Potato Gnocchi


Gnocchi is a variety of pasta consisting of various thick, small, and soft dough dumplings, which are made from semolina, egg, cheese, potato, all-purpose flour, and any such ingredients. The dough for gnocchi is most often rolled out before it is cut into small pieces about the size of a wine cork or a ball. The little dumplings are then pressed with a fork or hands to make ridges that can hold sauce into it.

Similarly, they are simply cut into little lumps. Gnocchi is usually eaten as a replacement for pasta in the first course, but they can also be served as a side dish to some courses.

Gnocchi is commonly cooked on their own in salted boiling water and then dressed in various sauces depending on the type of gnocchi and recipe we are making. 

Some gnocchi can be made from pieces of cooked polenta, which are spread out to dry, and then layered with cheese and butter and finished in the oven. Here we will talk about potato gnocchi!

Ingredients For Potato Gnocchi

  • Potatoes – 4 medium
  • Salt – 1 teaspoon
  • Pepper – 1 teaspoon
  • Egg – 1
  • All-purpose flour – 200 grams
  • Butter – 2 tablespoons
  • Sage Leaf – a few


  1. At first, add the potatoes to a large pot of cool water, which has some salt. Then bring the water to a boil and cook for 20-25 minutes. Now drain the potatoes and set aside until cool enough to handle but it should be still warm.
  2. Meanwhile use a peeler or your fingers and remove the skin from the potatoes. In a medium bowl, mash the potatoes until all lumps are gone. Then add the salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.

  3. Now put 1 cup of all-purpose flour on a clean surface and turn out the potato dough onto it. Working quickly and carefully, knead the dough, it should be solid at the end, don’t forget. Then slice the dough into 4 parts. Roll out 1 part into a long rope, about 1 inch wide, cutting in half and working with 1 half at a time if the rope is becoming too long. Slice the rope into small squares and set aside on a lightly floured surface.
  4. After that bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the gnocchi in small – small batches, stirring gently once or twice to ensure they are not sticking. Boil until they float to the surface; after another 15-30 seconds in the water, remove.
