Here in winter this is the sort of dish that is very popular, without so many spices by most here. My variation of this dish is to make the Dumplings just one big Dumpling,with alachi seeds and Hare Dhaniya chopped fine added to the dough. press the dough out to the size of your pot,make sure there is enough liquid then carefully place the dough in the pan to cover all the ingredients. fit lid tightly and seal. Turn down the heat to avoid having dumpling in your hair.
Your recipe is excellent, for for those on their own or students as you can put anything you like in and in any amount. ENJOY. Peter
