Mashed potatoes is one of my favourite side dishes. Since my childhood I have a problem with rice, I do not like it.. I will eat it and even cook it if I have to, but I usually try and avoid it… I have tried A LOT of mashed potato recipes and I have concluded to this simple, quick and very tasty one that can accompany most of your meat dishes.
You will need:
– 6-7 medium potatoes pealed
– 3 tbsp of butter (if it is possible avoid margarine)
– 1 tbsp cumin powder
– a small glass of cream
– a garlic clove, crushed
– salt and pepper to taste
Cut potatoes in small 2 cm pieces. Bring the to boil for about 15 min. Make sure they are not completely mushy. Strain them and add the butter, start crushing them with a fork, when butter has dissolved add cream and keep crushing with the fork. When it has formed a smooth paste like texture add cumin powder, salt and pepper. And voilà your purée is ready to devour
TIP: You can increase or decrease all the ingredients to your taste. The cream is used to make the purée more liquid; you can alternatively use milk or a combination of both.
