Ginger Mashed Potatoes with Yogurt


  • 1 1/2 lbs. potatoes
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I like Strauss)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • 1-3 fresh chile peppers, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped very fine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil (I like coconut oil or olive oil)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons peeled minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives (optional)


Boil potatoes in water until tender. Drain, peel, coarsely mash. With fork, lightly mix in yogurt, cilantro, mint, chile peppers, garlic, and salt. Heat oil and add cardamom, cinnamon, cumin, and black pepper. Stir 1 minute, add ginger and cook another minute. Pour over potatoes and garnish with chives.
