  3. 2. Add the raw eggs to the mash and mix thoroughly
  4. 3. Start adding the self-rising flour and mixing with your hand. Add as much as needed and knead until it does not stick to your fingers easily.

  6. **20 minute wait**
  7. 5. Cut pieces of dough and roll out to about 11 inches lenght. Cut the long dough into smaller rectangular pieces. Roll pieces through a fork to shape, move to a flour dusted surface to wait for cooking (cover with cloth if it takes long)
  8. 6. When all gnocchi are done, you can cook them in boiling water until they float to the top. (Alternatively you can layer them on tapperware using flour and baking paper and place in freezer. Dump frozen gnocchi into boiling water to cook)
