Gnocchi with Mushrooms

Shall go straight to the recipe. my 8 month old will wake up anytime.

Buy a packet of gnocchi. The process of making it is long and you may not get desired results each time.

Dunk the gnocchi into boiling water. When they rise up on the surface you know they are done.

Prepare the sauce : melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add a clove of crushed garlic. Add 2tbsp of flour (maida) and whisk like hell for 2 minutes on low flame. Switch the gas off. Add 1 cup of milk gradually. Keep stirring. There shouldn't be any lumps. Add 1 cup of cream. Switch the gas on. On low flame, keep stirring till the sauce thickens. Add freshly grated nutmeg, just a pinch.

Take a tsp on butter and add mushrooms. Fry for about 6-7 minutes or till mushrooms are done.

Add gnocchi to the mushrooms to let it soak up the mushroom flavour. Toss the mixture in the sauce. Grate a lot of parmesan on top and serve.
