I am not sure which cookshow my kids were surfing this afternoon but I chanced on an excellent way of eating mashed potatoes. Read on…
I took out the food processor and mashed my potatoes.
Two large potatoes, boiled, skinned and mashed
50 mls of milk (more if your potatoes is still too hard)
1 tiny cube of butter, the size of a small matchbox
Pinch of salt
Mustard (I used fish sauce!)
You can manually mashed and mixed the above up.
I got a mashed potato which I think is nice. But my son whom had read far too many scientific stuffs explained that when I used a mechanical food processor to mash potatoes, it breaks down the molecules, cause the potato to turn gooey yadda yadda yadda and he even illustrates it by turning the bowl of mashed potato upside down to show me that the potato is way too sticky. Kids!
Now, the secret ingredient. The brown sauce is HP sauce. It enhances the creamy flavour of the mashed potato. Try it! Good alternative when I don’t know how to prepare brown sauce like KFC.
HP sauce is the blue bottle on the right. These are bottles of sauce I used for BBQ.
