Dumplings are a broad classification of dishes made from pieces of dough (made from different sources of starch) wrapped around a filling or from the dough without filling. The dough can be based on bread, flour, or potatoes and can be stuffed with meat, fish, cheese, vegetables, fruits, or baked goods. Dumplings can be prepared in a variety of ways, including baking, boiling, frying, stewing, or steaming, and are used in many cuisines around the world.
