    Mashed potatoes or should I say aloo choka, the ultimate comfort food. Even better spicy mashed potatoes. It’s amazing what a bland potato can be transformed into. This dish is the perfect accompaniment to dhal and rice. Have any extras still left over? Make aloo roti !


    1. Fill a large pot with water and add whole potatoes with the skin on. I don’t cut the potatoes when boiling them, doing so I notice them absorbing too much water when boiling
    2. Boil until fork tender
    3. Drain and set aside to cool
    4. Once cool, peel the skin off the potatoes
    5. Mash potatoes until smooth. You can use a fork or a potato ricer for extra smoothness
    6. Mash in the chopped onions and or scallions, wiri wiri pepper and salt
