If you are looking for a delicious and easy-to-prepare recipe, look no further because this creamy mashed potato recipe will make all your stews taste elite.

Here is how to prepare creamy mashed potatoes


Two pounds of potatoes

Half a cup of milk

Four tablespoons of butter

Salt and pepper to taste

Coriander leaves or parsley for garnishing


Peel the potatoes and cut them into small cubes, about one inch in size, this will help them to cook more quickly and evenly. Rinse the potatoes in cold water to remove any excess starch.

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan cover with cold water and add a pinch of salt.

Bring the pan to a boil over medium heat and cook the potatoes until fork tender, about 15-20 minutes.

While the potatoes are cooking, heat the milk and butter together in a small saucepan over low heat until the butter melts. Set aside.

When the potatoes are cooked, drain well and return to the saucepan. Use a potato masher or fork to mash the potatoes, slowly adding the milk and butter mixture until the desired consistency is achieved.

Serve your creamy mashed potatoes on a plate or in a bowl and garnish with coriander leaves or parsley. Enjoy!
