About this recipe: These noodles are similar to Italian gnocchi, only they are pan-fried instead of being boiled. They take a little time to make, but the results are really worth it. Serve with whatever you fancy.


Serves: 6 

  • 675g maris piper potatoes
  • 60g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 50g lard or other cooking fat

  1. Place whole potatoes in their skins into a large pot of boiling water; boil for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove potatoes and discard water. When cool enough to handle, peel potatoes and place on a lightly floured surface. Mash potatoes with a rolling pin.
  2. Place mashed potatoes into a large bowl. Stir in flour, egg, parsley, salt and nutmeg. Knead well to form a smooth dough. Then roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1.25cm. Cut flattened dough into thin strips, about 3.75cm long. Gently roll out the strips or stretch them until the ends taper. Set aside for 15 minutes.
  3. In a large frying pan, heat lard over medium heat. Place the noodles into the frying pan and fry until golden brown.
