Madombi are slightly sweet boiled dumplings served with Botswanan sauces, soups and stews. 


Prep time: 20 min 

Cook time: 30 min 

Total time: 50 min


Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

¼ teaspoon baking soda

Water for mixing

Water for boiling

2 tablespoons of oil

1 teaspoon of salt


Directions

In a large pot on high heat fill the pot halfway with water and add two tablespoons of oil and one teaspoon of salt.

For the dough

Add all the dry ingredients and mix well. Slowly add water into the mixture until dough is formed. Dough should not be sticky. Make even size balls of dough and slightly flatten. One trick is to make an indentation in the middle of the flattened dough ball with your finger in order for the dumpling to cook faster. Carefully drop the dough into the boiling water cook 25-30 minutes serve with any Botswanan soup or stew meal.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
