Mashed potatoes are a duck made with cooked and crushed potatoes, as well as other ingredients. It considered in almost all kitchens as an accompaniment to another dish, usually made with meat or fish.
Potatoes are one of those quintessential ingredients that allow us to create and do many things in the kitchen, whether they are French fries, cooked potatoes, stewed potatoes, baked potatoes, stuffed potatoes, or as in our case one of the iconic mashed potatoes.
One of the most common mistakes when preparing mashed potatoes is that we have lumps or perhaps little creamy, so I leave some tips for you to make the best mash:
- When buying potatoes, try to choose those that contain good starch, which gives more texture to the mash.
- When you put the potatoes to cook, add salt to the cooking water when it is still cold, and also add a little salt when the mash is ready.
- We will also cook them with the skin to prevent the water from entering the potato and leaving it watery.
- We must try to keep all the potatoes of the same size, so that their cooking point is the same, since, if there is a large and a small potato, its cooking point varies.
- Use a potato press instead of using a blender or food processor.
- In the end, the mash should crush hard and very well. It is the only way to prevent clumps.
These are some of the most important tips when making good mashed potatoes. I hope you are encouraged and prepare it with us. It will be delicious. Let’s cook.
