Easy Peasy Mashed Potato

scrumptious homemade mashed potato

the Ingredients:
A dash of Mixed Herbs

a handful Crinkle Cut chips, a straight cut also can

a dash of chicken granule

a bit of salt (optional)
a dash of ground black pepper
chopped fresh herbs: mint/basil/rosemary (optional)

How to Cook:
  1. add plain water to a cup of crinkle/straight cut potato. amount of water is depending on how moist (or lembik) you want your mashed potato to be. boil or microwaved for 2 mins.
  2. strain a bit of the water if you want your mashed potato to be thick. mash the chips with spoon so it became a soft texture. if u like, you can spare a few chips from being smashed entirely so that it will be of different texture.
  3. add mixed herbs, black pepper, chicken granule and some salt (optional) or chopped fresh herbs (optional) and stir evenly. it's done!
Serving: depends on how much fries you mashed

Preparation time: 3 mins at most.

i discover this recipe one fine night when i felt hungry with nothing much left in the fridge to cook for a proper meal. with some crinkle cut fries left, instead of frying (unhealthy owh!), i turned it into a filling impromptu snack. as usual, i substitute salt with chicken granule. if you like, you can add a topping of potato gravy (you have to cook it la), but to have this mashed potato on its own is enough to tide you over until your next proper meal.
