Potato Dumpling

Cooked balls that are made from potato based dough are potato dumplings. They may be fried or boiled. They are also known as gnocchi or pirogues. Potatoes are used raw for making potato dumplings which are afterwards shredded, boiled and then mashed. If the potatoes are allowed to cool before making the dumplings, it helps the ball stay in shape.
