Saffron & Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Saffron & Garlic Mashed Potatoes
  • 8 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 large pinch of Sadaf saffron
  • 5 TBS butter
  • Salt and pepper
Directions: Place the potatoes and garlic in a pot. Add a dash of salt to water and bring to a boil. Lower heat till it simmers and cook the potatoes until soft for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and drain. Place potatoes back in pot. Add butter. Start mashing potatoes either with hand held masher or electric mixer, which we find a bit easier, until soft. Place the milk in a saucepan. Add saffron and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the milk with Saffron and the cream. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper. Mix again, and enjoy! ENJOY IT
