My question is for potato and carrot dumplings as follows, what sort of binder would you recommend to make it more stable for frying or boiling? I've tried eggs myself, would you recommend flour? if so what kind of flour?
Add 1 TBSP of water to 1 TBSP of (AP) flour and mix to form a paste. Brush the edges with a thin layer of the mixture, which was what a chef on a TV cooking show recommended.
You want to squeeze out as much of the water from the carrots and oven dry the potatoes.To make them firmer for frying you could add some panko/homemade breadcrumbs. For simmering add a small amount of flour to the mix.
