Ocvrtki (fried cooked-dough dumplings)

These little fried balls made from cooked-dough are really good with different heavy meat dishes, roasts etc. While making the dough, the flour is actually cooked in boiling water, and hence the name cooked-dough. They are easy to make, and tastes good as you pop one in mouth just like that.

(Serves 2)

250ml water
30g margarine
160g flour
2 eggs


1.      Boil the water. Add salt and margarine.
2.      When it starts boiling again, reduce heat and add the flour.
3.      On low heat, mix the flour with a blender to get a smooth elastic mass.
4.      Put the mixture away so that it cools a bit.
5.      When the dough cools a bit, add the eggs, one at a time and mix blend again on low heat to form smooth soft elastic dough.
6.      Shape it into small balls (like gnocchi or little dumplings) and make dents with a fork.
7.      Deep-fry them in oil heated at 180°C for around 16mins.

Use a bit of semolina if the dough turns out to be too sticky and soft.
The dumplings can be cooked in boiling water for about 15mins instead of deep-frying.
