Gnocchi- Eggless version

For the final round of the BM#25, I chose cooking with alphabets. Here is my dish with “G”

I have always been amazed to see people make gnocchi flawlessly. I really never thought it is so easy to make. Trust me you can make it even if you dont have the

Potato Ricer



I made a chunky roasted tomato and rosemary sauce to go with it. It was perfect for supper.

  • Let the potatoes sit out for sometime. We need them to lose as much moisture as possible.
  • Using a fork, mash it well in a bowl.
  • Add salt and mixed herbs.
  • Take it out on a wooden board and add 1 tbsp flour at a time and massage it in the potatoes well.
  • Add flour until you get a pliable dough out of it.
  • Once done, make 3/4 inch thick ropes out of it and cut in bite size pieces.


  • Roll these pieces one by one over an inverted fork, against the twines, to get the ridges.


  • Boil some water in a pan and lower the dumplings.


  • Once they are done, they shall float on the water.
  • Take them out using a slotted spoon.


  • Once the tomatoes are done, take them out and remove the peel of the tomatoes.


  • Cut them roughly and keep aside.
  • In a pan, melt butter or heat the oil. Add the gnocci and stir for a few sec.
  • Add the tomatoes and the puree.

  1. Looks wow! The first time I saw potato Gnocchi being made was on a prog called Cooking Isn’t Rocket Science ges ago on Travel and Living. Haven’t attempted it yet though. Must have enjoyed the fruits of your labour!

  2. I made gnocchi once many years ago but that was way before I cook as often as I do now or as skilled as I am now and they came out horrible. I have been planning on trying to make them again. It has been in my drafts for a long time. Yours look so delicious – you are making me want to make that draft now!

  3. You make it look really easy :). Roll the fork gently over it – I would probably mash it up into pieces at that point ;), but definitely going to give it a try!

  4. I love the sound of all the herbs in potatoes and tomatoes :). I have tried making gnocchi before and it was a wash out. This one looks so do-able! Nice, really nice!

Thank you for dropping by :)
