Purple Sweet Potato Gnocchi In Rice Wine Sauce

No doubt, it's not easy to find the purple sweet potatoes these days. I guess it's my lucky day! I found some at the wet market yesterday and used half of them making sweet soup but the sweet potato wasn't as good as what I'm expecting. Maybe because of the rainy season. It's absolutely tasteless! So, I decided to use the other half to make gnocchi. Hopefully, it turns out great.

And here's the recipe.

Ingredients for Purple Sweet Potato Gnocchi :
350gm mashed purple sweet potato
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup all purpose flour
a splash of olive oil
a pinch of salt

Method : Refer here. (always remember to mix everything in while the mashed potato is still warm & with enough moisture)

Ingredients for Rice Wine Sauce :
100gm chicken minced
3/4 cup rice wine (or you can use Shaoxing wine)
1 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
1 large onion, diced
salt & pepper to taste

*thickening : 1 tpsn corn flour + 2 tbsp water (mixed well)

Method :
(1) marinade chicken minced with sesame oil, salt & pepper.
(2) preheat frying pan with just enough cooking oil.
(3) add in chicken minced and onion, sautee untill fragrant & the chicken is roughly cooked.
(4) add in rice wine and vegetarian oyster sauce, let it bring to boil.
(5) switch to low heat, add in salt & pepper to taste.
(6) then slowly stir in the thickening and off the heat.
(7) now, add in sweet potato gnocchi and mixed well.
(8) and serve hot with some chopped cilantro or spring onion.

I have to say I have no regret at all ! I think the sweetness of the rice wine sauce goes so perfectly well with the gnocchi and the colour is speechless. The addition of greens should brighten up the whole dish but I decided to go without it. Maybe you should! Hope you guys will like it too. Enjoy!

And before ending this, I would like to thank Elin for this lovely little package. You made my day, Santa mama! ;o) I'm going to make good use to them. Thanks so much !
