|It's pronounced 'gom-bots'
You need to get Turo; or /wait a minute while I check the fridge/ Twarog from the Polish Deli. You cannot use british Cottage Cheese, it tastes awful. 250g will make enough to have 12-15 dumplings as a pudding, we normally do 500g for the 5 of us and it will be all we eat tonight.
200g-300g bread crumbs
1 large egg; go on two, if you like
Oil for frying
Sour cream to serve.
Place a LARGE pan of water on to boil, it needs to be big enough that all the dumplings can be covered and float to the surface.
In a bowl, mix by hand the turo and eggs with equal amounts of bread crumbs and sugar to make a dough that is just moist but will still hold together. [Probably around 200g of each but it depends on ho wlarge the eggs are and how moist the turo is]
Form the mixture into balls about the size of squash ball and add them all to the BOILING water.
Meanwhile fry some more breadcrumbs in oil until they are golden brown. Keep them moving all the time or else they will burn. When they are ready add some suger; you can't make this too sweet.
Once the gombocs are all floating in the pan, remove them with a slotted spoon; or two large forks if you must. Coat in thee fried bread crumbs.
Serve with the remaining bread crumbs, more sugar and the cream.
