Domplines (Puerto Rican Dumplings) Recipe

Almost every culture has dumplings as a staple. Usually, the dumplings are stuffed with some savory ingredient or other. In our culture we have domplines (pronounced "dom-plee-ness), which are our version of dumplings, except, they are not stuffed. It's more like deep fried dough, which is a common staple in the Caribbean. Other places have it such as in Indian cuisine where they deep fry the dough and call it poori.In our family, domplines have been with us forever. I remember my grandmother making them for breakfast with eggs or at lunch or dinner with codfish. They are deceptively easy to make, and quite tasty. Below is the basic recipe for domplines. If you want to liven up the recipe even more, you can add one or two minced cloves of garlic to the dough. This will give it an extra tang (if desired).
