That Waitrose recipe is weird. Who fries dumplings!? It only got a two-star review.
Make mince to taste, put in casserole. Make dumplings. Put dumplings on top of mince. Put on CLOSE-FITTING lid. Cook. DO NOT PEEK during cooking time. Trust the dumplings and they will be wondrously light and fluffy; peek and they will be horrible lumpy things.
