もちもちニョッキ Rice Gnocchi


Instead of high gluten flour, I used powdered rice for gnocchi. There're much of them left which I have used for making Japanese sweets.

*Ingredients*材料 for two people 二人前
two large potatoes じゃがいもLサイズ2個
70g of powdered rice 上新粉70g
30g of pastry flour 薄力粉30g
a pinch of salt 塩少々
an egg (will not use all of them) 卵1個(全部使わない)
some powdered cheese 粉チーズ少々

1) じゃがいもは洗い、皮のまま電子レンジで調理します。ラップを使い、600Wで、竹ぐしを刺してチェックしながら4~5分。Wash the potatoes and cook with microwave without peeling the skin. Use plastic wrap, heat for 4-5minutes (600W).

2) じゃがいもの皮をむいて、つぶします。Peel the skin of the potatoes and mash.

3) 冷めたら、上新粉、小麦粉、塩、粉チーズを加えます。軽く混ぜます。溶き卵を少しずつ加えて、よくこねながら、1つにまとめます。溶き卵の量はやわらかさを見て調節します。When the mashed potatoes cooled down, add powdered rice, flour, salt and powdered cheese. Mix briefly. Pour beaten egg little by little and knead well. Adjust the amount of the egg according the softness of the dough.

4) 打ち粉をしいた板の上で生地を細長く伸ばします。1.5センチ程度に切って、フォークを押し付けて溝を作ります。Roll the dough on the powder-shifted board and make it longer. Cut in pieces of 1.5 cm and push a fork on to make some trenches.

5) 鍋にお湯をわかし、ニョッキをゆでます。浮かんできたら1~2分ゆでて、すくい上げます。Boil water in a pot and put gnocchi. When they rise up, leave for a couple of minutes and scoop.

Enjoy them with your favorite sauce. We ate them with Ratatouille and it was delicious.

Le creuset that we received as a gift the other day. The first cooking was carrot soup.

Danke for your visit and comment! It was very kind of you to write something like thishappy01

I started writing in English since I found some visitors were non-Japanese (including my family-in-law). I tried French food as my husband is a French, but I will post more Japanese recipes later. Please feel free to ask if there is anything unclearwink

birthdayI am so excited to learn some new recipes from you!wink Even western
recipes from japan are different,
for example potato or corn soup does
not taste the same as what I had as a
child. When I try to look up recipes
from Japan for none traditional Japanese recipes I can not find them.
I would love to see kids foods or cute food for little kids. I know so little
about everyday food in Japan. I am so
happy to have met you! Thank you! I
will check often to see what you can
teach me! Arigato Sensei!

Well, I'm no professional but I love Japanese home cookinghappy01
For your information, my mother-in-law also wanted Japanese recipes and I gave her a book by Harumi Kurihara, who is very famous housewife-cook and received an award in Italy.
Kids food is fun:-) I'm looking forward to cooking some for my kids in the near futureshine
