Instead of boiling the potatoes, baking them will yield a different flavor. Boiled potatoes have a waxy feel while baked potatoes will have a slightly powdery feel.

As for garlic, I found it very good if the garlic is roasted. Just cover a clove with virgin olive oil and wrap in foil to be baked with the potatoes. The garlic will mush very easily and this goes well easily when the potatoes are mashed.

genie

have you tried the China Fragrant Garlic? Its very nice..! Razz

this is how it looks like:



its the whole bulb. Its not as strong a flavour like the local ones. Its quite mild. But very fragrant. Now I must have this for everything I cook these days.

Personally, I prefer steaming potatoes versus boiling.

About 30 minutues depending on how large your potatoes are. Steam them whole.

Hi mycoffee,


If i skip the nutmeg, will it make a great difference to the dish?
To add in garlic, do i just throw in freshly chopped ones? Very Happy
