I have hardly met anyone who does not like potatoes, so why leave out babies, they too love that carbohydrate kick.
Though its easy to make mashed potatoes in a cooker, it turns out very well when you boil potato pieces in a pot. So here is my Indianised version of mashed potatoes.
Step 1- Remove potato skin and cut the potato into small dices. Now boil it in water, dont add salt as it wont cook fast. Add 2-3 peppercorns to the water.
Step 2- Strain the cubes on a sieve, remove the peppercorns, add some salt and butter.
Step 3- Press down potato and butter on the sieve using the back on a spoon. You will find a smooth mash coming out of the sieve.
Step 4- you can add some water to make the paste thin. To this I add a pinch of cumin powder for digestion.
You can add grated cheese too.
