Ghee Mashed Potatoes
Ghee is a type of clarified butter that’s frequently used in Indian cuisine. It’s pure butterfat that’s lightly toasted, lending a mild buttery flavor to your mashed potatoes. Ghee is also great for sautéing and high-heat cooking, since its smoke point is much higher than that of regular butter. Add richness to the dish by throwing in a bit of sour cream, or swapping out the milk for buttermilk.

Recipe Notes

P.S. If you can’t find ghee at your grocery store or want to save some cash by making your own, here’s how you do it: Melt a stick of butter over medium-low heat. Let cook until the butter smells toasty and some of the solids at the bottom have begun to brown but not burn, 7 to 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and tilt the pan to one side. Use a spoon to skim off all of the whey foam at the top. Strain through a piece of cheesecloth and refrigerate until ready to use.
