Someone in my circle ask for a recipe for her mother dumping and peas. I remember a long time ago my grandmother make them but she added chicken.I think my friend in my circle mother had to use chicken to get that broth to boil the dumpling and added a lot of green peas and serve just a little pieces of chicken in that dish of Dumpling And Peas.
