How much water should I pour
The optimal ratio is 500 g of dumplings per 1.5 liters of water. But if you want to get a richer broth, take less water.
The main thing is to remember: the liquid must completely cover the dumplings so that they can float freely and not stick together
What to add to the water
First of all, salt. You will need about one teaspoon per 1 liter of water.
The taste and aroma of the dumplings will be improved by 1-2 dried bay leaves and a few peas of black pepper. You can also add a small chopped or whole onion and your favorite spices to the water.
The amount of any seasonings can be varied according to taste.
If you are afraid that the dumplings will stick together, pour 1-2 tablespoons of vegetable oil into the water.
