Gnocchi in Indian Curry Sauce with Spinach and Cheese Recipe is a preparation to increase the appeal of gnocchi with an Indian twist. Gnocchi is a soft, chewy dumpling that can be made from potato, semolina, wheat flour, egg, cheese, breadcrumbs, or a combination of similar ingredients. It is an Italian dish but is almost nativized and loved in South America and other European countries like France, Spain, Croatia etc.

Adding cheese to the sauce takes this dish  5 notches up. The creamy base of the sauce coats the gnocchi so well and holds up the robust flavours. I made the Gnocchi in Indian Curry Sauce with Spinach and Cheese with store-bought gnocchi. I can’t imagine how much more appetising it would be with some fresh homemade gnocchi…which makes me a perfect excuse to indulge in making them yet again!
