This recipe is not your usual chicken soup. This broth has been elevated to a full blown meal by giving you the taste and texture of a dumpling in soup without the actual effort of making them. The tasty dumplings and vegetables with the flavourful broth make this a rich and decadent soup.
Chicken dumpling soup is a partially thick broth with the flavour of chicken and chopped vegetables, with cooked chicken dumplings submerged into it. It is flavoured with chicken stock or broth and has finely chopped vegetables cooked in it. Optionally some milk can also be added to the pot for bringing that richness and colour.
This recipe has the feel of the dumpling soup without the full effort. We show you a great hack to make the exact dish by making a false dumpling by flattening it. The recipe takes just under 30 minutes to cook and gives too good results from the same.
Start by preparing the dough with the flour, salt, egg and oil. Knead it to a soft and supple ball.
Roll the dough out into a thick strand, slice them into 1 inch pieces and soak them in a bowl of water for 10-15 minutes.
In a stainless steel saucepan, add butter and saute chopped onion and garlic. Add cubed carrots and water, add cubed potatoes.
Season it with salt, pepper and chicken broth powder. Remove the scum that develops on the top and add in the milk
Take the soaked dumplings, flatten each dumpling using your fingers and add it to the soup
Serve the soup hot in a bowl and garnish with some dried parsley.
keep in mind that the broth powder isn't simply the taste and essence of chicken but also some more seasonings. So while you add this, you need to be careful with the amount of salt you add to the soup.
