  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch

  • Add the flour, potato starch, egg and salt.
  • We process the ingredients into a potato dough.

  • Place the prepared dumplings immediately into slightly boiling water.
  • Cook the dumplings for 20-25 minutes.
  • After cooking, carefully remove the dumplings from the pot.

Form the dough into a ball to cover the filling and cook for 10-12 minutes in slightly boiling water.

Types of potatoes and how to use them in the kitchen

Baked : The Russet Burbank variety is a classic for baking, but any other potato can be baked.

Soup : Use waxy potatoes (small white or red potatoes) in soup because they keep their shape.

Fries : Most fries are made from russet potatoes.

Potatoes or pancakes : Russet Burbanks are also ideal because they hold together better than waxy varieties.

Mashed Potatoes : Starchy (reddish brown) make the fluffiest mashed potatoes, but any variety can be used.

Potato Salad : Waxy varieties are best because they don’t fall apart.
