  • 8 medium potatoes peeled and diced
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 large pinch of saffron
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper


  • Place the potatoes and garlic in a pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the potatoes until fork tender, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and drain.
  • Place the potatoes back in the pot and return to the heat. Stir the potatoes, constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes to dehydrate the potatoes. Remove the potatoes from the heat.
  • Add the butter. Using a hand held masher, mash the butter into the potatoes.
  • Place the milk in a saucepan with the saffron and cook for about 5 minutes.
  • Add cream and saffron milk. The potatoes should still be sort of lumpy. Season the potatoes with salt and pepper.
