HELP! Troubleshooting Gnocchi...

Juniper | Jan 26, 2012 02:55 PM

So I tried to make gnocchi tonight...

I had about 1 kg of potatoes cooked and mashed. Added a 1/2 cup of flour and one egg. Mixed it all together. It failed to really resemble a doughy mass, and it was instead incredibly sticky. I thought this was an indication that the mixture needed more flour. So I added a bit less than 1/4 cup of flour and mixed it all in. Still too sticky. Added another dusting of flour and incorporated it. The dough became even stickier than it was before!!

Any idea what went wrong??
