The dough can be based on bread, flour or potatoes, and may be filled with meat, fish, cheese, vegetables, fruits or sweets. Dumplings may be prepared using a variety of methods, including baking, boiling, frying, simmering or steaming and are found in many world cuisines.
1 In a food processor, combine the liver, onion, salt, 1 teaspoon sage, coriander, basil and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; cover and process until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder, egg whites and yolk; process until well mixed. Batter should be thick. (Add a little water if too thick or a little flour if too thin.) Set batter aside.
