I am a die-hard fan of Indian cuisine and usually very reluctant to try other cuisines apart from a few famous ones. But this lockdown has made me extend my boundaries, take, for example, resetting my taste buds. Isn’t it the same for you guys as well?
So a few days back, when my imagination reached the dead-end of what to cook next? I landed up to Chef Kirti Bhoutika’s account on Instagram. And the very next moment I was excited to cook one of the recipes which was a very café style dish, but I loved the ingredients, preparation and the flavours.
So, I am going to share with you all the recipe of very yummy and scrumptious Creamy herbed garlic potatoes. And don’t worry, nothing will go wrong when it is about milk, cheese, herbs, potatoes and garlic. Come on, let’s get started!

Creamy Herbed Potatoes – The Process:

2. Put oil and butter.
3. Once the oil is hot, put garlic.
4. Add mixed herbs/parsley.
5. Add coriander and chilli flakes. Mix them well.
6. Remember, not to overcook them since we just want the flavours to come together.
7. Add the crushed yellow mustard.
8. Add the potatoes and bell peppers.
9. Keep the flame high, to get the burnt flavour of potatoes and capsicum.
10. Now, pour in the milk.
11. Add crushed black pepper, salt and sugar. Mix everything well. Bring it to boil.
12. Add some grated cheese. Let it boil for another 2-3 mins.
13. Garnish with parsley and serve.
You can mix it with rice, pasta, or even just a bowl of this amazing dish is enough to make your day. I even tried it with roasted garlic bread and trust me, the crunch of bread and flavours of garlic went really well along with this dish.
Q1. What if you don’t have yellow mustard?
A1. No worries, this is optional. You can skip it.
Q2. Which milk do we require?
A2. Prefer using full-fat milk. Or else, you can use normal toned milk as well.
Q3. Can we put more milk and seasoning?
A3. Yes, absolutely. Add milk but remember to balance it with other ingredients too. You can add as much as milk and seasoning, depends on how much gravy you would want.
Few other key points:
- Keep the flame high while preparing this dish. You will get the roasted taste of potatoes and bell peppers which will just add to the flavours.
- Add cream (homemade malai/cream is also fine) to enhance the richness.
- Take a good quantity of oil and butter since a good amount of fat is required to prepare this dish.
