Yet, I found my taste for mashed potatoes long ago when I was a gawky, nerdy teenager studying for my tenth standard examinations. I would make this recipe and eat it when I would feel hungry studying into the wee hours of the night.
You needn’t it eat in the middle of the night though. Just make this recipe and eat it warm. Tastes best with spicy gravy.
- 3 medium to large potatoes
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup milk
- 4 tbsp cream
- salt to taste
- pepper to taste
Peel the potatoes and cut them into several large pieces. Put them in a saucepan and cover them with plenty of water and add half a teaspoon of salt. Bring the water to a boil slowly. Once the water has boiled reduce the flame, cover the pan and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
Cook well till the potatoes are soft and done. Now remove them and drain the excess water on a tissue paper. Melt the butter and cream in a saucepan or in a microwave. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher or with a fork and add the butter and cream. Add the milk slowly till you get a creamy consistency. Add the salt and pepper and mix well.
Serve hot with a gravy of your choice.
