Gnocchi are a distinct pasta with a long history and a traditional recipe, but they can also be transformed into an innovative dish with new flavors and textures, such as fried gnocchi.


  • 0.15 kg of flour.
  • Half a kg of mashed potatoes.
  • 0.1 kg of fine grated cheese.
  • An egg unit
  • A tablespoon of baking powder.
  • Nutmeg.
  • Salt.
  • Three egg units.
  • Three tablespoons of flour.
  • Two handfuls of grated cheese.


  1. Wash the potatoes thoroughly and cook them in salted water with their skins until soft. The best way to tell if they are ready is to prick them with a knife; the skins should easily fall off.
  2. Allow to cool slightly before removing the peel and mashing to make a puree.
  3. Then make a crown with the puree and add the lightly beaten egg in the center, then add the flour with the baking powder little by little, mixing everything with a wooden spoon, making sure to unify by kneading to the smallest extent. It should be a smooth, homogeneous dough that does not stick to your hands.
  4. Next, flour a counter and place the dough on it. Take portions and make 1 centimeter thick rolls, then cut small portions, up to 2 centimeters long, and form balls.
  5. The balls should be rolled in beaten egg, flour, and grated cheese.
  6. Fry in a frying pan with a lot of oil but not at a high temperature.
  7. When the gnocchi are done, drain them on absorbent paper to remove any excess oil.
  8. Serve the gnocchi crispy, hot, and with your favorite sauce (which fries, ketchup or ketchup, mayonnaise, cheese sauce, etc. are great for you).


As a more complete and main course, they can also be served with tomato sauce and salad.
