Mashed Potato :-)

 There is something very comforting, about Mashed Potatoes. The creamy, utterly  buttery smell wafts into you, the gorgeous golden colour that invited you to have a bite, the absolutely soft potatoes that remind you why its comfort food!

Ive always loved mashed potatoes and KFC has been profiting from its mashed potatoes and cheesy Wedges, with me as the single most loyal customer (at least where potatoes are concerned).

Was very hungry and the image of perfectly mashed creamy potatoes wafted into my mind. Off to the kitchen and made some yummm mashed potato :D
it isnt really rocket science and its probably the simplest recipe known to mankind!

Ingredients :

1 Russet/baking potato (# depending on how hungry you really are)
4 tbsp Milk
Dollop of Mayonnaise 

Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Pepper
Pinch of Nutmeg Powder


1. Cut the potato into small cubes and bring to boil over medium flame
2. It takes approximately 20 minutes. Drain the water once the potatoes are soft.
3. Use a potato masher and mash the potatoes. Add milk as you you mash the potatoes.
4. Add salt , pepper and sprinkle nutmeg powder as you mash and till you like how it does taste.
5. For the final sinful touch, add a dollop of mayonnaise and whip it around.

Dig In!!!
*For extra sinful additions, you can add a 1 tsp butter
** Add colors by mashing carrot or anything else that you fancy
*** The Nutmeg powder is the King Queen of the Dish ;-) 
-King has to be the Potatoes of course :-p)

Either ways, have a yummy meal :D

  5. bee - I would've liked to say that a certain someone shouldn't speak of ambitious dieting plans while gobbling down any food that comes by; let alone put up recipes to fatten other people up :P But knowing how much care and love go in to your dishes, i can only say "Yaaarmiee" :)
