Think about this, brown-stew chicken, curried chicken, kidney, ackee and salt fish, tin mackerel, salted mackerel, sardines, callaloo, steamed cabbage… I can go on and on and on!
If you’re still wondering what “wonder food” I’m referring to, its none other than Jamaican fried dumplings, aka Johnny Cake! - a favorite to eat at breakfast in almost every Jamaican household.
These, soft, flaky, golden brown dough pastries, are usually round in shape, but I for one, love to roll and tie mine in a knot (not unusual here in Jamaica by the way).
I must advice you though, that though the Jamaican fried dumplings may look simple to make, it is not as simple as it seem.
There are techniques, and these techniques need to be perfected in order to make the best Johnny cakes. It took me years to master how to make a deliciously perfect batch of fried dumplings!
The first time I made Johnny cakes( please don’t laugh) I figure I could use them to break a bullet proof window! It was so tough my father asked if I had used cement instead of flour!
After many attempts, I practically gave up on trying to make them like Miss Phang (she owns a restaurant and makes some of the best fried dumplings in Montego Bay, Jamaica!)
It wasn’t until I was pregnant with my daughter and craved some fried dumplings when, like magic, I perfected the art of making Johnny cakes.
What I did was, use all the “secret techniques” I collected from different people and cook books over the years, added, subtracted and vuala the perfect batch!
I have now tailored a recipe (below) just for you!! Enjoy!
There you have it, simple and easy recipe for you! Enjoy
