Does it help me when I know I am calorie conscious?
If you are calorie conscious, you are in for some good luck. You can easily consume this recipe anytime without worrying about gaining weight. For eg., lunch time is an ideal time. That way you will have whole day after that for digesting the meal. And as a healthier choice, you should use vegetable oil for frying dumplings. I usually use olive oil & rapeseed oil for deep-frying my food.
