The dough for white dumplings is made of mashed boiled potatoes (moderately cooled, but still warm), potato flour and wheat flour. The ratio of the two kinds of flour is about 3:1. In some recipes, a whole egg may be added to the dough (this helps shaping if the mashed potatoes cooled too much and the shaping becomes problematic).
The dough for black dumplings is made of grated raw potatoes (the moisture removed by twisting in a linen cloth), roughly the same amount of mashed boiled potatoes, and the flour. In some recipes, a grated or chopped onion is added to the dough.
After hand rolling from the dough, the raw dumplings are flattened, and then the depression is made with a thumb.
The dumplings are cooked by inserting into boiling salty water in a large pot until they float to the top. If a larger number of dumplings is prepared, then the cooking must be done in batches (so that the dumpling do not glue together).

Famous quotes containing the word preparation:
“Its sad but true that if you focus your attention on housework and meal preparation and diapers, raising children does start to look like drudgery pretty quickly. On the other hand, if you see yourself as nothing less than your childs nurturer, role model, teacher, spiritual guide, and mentor, your days take on a very different cast.”
—Joyce Maynard (20th century)
“With memory set smarting like a reopened wound, a mans past is not simply a dead history, an outworn preparation of the present: it is not a repented error shaken loose from the life: it is a still quivering part of himself, bringing shudders and bitter flavours and the tinglings of a merited shame.”
—George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)
“Living each day as a preparation for the next is an exciting way to live. Looking forward to something is much more fun than looking back at somethingand much more constructive. If we can prepare ourselves so that we never have to think, Oh, if I had only known, if I had only been ready, our lives can really be the great adventure we so passionately want them to be.”
—Hortense Odlum (1892?)
