About Potato fruity Knodel :

It is likely that the word “Knodel” originated from the German verbs knoten (to knot) referring to the methods used to make the savoury or sweet dumplings according to the Wikipedia.

It’s a traditional Eastern European recipe which is made with any firm fruit like Plum, apricot, cherry, strawberry or grape in the centre and eaten as a dessert.

Feedback from my Son’s friends :

I am so happy to share with you all that when I made these and asked my Son to taste, at that point, he was in hurry to meet his friends, and was bit reluctant to taste.

But after tasting he asked me to  pack few pieces. And after a while I got a thank you call from all of his friends, telling me that they loved it. It was something so delicious, they have never tasted before.

    It’s a new dish for me but very interesting one!! I like the fruity surprise inside. It’s true we really feel elated when we try something new and get a thumbs up especially from kids and to top it from their friends too!!

      Thank you Swati. Yeah this was a trial and everyone who tasted loved the fruity surprise.
      Absolutely true it’s such an awesome feeling when children love what you make.

    You know this is a very common dessert in Romania (where I live)! They make it with plums when plums are in season… I like how you used grapes which are available almost throughout the year 🙂 I definitely have to try this one.. have been told about it by so many friends here also! Your step by steps photos are very helpful 🙂

    1. Lata Lala

      That’s good to know that you are familiar with this dessert. I would suggest you to give it a go.
      Thanks Ashima.

    Hi, I liked this recipe as it is something very new to me and would love to try it someday if you could help me by suggesting something to replace the egg. Thanks alot.

    1. Lata Lala

      Hey Aditi I am glad you liked the recipe. It’s really worth trying. As this is a traditional recipe and made only with eggs I have never tried making it without eggs.
      You may use flax meal instead of eggs.

      The basic ratio is one tablespoon of flax seeds and three tablespoons of water to replace one egg. You’ll need to grind the flax seeds into a fine powder. and then you simply whisk in the water until it becomes gelatinous.

      Thank you for writing in.
