The name “lazy dumplings” does not mean at all that only lazy people can cook them! They were dubbed such an unflattering epithet only because you will be spared from rolling dough, modeling and stuffing each dumpling with cottage cheese. You don’t even need a rolling pin to roll out the dough - this is how culinary masters have reduced this cottage cheese recipe! So - let's try to cook them. Take the required number of ingredients for 4 servings:
- 500 cottage cheese;
- 350 g of wheat flour;
- 1-2 chicken eggs;
- 150 g of granulated sugar;
- 2 pinches of salt.
Cottage cheese choose any fat content, but it is preferable to get fat - it will give the test fluffiness and extra viscosity. If you are cooking this dish also for children, then wipe the curd through a sieve or colander - then it will completely interfere with the dough and will not form lumps. Place the curd in a separate container and add an egg to it. Pour the sugar and salt, mixing everything until smooth. If it turns out dry - hammer in there another egg. By the way, with homemade chicken eggs, the dough gets a more yellow color, because in them there is more coloring pigment and they are much more useful store!
Then add flour to the curd mass and knead a light dough that will stick slightly to your hands. At the cut of such a test should be visible curd inters and small air grooves. There is no need to add flour more - it will make the dough knocked out and dense, and such a product does not boil well and drowns the delicate curd taste.
Next, divide the dough into small pieces and roll the sausages with them. Each sausage cut diagonally into equal segments - this will be our future lazy dumplings. As you can see - the rolling pin in this recipe is really not useful!
Boil water in the pan and as soon as it starts boiling down, lower the dumplings into it one by one, keeping a five-second interval between their immersion so that they do not stick together. Cook these delicious pieces of cottage cheese dough for about 3-5 minutes before they float to the surface.
Then turn off the heat and remove the dumplings with a skimmer on the plate. Melt the butter in advance and pour the prepared dumplings on top.
Serve this delicious Ukrainian dish along with berries, jam, sour cream and good mood! By the way, very often guests ask for a supplement, but you already know how to cook it quickly!
