Mashed Potatoes Recipe for Babies and Toddlers
Mashed Potatoes - puree/mash recipe with potato, butter and black pepper powder
- Potato - 1 medium sized
- Butter - 1 tsp
- Breastmilk/Formula Milk/Cow's milk - 1 tbsp
- Asafoetida - a pinch
- Salt - as required
- Pepper powder - 1/8 tsp
Keep all the ingredients ready. Wash the potatoes thoroughly in running water. Peel the skin of potatoes using a peeler.
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.
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.
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.
