How to cook potatoes

Potatoes can be cooked in a variety of ways, here are a few popular methods:

  1. Boiling: Potatoes can be boiled in water until they are tender. They can be boiled whole or cut into chunks. Boiled potatoes can be served as a side dish or used in other dishes such as potato salad.

  2. Baking: Potatoes can be baked in the oven by rubbing them with oil and seasoning, then placed in a preheated oven at about 180°C (350°F) for 45 minutes to 1 hour until the skin is crispy and the inside is tender.

  3. Roasting: Potatoes can be cut into chunks and tossed with oil, herbs, and seasonings before roasting in a preheated oven at about 200-220°C (400-450°F) for 30-40 minutes until they are golden brown and tender.

  4. Mashing: Potatoes can be boiled or baked and then mashed with butter, milk, and seasonings to make a smooth and creamy mashed potatoes.

  5. Frying: Potatoes can be cut into thin slices or chunks and deep-fried in oil until they are golden brown and crispy. Frying can be done twice, first at a lower temperature to cook the potatoes, then at a higher temperature to crisp the skin and give them a golden color.

  6. Grilling: Potatoes can be sliced and grilled on a barbecue, or skewered and grilled, they can be seasoned with herbs and oil before grilling.
