Recipe's preparation

  1. Pop the basket in the bowl Closed lid and measure in the potatoes.
  2. Add in your 500g of warm tap water.
  3. Pop on lid, MC and Cook for 25 minutes, varoma (steam), speed 2.

    (I steam my vegetables in the varoma whilst the potatoes are cooking)
  4. Using your spatula, take out the simmering basket, empty the water, add your butterfly in the bowl and add in the cooked potato.

    (If steaming your veggies take off varoma, and pop to the side. )
  5. Add butter, stock and half the milk
  6. Mix for 15 seconds speed 4 (Add more time If needed)
  7. Add the rest of the milk if needed.
    15 seconds speed 4

    (Depending on the season of potatoes, is if I need to add the extra milk.
    Peek through the lid during the first step after about 10 seconds of mixing to gauge the consistency. You can then know if you would like it smoother, or fluffy. )
  8. Add your salt if desired.

    (I use salted butter so I skip this, but I know many use unsalted so added this step for that)
