No. of Servings : 2

Calories : 350 Kcal


For the gnocchi dough:

1 cup AP flour
1/2 cup pureed sweet pumpkin
1/3 cup Protein powder (Unflavoured)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper powder
1 tbsp oil
Water (if necessary) to bind the dough

For the sauce:
1 tbsp for frying + 1 tbsp for the sauce
4 green chilli
5 cloves of garlic
1 tsp red chili powder
2 tsp flour
1/2 cup soy milk (if you want the sauce to be runny, then add a little more)
1/2 tsp salt


Mix the above ingredients to form a semi – soft dough. Divide the dough into 1.5 cm diameter dough balls. To make the pumpkin shape, flatten the dough ball from the top. Add indentations with a spoon on the sides(about 7 all around). Boil water in a large pot. Add salt. Once the salt has dissolved, add the gnocchi. They’ll fall to the bottom of the pan. When they’re cooked, the gnocchi will float to the surface of the boiling water. Drain the water.

Fry the cooked gnocchi until one side is golden brown.

Start preparing the sauce next. Add in the green chilis, garlic, red chili powder and flour. Fry until the flour has become brownish in color. Add in the soy milk. Stir until smooth. Add salt.

Add in the gnocchi. When bubbles start forming in the sauce, turn off the heat.
