These German treats are ideal with a litre of bier! Can be made in advance and frozen, will also reheat in microwave.
Cook all filling ingredients in hot frying pan like a stir-fry then simmer for 15 mins. Add water as needed.
Put aside to cool. (This is for mild mix; more spice can be added!)
Mix all dough ingredients in mixer with dough blade/hook.
Rest in oiled bowl for 30-40 mins.
Knock back and divide into about 20 balls (30-40g each).
Roll each ball to 15cm round on floured surface.
Fill each round with 2 TBS meat/veg mix and crimp like a simple dumpling/ball, using water to seal.
Place each ball on oven trays, seam down on baking paper and allow to rise (15-20 mins).
Glaze with butter/egg/milk and cook in 180C oven for 20-25 mins, watching for brownness.
Serve with alcohol.
