Mashed Potatoes - puree/mash recipe with potato, butter and black pepper powder
Recipe type: Baby Food
Cuisine: World
  • Potato  - 1 medium sized
  • Butter - 1 tsp
  • Breastmilk/Formula Milk/Cow's milk - 1 tbsp
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • Salt - as required
  • Pepper powder - ⅛ tsp
  1. Keep all the ingredients ready. Wash the potatoes thoroughly in running water. Peel the skin of potatoes using a peeler.
  2. Then cut them into small cubes. Then boil them in a sauce pan with a cup of water until soft. Alternatively you can also pressure cook the potatoes with enough water for 2-3 whistles or you can steam cook/bake the potatoes too.
  3. Once the potatoes are cooked, strain the potatoes using a strainer to remove the excess water (if any). Then place the potato pieces in to a wide bowl.
  4. Now add butter and asafoetida to the potatoes. Mash the potatoes well (without any chunks) with a fork or potato masher. Add breastmilk/formula milk/ Cow's milk, pepper powder and salt. Mix well until you get a creamy mash. Alternatively you can puree the potatoes in a mixie/blender along with milk, salt and pepper to get fine puree.
