Gnocchi Chicken Tikka- Gnocchi Party

Talk about virtual interaction! Penny from Jeroxie anounced a virtual Gnocchi Party. I was eager to join in, the flavour was supposed to be Umami. I had no clue what I was in for! I had never made Gnocchi in my life nor heard of Umami flavour. Many times I wanted to chicken out (pun intended), but Divina and Penny were very encouraging and provided me links to make it easire for me. Having finally joined them I must say it was fun! A big thank you to both of you, else I dont know when I would have tried Gnocchi or explored Umami. I have stuck to the traditional Potato Gnocchi since it was my first time, will explore in future. I would also like to explore healthier versions of Gnocchi. But what am I doing here. I am off to the party.... Join me there when you finish... At the party you will find..

Potato Gnocchi

Ingredients 2 potatoes 1egg yolk white flour as required nutmeg pepper Preparation-

  • Boil the potatoes and..
  • I had no potato ricer as the recipe requires. I had this...

  • Areate the riced potatoes.

  • Mix with flour, nutmeg and pepper powder.

  • Break the yolk into it and mix.

  • Knead the dough till it does not stick to your fingers adding flour all as required.

  • Let it stand for 10 minutes
  • Then cut into finger long strips and then finger sized squares.
  • Roll it over a fork and mould them.

  • Your gnocchi is done!
  • To cook drop in boiling water till they float.

Now for the Umami flavour! Well I decided to go Indian. So we have Gnocchi Chicken Tikka! For the Chicken Tikka click here.


  1. Wahh~ INdian version. That is clever. REally good first attempt. You are now the official gnocchi expert!

  2. That is a really cool idea to put an Indian spin on a classic Italian dish. And your gnocchi are really well formed, such nice little pillows.

  3. These gnocchi look perfect! Great idea to do Indian too, looks absolutely delicious :)

  4. I loved your chicken tikka recipe and how perfect to serve it with these scrumptious gnocchi! Excellent!

  5. That's a nice looking potato gnocchi and paring it with chicken tikka is beautiful. I could imagine the flavors of the chicken absorbing the potatoes.

  6. They look very nice with chicken tikka. Very creative to have an Indian version, love it!

  7. First time gnocchi maker? look like a seasoned professional! Well done!

  8. Nice try, Shirley! Oh that's why everyone is making this gnocchi recipe at the same time. haha... I was like WHAT happening here! When I checked the followers' page this morning. Well done! & Have a great weekend.

  9. That's a very successful first attempt at gnocchi, Shirley. Congrats!

  10. Gnocchi can definitely be intense to make from scratch. The first (and only) time I've ever done potato gnocchi, it was an all day affair and there were many points when I was standing in the kitchen, covered in flour when I thought about giving up. But I stuck with it and sure was glad I did! yours look fantastic...perfectly shaped. And I ADORE the fusion idea! Love it.

  11. Awesome first attempt at gnocchi. They look great.

  12. Glad I wasn't the only one who got inventive due to the lack of a potato ricer! Can't believe it was your first time - they look so good.

  13. Gnocchi with chicken tikka, looks absolutely delicious. I haven't had gnocchi for a while...and look forward to have it again...

  14. I liked the Mcgyver type ingenuity of replacing the ricer with what you had. Well done.
