Mashed Potato

Who does not love potatoes? It is a versatile vegetable which goes in the making of hundred's of sabzi's, pav bhaji and so many other street foods. Mashed potatoes are a great side dish in these cold freezing winters. I like russet potatoes over yukon potatoes, but any variety of potatoes can be used to make mashed potatoes.


2 russet potatoes
2 tablespoon butter
3-4 tablespoon milk or as per desired
1 tablespoon heavy cream

Wash and boil the potatoes till soft. Drain them immediately. Peel them and mash them with a potato masher. Add butter, milk, cream, salt and pepper. Mix well with the back of a fork or a spoon. Serve hot.

Preparation time: 40 minutes
Serves: 2
