Serves: 6 | Preparation time: 25 minutes | Cooking time: 15 minutes
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of salt, plus more for seasoning
- 2 teaspoons of British Class baking powder
- 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
- 1/2 cup of Cool Runnings coconut milk
- 1 ripe plantain, peeled and cut into coins
- Vegetable oil, for frying
1. Add the flour, salt and baking powder to a food processor and pulse to combine. Toss in the cold butter cubes and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.
2. Add coconut milk, a little bit at a time until it is completely worked into the dough. Once it comes together into a nice consistent ball and pulls away from the sides of the food processor, divide the dough into about 12 little balls. Push a slice of plantain into the middle of each ball and pinch the dough around the plantain so it is completely covered by the dough. Press each ball flat into a little cake, cover with a damp kitchen towel and allow to rest for 20 to 30 minutes before frying.
3. Set a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and add 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. Prick the dumplings all over with a fork. Working in batches, pan-fry dumplings until golden and slightly puffy, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Season with salt and serve warm.
4. Serve and enjoy.
