Established 2008 Chic African Culture and The African Gourmet are learning tools to meet the demand for better education about the entire continent of Africa.

Ujeqe Steamed Zulu Dumpling Recipe


Ingredients

2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 sachet instant yeast
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

In a bowl add water, yeast and sugar, let stand 3 minutes. In a large bowl, sift dry ingredients together. Beat eggs into yeast mixture and stir gradually into the dry mixture. Add enough additional water if needed to make a stiff dough that doesn't stick to the sides of the bowl.


With damp hands, shape dough into a semi-flat circle, and place into a greased steamer. Steam until cooked through, about 45 minutes. Dumpling is done when a knife stuck into the center comes out clean. Serve with any dish!
