Ingredients

For the Dumplings: 

For the Toppings:

Directions

  1. Make the dumplings: Cook the oatmeal as the label directs, then let cool. Combine the oatmeal, flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a bowl and make a well in the center. Add the egg and olive oil to the well and mix with a fork. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead into a smooth ball. Cover with a towel and let rest 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the beef, onion, 1 tablespoon salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Prepare the toppings: Whisk the yogurt, garlic, cup water, and salt to taste in a bowl. Heat the olive oil in a small skilletover medium heat. Add the pepper flakes and paprika and cook 1 minute. Set the yogurt sauce and spiced oil aside. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Divide the dough into 4 pieces. On a floured surface, roll each piece into a 20-by-4-inch rectangle, then cut into 2-inch squares. Place 1 teaspoon beef filling in the center of each square, fold over into a triangle and press the edges to seal. Boil the dumplings in batches, stirring occasionally, until they float, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to bowls. Top with the yogurt sauce and spiced oil. Photograph by Kate Mathis
