How to Make Potato Gnocchi

How to Make Potato Gnocchi

It's easy for your gnocchi crumble if you're making it for the first time. I created this foolproof recipe so that anyone can make them without fail.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Potato
1, medium
Bread flour (or cake flour)
30 g
Salt
1/3 teaspoon
The flour should be about 1/3 the weight of the potato

Steps

1. Boil the potato (or wrap in plastic and microwave for 5 minutes at 500 W). Remove the skin, then finely mash with a fork. Add the flour and salt.
2. Use a spatula to fold the flour and potato together. If it's crumbly, use your hands to form it into a ball. If necessary, add water. Dust your work surface with flour, knead well, then make a tight ball of dough.
3. Stretch the dough into a 3-cm diameter log, then cut into 1 cm pieces (evenly). Roll them into balls, then, using the back of a fork, press a pattern into them. (This is the fun part of making gnocchi.)
4. After preparing the sauce, boil water in a pot, add 1 teaspoon oil, then boil the gnocchi for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Tip: Remove the gnocchi as soon as it floats to the top.
5. Taste a piece. It's delicious! The photo shows carrot gnocchi. For the sauce, use whatever you like. See Recipe ID: 2140040.
