Mix the flour and salt in a bowl and create a hollow in the middle. Very finely chop the herbs, combine with the milk & water and eggs, pour little by little into the trough, stirring, then mix with a ladle and beat until the dough turns glossy and starts to bubble. Cover and leave to combine at room temperature for approx. 30 mins. Using a small pastry horn, press the dough in batches through a colander rinsed in cold water, straight into the boiling salted water. As soon as the Knöpfli rise to the surface, remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm. Dot with knobs of butter before serving.

Heat the venison stew according to the packet instructions and plate up with the herb Knöpfli.
