This is such a beautiful pasta dish that u will simply love just a bite its so soft and amazing to taste that u ll love it ...I have made gnocchi from scratch here...they are easily available in super markets if u in short of time ..but I think u all would agree to me when I say that home made tastes simply best...so try this and leave in Ur feedback :)

Ingredients

For Gnocchi

3 med sized Potato (boiled and finely grated)

2 tbsp Maida / Plain Flour

1 tbsp Butter

  • Boil potatoes and finely grate the potatoes when its cools down. Add butter, maida, salt,  chili flakes , coriander and mix well and knead  well for 2-3 Min's.
  • Lightly dust the the working surface with maida.
  • Take small balls from dough and flatten it in the center with the help of the thumb to get a slight depression.
  • Boil water and add salt to it add prepared gnocchi carefully, Let it float on the top of the water then drain and keep it aside.(Be careful while draining it, I  feel handy to drain it using spoon in small bathes rater then in a stainer.
