You will need to cook the dumplings in batches – so drop half of them in the pan and cook for 10 minutes, turning so they cook evenly and puff up. Either serve the dumplings in a bowl separately from the stew, or gently stir them into the stew before serving (John Torode’s favourite way!).

Why are my dumplings chewy?
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.
