Mashed Potatoes

Creamy Mash Potatoes are our favorite side dish with grilled fish or sausages. This recipe is inspired by the Masterclass by Gary Mehigan. Hope you love creamy mash potatoes!

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking : 3 minutes
Serves: 2

  • Potatoes - 5, medium size
  • Butter - 20 gms. 
  • Warm Milk - 20 ml.
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Garlic - 2 cloves, finely grated
  • Chili flakes - for garnishing
How to prepare Mashed Potatoes:

  • Clean and peel the potatoes and boil them for 15 minutes. I microwave potatoes with water for 12 minutes. Check that the potatoes are tender and crush easily.
  • Drain the water. Crush the potatoes using a fork or potato mash. 
  • In a pan, add the crushed potatoes and mix for about a minute.
  • Now add the butter and garlic and mix well. The butter should coat the potatoes well. In case it does not, add a little more butter.
  • Mix for about 2 minutes. Now add the milk and saute so that the potatoes and milk make a smooth mash.
  • Add salt and butter to taste. 
Garnish with chili flakes and enjoy with your favorite dish!
