  4. Fry the dumplings.  Put some peanut oil into a skillet.  Heat up the peanut oil and deep-fry the dumplings until they're golden brown, turning them once.  Make sure the oil doesn't get too hot though.  Frying shouldn't take very longonly about three minutes per side.

  5. Let the fried dumplings dry.  Remove the Jamaican fried dumplings from the skillet with a slotted spoon and place them on paper towels to drain.
