How to Make the Mashed Potatoes

This creamy mashed potatoes recipe is so  good and yummy.

2 Cups Mash Potatoes
¼ Cup Hot milk
50 Gram Salted Butter
Salt to taste
Pepper Powder to taste


Boil the potatoes whole till done. When cooled then peel and mash them well till smooth. 
Place the mashed potatoes on to a sauce pan add hot milk and whisk it well till incorporated, now add the butter and cook it till smooth and the butter melts, continue whisking till it is smooth. Add salt and pepper powder to taste. Serve warm.
My Notes 
Potatoes must be cooked whole (do not chop).
Lots of butter and don’t skip here , it works but it taste incredible with the amount called for.

Hot milk incorporates very well into the potatoes and keeps the potatoes warm.
