Creamy Mashed Potatoes is a dish made by mashing boiled potatoes, usually with added milk, butter, salt and pepper. It is generally served as a side dish to meat or vegetables. These potatoes are great and really easy to make. The garlic taste is subtle, but not overwhelming....the cheese adds a creaminess. Best mashed potatoes I've ever had and the cream cheese is the secret! Try out this version and make your weekend's breakfast special with loved ones:)

Ingredients :-

4 Potatoes, med size (peeled, cut into quarters & washed properly)

Water (enough for boiling)

½ tsp. Rock Salt

40 g./2 tbsp. Butter (salted)

½ cup/120 ml. Milk (boiled & at room temperature)

5-6 Garlic Cloves (minced)

1 tbsp. Cream Cheese

Salt to taste

1 tbsp./15 ml. Olive Oil

½ tsp. Black Pepper Powder

2-3 Fresh Coriander Sprigs/ 1 tbsp. Fresh Coriander (finely chopped)

Method :-

To the large bowl/vessel add water + rock salt and let it come to a boil. Once it starts boiling add potatoes to the bowl/vessel. Give a stir and cover the bowl/vessel with a lid. Let the potatoes cook for next 8-10 mins on low medium flame until soft

After 10 mins remove the lid and with the help of a fork check whether the potatoes have cooked properly or not? If yes, switch off the gas and dish out the boiled potatoes in a strainer and allow them to cool down

Once cold, mash the boiled potatoes in the strainer with the help of a spoon & allow to pass through the strainer for a smooth consistency. Set aside covered for later use

Heat butter in a non-stick pan. Once it starts melting add milk to the pan and let it come to a boil. Once it starts boiling add the minced garlic to the pan. Mix well and stir for 1-2 mins on low-medium flame

Next add the mashed potatoes to the pan. Mix well and stir for next 2-3 mins on low flame until milk gets completely absorbed by the potatoes and the potatoes texture turns into a smooth paste

Add cream cheese + salt to the pan and mix well. Stir for a minute and switch off the gas.

Transfer the mashed potatoes to a serving bowl and pour a tbsp. of olive oil on top of the potatoes

Sprinkle black pepper powder over the mashed potatoes and garnish with freshly chopped coriander

Time to Taste :)

Serve hot with boiled/poached eggs, sautéed veggies, grilled chicken/fish or breakfast of your choice
