personally, i am on the fence about this recipe, but tipping over to the 4* side of the fence since DH quite liked this. i think for him, it was reminiscent of a popular south indian savory dish made from semolina called upma. i could not quite adapt my palate to this in the savory form, so it was just okay for me - i think i will stick with the traditional potato when it comes to gnocchi.
