(Conversions For Cooking)

Cooking Procedures :

  1. Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water.  Heat to boiling and then reduce the heat and simmer until cooked through for about 12 to 16 minutes.
  2. Drain potatoes in a colander.  Immediately place potatoes back in the pot you cooked them in and place on same burner, which has been turned off.  Stir occasionally over next 5 minutes to let potatoes dry out.
  3. Pass potatoes through a ricer or a food mill.  Alternatively, leave potatoes in pot and mash by hand using a potato masher or wooden spoon.
  4. In a small saucepan, warm buttermilk over medium-low heat.  Do not boil.  Remove from heat.
  5. Stir in enough warmed buttermilk to the mashed potatoes to obtain desired consistency.  Add salt and cracked black pepper to taste, stirring until well combined.  Add sambal oelek, a tsp. at a time, tasting after each addition.
  6. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.
