Jamaican Fried Dumplings For J

Today we have to cook a recipe from a country name start with J. I have changes many recipes with this letter. First I planed to make Jordanian pilaf then I changed it to Japanese Then finely decided to make Jamaican.
                                                                   Jamaican cuisine is a mixture of flavors, spices, influences from local people. And also adopted cooking techniques and flavors from British, African, Indians and Chinese who lived in the country.Jamaican cuisine includes many dishes from different cultures and cuisines. They use a large variety of tropical fruits, meat and sea food. 
                                                              to day my recipe is Fried dumplings very popular dish. They are very popular street food and also made at homes. This fried dumplings are made in two ways one is made with flour, a little bit of salt and milk, second  verity is with flour, milk, corn meal and sugar. the second version is known as festival dumplings. this festival verity is served with spicy meats and gravy s. My today's recipe is first one which is served as a snack or breakfast with Callaloo, Ackee and salt fish.
