flatten a little. Then the product will fry very well.
  • I also advise you to try frying the dumplings in a deep fryer. They turn out to look like chebureks or whites in miniature. Very original and tasty.
  • When buying dumplings in a store, pay attention to their category. It is indicated on the packaging. It is best to choose category "A", in such a product contains 80% meat. Category "B" is also not bad - from 60% to 80% of meat.

There are also categories “B”, “G”, “D”. But I do not recommend buying them. The quality of such a product is in doubt, as well as its taste. There is more dough than meat. Different additives may be contained: soy, semolina, flavorings. Best of all, of course, are self-molded dumplings. Nothing beats them. Do you agree?

The usual way to fry dumplings

Pour vegetable oil on a well-heated pan or put a piece of butter, evenly distribute along the bottom and put the dumplings in one layer. Be careful, as hot fat is “sprayed” and can get into your hands. After a few minutes, when a brown crust forms on one side, turn each dumpling over and fry on the other side until golden brown. Arrange on plates and decorate to your taste with herbs, sprinkle with spices or pour the sauce that you use for meat dishes.

Small dumplings or those that were molded using a special form for ravioli are ideal: they do not have a thick "tail" of dough that is poorly fried. If the dumplings are large, first fry them on each side for 5 minutes, cover with a lid, and then bring to readiness by removing it.

Fried dumplings in sour cream

Put dumplings into the heated oil and lightly fry, for 2-3 minutes on each side. Add 3-4 tablespoons of sour cream, cover with a lid and let them sweat for about 5 minutes, then remove the lid, wait until the sour cream has evaporated, and bring to readiness, also frying until golden on both sides. Absorbed sour cream will give dumplings an unusually mild taste. Season with fresh herbs and spices.

Dumplings fried with added water

Gently place the dumplings on the bottom of the pan with heated oil and fry them until golden brown for 3 minutes from each side. Pour in boiling water so that it covers the dumplings halfway, cover the pan tightly with a lid and add heat. For flavor, you can add bay leaf, tomato paste, a few peas of pepper. After all the water has evaporated, continue to fry the dumplings until golden brown.

Dumplings with fried onions in a pan

Cut two large onions in half rings and fry in butter until softened. You can do this under the lid so that the onion does not overcook much. Then put the dumplings on it, slightly salt and mix. Fry over low heat under a lid for 5-7 minutes until golden brown, turn over, add oil if necessary, and bring to readiness. Then immediately put on plates and sprinkle with fresh dill.

Fried boiled dumplings

If you want the dough in dumplings to be soft after frying, pre-boil them in water with the addition of salt, parsley and peppercorns. After 5-7 minutes (it all depends on the size of the dumplings), discard in a colander and let the water drain. In heated oil, put the dumplings on the bottom of a regular pan and fry them on both sides so that the dough turns golden.

If you have cooked dumplings left over from dinner or lunch, instead of microwave, heat them in a pan and get an incredibly tasty dish that can be poured with sauce or sprinkled with fresh chopped herbs.

Deep-Fried Dumplings

For this recipe, dumplings are best made at home, rather than using convenience stores.

If you add a little vodka to the dough when making dumplings, it will not absorb a lot of fat.

Pour oil into a deep frying pan to half the sides, heat it well and dip the dumplings into it in small portions so that the oil covers them all. Fry over low heat until golden brown (5-7 minutes to prepare both the dough and minced meat), take a slotted spoon and lay them on a paper towel. When the excess oil is absorbed into it, put the dumplings on plates and serve them with sauce. It can be prepared as follows: in carefully mixed mayonnaise and sour cream (two tablespoons each), add chopped dill and pickled finely grated gherkins.

Fried dumplings are served with sour cream (mustard can be added to it to reduce calories), ketchup, mayonnaise or meat sauce. They are decorated with herbs, sprinkled with spices or grated cheese. You can also serve them with vegetable sauce cooked in red dry wine from onions and bell peppers.

You can fry dumplings on the stove, in the oven, in the slow cooker and even in the microwave. This dish is easy to prepare both at home and at work, in the hostel, on the road. Initially, this option was invented by the Japanese, who call it “gyoza,” the only difference is the filling, in which they add cabbage in addition to meat.

Despite the simplicity and unpretentiousness of the dish, you can cook fried dumplings in different ways, even in an ordinary frying pan.

How to fry frozen dumplings in a pan?

A frozen pack of dumplings always lies in the refrigerator of a bachelor and thrifty housewives with many children. It happens that guests are on the doorstep, or a picnic has suddenly taken shape, but there is nothing to take with you. It doesn’t matter - frozen dumplings will quickly come to the rescue.

Take out when ready, adding new ones. Do not think that the process is complicated - the total cooking time does not exceed 15 minutes per kilogram of dumplings.

Serving the finished dish is especially good with hot sweet mint tea.

It is interesting! Some housewives advise to cook the dumplings slightly thaw before cooking, for 10 minutes, and then slightly “flatten” each hand. It is believed that in this way they are fried more evenly and become tastier. But remember: they must thaw on a board sprinkled with flour: otherwise, the meat ears can stick and break before being cooked.
