Mashed Potato

Hmm.......all this talk of potatoes, mashed potatoes, fries, curry with potatoes are making me hungry. I think I'll make some mashed potato today. I just bought some nice potatoes from the market in Kepong this morning, by the way.

Lupie, this is specially for you.... :D

Ok, let's gather all the ingredients. As the recipe is my own, and I kept adding and stirring without pre-measuring the ingredients, you'll have to adjust the measurements by adding a bit at a time until you get the flavour you like. I like it really soft and smooth with a buttery flavour so I do use quite a bit of milk and butter.

5 potatoes
Fresh milk (warmed it slightly first)
Butter
A pinch of salt

Method:
1. Bring water to a boil,  with a bit of salt in it to bring it to a higer temperature.
2. Add potatoes and boil for about 20 minutes till soft.
3. Drain the potatoes.
4. Mash the potatoes with butter and fresh milk.
5. Add a pinch of salt to give it a fuller flavour.

If you don't have ready fresh milk, you can substitute with powdered milk. I've done that before.

Lupie: Yes, it's easy to make. I forgot to mention earlier that the fresh milk has to be warmed first, or your mashed potato will be cold.

My Maggi history is almost similar to yours except that the Assam Laksa flavour and Curry flavour are the other way round.

Zee: What is kruk kruk?? For mee goreng, I like the Myojo Mee Goreng Pedas....hmm...yum-yum. Or, I make my own...heehee....you must try to make it too, recipe in this blog, under post titled "What's for dinner tonight?".

I think I'll go make one for supper now.....all this talk about food just makes me drool.... :)~~~
