About Gnocchi & Spinach Stir Fry Recipe

Gnocchi in Italian style is generally made with potatoes and refined flour. They are small dumplings that are boiled and sauteed with butter or any sauce preferred. They are had as a pasta based dish. But here I gave a new twist to Gnocchi which I stir fried with spinach for a perfect side dish that goes very well with our very own chapattis or rice. And for a healthier version, I went in for sweet potatoes and whole wheat flour. So replace the usual potatoes and paneer with Gnocchi and make your spinach curry in this new style. So check for a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.
