I think ‘to dumple’ should be the verb for eating dumplings.

Is a person who makes dumplings a dumpler? “What do you do for a living?” “I dumple.”

Ducking - Duck.
Gosling - Goose.
-ling seems to indicate a youth/juvenile, or just smaller, version of something. This leads me to believe that the existence of dumplings implies the creation of a monstrous culinary creation that will fulfill prophecies… The Dumple....
