Dumplings filled with Plum Jam


The “dumplings” type dishes are loved in Hungary as well as the plum jam, pairing the two creates a real Hungarian specialty.
Our elders used to spend hours with shaping this delicious food, but now you can get it from the freezer and it takes only a few minutes to prepare.
