Deep Frying… How Not To Prepare Gnocchi

March 8, 2011 | By More

Steve over at the Webstaurantstore attempted to deep fry gnocchi. Warning! Steve’s laugh is infectious!

Fried gnocchi can be delicious. Instead of deep frying store bought gnocchi, try making them at home. Here’s a great gnocchi recipe found on

Once you have your homemade gnocchi then just gently fry them in a pan with a little bit of oil. Here’s a recipe from Nigella for her Rapid Roastini (skip to 1:30).

Rapid Roastini


  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 250g/9oz ready-made or leftover potato gnocchi


  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy-based frying pan.
  2. When the oil is hot, put the gnocchi in, making sure you separate them as you do so, and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until golden-brown.
  3. Turn them over and give them another 3-4 minutes on the other side, or until browned on both sides.
  4. Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper, then sprinkle with sea salt flakes and serve.
