Potato lover: Gnocchi with curry sauce

Gnocchi.... hmm wondering what's that... Then I eat some of my cousin made.. Potato or pasta? Because the texture is like mashed potato but chewy... then months later, I open for the recipe. I don't have the cheese sauce so I'm thinking make one gnocchi recipe with curry sauce... Taste good!

From, I searh gnocchi history: "Gnocchi are eaten as a first course (primi piatti), alternatives to soups (minestre), or pasta. They are generally home-made in Italian and diaspora Italian households. They may also be bought fresh from specialty stores. In supermarkets, industrially-produced packaged gnocchi are widely available refrigerated, dried, or frozen. Common accompaniments of gnocchi include tomato sauces, pesto, and melted butter (sometimes fried butter) with cheese".

Cheese it is, then potato as the main ingredients. I thought this gonna be a hard-to-make recipe like making pasta from starch. It's not, fortunately and taste good. this recipe serve about 6 persons.

1 kg potato
200 g all purpose flour
2 egg
½ tsp white pepper powder
1 tsp salt
150 g Parmesan cheese (I use the powder one)

1/2 block curry ready-made
1/2 thin sliced onion (optional)
200 mL water (or more if it's too thick for you)

Wasabi for extra hot sauce

How to make:
1. Boil or steam the potato until soft (stab it with fork, if it's soft enough then it's good)
2. peel the potato skin then mashed the potato while it's hot
3. Add the rest of the ingredients for making gnocchi
4. Make the dough in a ball shape
5. Boil the water in a pan then add the gnocchi. When the gnocchi float, set it aside (use a small strainer).
6. Curry sauce: cut the curry block. Add the sliced onion on non-stick pan, then add the water and curry block. Cook in a small heat until it thickened.
7. Serve the gnocchi with the sauce on the top, then add wasabi or any sauce you like. Enjoy!

PS: If you like just plain gnocchi, add some parmesan powder...tasty to eat also!
