Stir-fried Gnocchi

2 whole Large Russet Potatoes - Boiled And Peeled
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoons Black Pepper, Ground
1 teaspoon Fresh Thyme, Finely Chopped
1 cup All Purpose Flour/ Wheat Flour
1 teaspoon Olive Oil Or Butter
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil/butter
1 whole Medium Sized Onion, Cut In Half Then Thinly Sliced
1/4 cups Cabbage, Cut Into Thin Strips
1/2 teaspoons Salt
1/4 teaspoons Black Pepper, Ground
1 teaspoon Sriracha Sauce/ Hot Sauce
1- 1/2 Tablespoon Light Soya Sauce
2 Tablespoons Tomato Ketchup/ Tomato Paste
1 teaspoon White Vinegar


For the gnocchi: 1. Using a grater, grate the boiled and peeled potatoes into thin fine strands. Put the potatoes into a bowl. 2. Now add the salt, pepper and chopped thyme and gently combine into the potato shreds using a fork. 3. Now slowly add flour (1 tablespoon at a time) into the potato mixture and with a soft hand start kneading the dough. Add only enough flour until a soft but firm dough consistency is reached. 4. Divide the dough into 4 portions. Take each portion and using both hands, roll the dough into a thin long rope (about 1/2 inch diameter). Using a sharp knife, cut the rope into 1/2 inch pieces. Roll each 1/2-inch sized piece between your palms to form ball shape. Repeat the process with all the sections of dough. Sprinkle some flour over the formed balls to prevent them from sticking to each other. 5. Now, take a big pot and fill it 3/4 of the way full with water. Put it over a high flame and let it come to a boil. Once the water starts to boil, add the butter or olive oil and gently add some gnocchi dough balls into the water (dont crowd the pot). Let it boil. Depending on the size of the balls, it will take about 4-5 minutes before the balls pop up on the surface of the water. At that point remove them to a plate and continue cooking the rest of the balls. For the preparation: 1. While the gnocchi balls are cooking, take a separate large saute pan and heat it over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil/butter and let it heat up. Now add the sliced onion and cabbage and saute on medium high flame. Keep tossing to avoid the vegetables from burning. Once the vegetables are slightly brownish on the edges, bring down the flame to low heat. 2. Add the cooked gnocchi into the saute pan and bring the heat to medium-high to stir fry. 3. Sprinkle in salt and pepper and let the gnocchi balls stir fry to get a little crunch on the surface. 4. Then add in the Sriracha sauce, soy sauce, tomato paste and vinegar and gently toss with the gnocchi to combine. Let it saute for about 2 minutes. Then your stir-fried gnocchi is ready to be served!
