Kreplach and the Universal Dumpling

Kreplach (from Yiddish: קרעפּלעך‎ and Hebrew: קרפלך‎‎) are small dumplings filled with ground meat, mashed potatoes or another filling, usually boiled and served in chicken soup, though they may also be served fried.[1] They are similar to Polish uszka, Russian pelmeni, Italian ravioli or tortellini, and Chinese wontons. The dough is traditionally made of flour, water and eggs, kneaded and rolled out thin. Some modern-day cooks use frozen dough sheets or wonton wrappers.[2] Ready-made Kreplach are also sold in the kosher freezer section of supermarkets.
