Why won’t my dumplings cook?
It could also be that your doughballs cooled your broth enough that the outer surface of the doughball couldn’t get “set” fast enough and the flour began to mix with the broth. If that was the issue, I’d think hotter broth, a larger volume of hot broth, or smaller/fewer dumplings at once would help.
Do you cook dumplings covered or uncovered?
