Now, let’s talk about your mother-in-law’s dumplings that were tough, heavy and chewy. One of the many mistakes she may have made was to over-mix the batter. If you do, you’re going to build the glutens in the flour, which will produce a really tough dumpling.
Why are my dumplings gooey?
If you add the dough before the liquid is hot enough, the dumplings will end up soggy and undercooked. If the dough is dropped right into the liquid, the simmering action may break up the dumplings. Also, the dough will soak up moisture from the liquid so the dumplings will become soft and soggy.
