Dumplings are quite different in various areas and cultures. I am of Volga German heritage so what we call dumplings are a bit different.
Spaetzle is very common and is simply a flour, egg, salt and pepper dough passed through a sieve into boiling water kind of a fat short noodle.
Soup dumplings are the same dough spooned into the hot soup.
Filled dumplings are maultaschen (pockets) or seckel (sacks) these again are a simple egg noodle dough made a little thicker and rolled out. they can be filled with many things but most often with case (milk curd) or fruit with the most common fruit being schwartzbera. Schwartzbera are the berries of black nightshade and while that may sound alarming they are not poisonous but make sure you have the right ones delicious.
The maultaschen are dropped in boiling water and like the spaetzle when they float are fished out. Then they are often sauteed in butter to slightly brown then plated, sweet or sour cream is then added to the remaining butter and heated mixed and drizzled over the maultaschen.
Great stuff.

I was in the top clas at high school so I studied German and French for 2 years so I still remember some stuff.

They also call these pot stickers, you fry the base until you get a bit of bark, then you put 1/2 cup water in pan and cover and cook for 4 minutes. My daughter served with Korean BBQ sauce , a very hot chilly sauce and another Korean sauce. These were awesome ans we will be doing this again. The roast beef sammiches were awesome as well, but kids were full on their dumplings. I loved using my mincer to make the fillings.

The pic is pre cook, fry the base for a minute or two, then add small amount of water and cover and cook for 4 minutes, simple as. Tasted real nice. My son buys these off one of his neighbours for $12 a dozen, we worked it out they cost around $1.50 to make for a dozen.

Well I will tell you how good these are, my wife and d.i.l are fussy eaters, both don't like the texture of pasta much, BUT they both ate around 10 of these, they both loved the chicken dumplings , filling was minced chicken, ginger, garlic, chilly,spring onion,fish sauce oyster sauce,sugar. These were a huge hit. Kids really loved the hands on making their own. My filling was the same except pork n prawn used.

Yeah the Volga Germans left Germany in the mid 1700s for Russia cloistered there for about 100 years then began migrating to America (both north and south) so they have a distinct dialect especially with foods as families created their own naming for foods that were otherwise common. For instance in my family maultaschen were never seckel. Grebble that I love has more recipes and spellings than anything yet it is simply fried sweet bread dough.

I will look up this as well, thanks, my friend makes pickled red cabbage which I love, I believe he said it is German of origin??
Btw I love fried bread, or even naan bread.
