Do you really think that you need to fully avoid carbohydrates if you want to get leaner? Not at all. The main thing is the source and size of the portion. You do not need to avoid it once you monitor it.

There is no better way than turning an old school homemade dishes into an upgraded healthy version.

Kopytka Dumplings are simple flour and potato dumplings cooked in salted water, served with a sauce. I have changed the original recipe slightly, using gluten-free flour instead of wheat. It makes the dish much healthier. Your stomach will be completely fine after eating even the whole plate of this. No bloating, no constipation, no stomach pain, no reflux. Simple to make and so tasty.

You can make your own variation of sauce or use mine, Indian inspired tomato and onion sauce.  Try it, as I am sure that you will not regret it.

The dish fits perfectly the ”healthy” standards. It suits the family lunch or dinner. If you are sport active it will support your body both before and after the workout.

Get ready: (4 servings)

  • 4 medium cooked and peeled potatoes
  • 1/2 glass gluten free flour (or potato starch)
  • 1 tbs Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tbs Ground Black Pepper

Mash the potatoes in the bowl and mix well with the rest of the ingredients. Use your hand to mix it all well until the pastry is ready. Form a ball in your hands and roll it into stripes on the clean table. Press it slightly all the way and cut into squares with a knife. Leave on the side, store in the fridge or freeze for later

Sauce :

  • 4 medium organic tomatoes
  • 2 medium organic white onions
  • 2 tbs cumin seeds
  • 1 inch chopped ginger
  • Himalayan Salt
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Coconut Oil

Peel the tomatoes of the skin, simply pouring very hot water over, in the bowl. Cover with a lid, steaming for a couple of minutes. Remove hot water, pour over very cold. The skin will peel off nearly itself. Cut tomatoes on squares.

Prepare the pan with coconut oil. Throw the cumin seeds and chopped ginger. Fry for a couple of seconds and immediately throw in chopped onions frying until a little brown, throw in the chopped tomatoes and cook on high heat. Wait until the tomato water dilutes. It will take a few minutes, keep on stirring the mixture at all the time. It will thicken and be ready for serving.

To cook the dumplings, prepare the pot with hot boiling water, salt it and cook the dumplings for 2-4 minutes, when they are fresh.

Serve with sauce and fresh parsley.

Enjoy
