Traditional plum balls from potato dough – like from grandma

Plum balls of potato dough smeared with butter, sprinkled with poppy seeds and sugar. One of the best traditional dishes. Dessert or main course? I remember in my house, dumplings were always cooked as a sweet main dish. When I make them, I always think of my grandmother. She used a simple recipe to make the dough and I’m happy to share it with you.

Traditional plum balls from potato dough

What we will need:

  • 800 g potatoes
  • 300 g semi-coarse flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 20 pcs smaller plums
  • melted butter to taste, breadcrumbs, poppy seeds, nuts, granco, icing sugar

How we will proceed:

1. Boil the potatoes in their skins. Once cooled, peel and mash or finely grate them.

2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil.

3. On a work surface, mix the potatoes, flour, eggs and salt. Make a non-sticky dough. Roll it out in sections to about 3 mm and cut out rounds (using a glass or cup) about 6 cm in diameter.

4. Place a sliced and drained plum on each round. Close them and roll them into a ball between the palms of your hands.

5. Cook the balls in salted water until they all float to the surface. Then boil for a few more minutes to ensure the dough is not raw.

6. Serve sprinkled with sugar and topped with toasted breadcrumbs or ground poppy seeds, nuts… and topped with melted butter.

Good taste!
