I received this recipe from a native Indian lady. We've exchanged many tips and recipes over the years, and this dessert has become a favorite.


  • 3 pints fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 5 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • Half-and-half or whipped cream, optional


  1. In a 6-qt. kettle, combine the blackberries, sugar, water and butter; bring to a boil.
  2. For dumplings, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. In a large bowl, beat egg and milk; stir in dry ingredients until a soft dough forms. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto boiling berry mixture. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until dumplings test done (do not lift the cover while simmering).
  3. Serve warm with cream if desired.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> Raspberries may be substituted for the blackberries.
