Mashed potatoes has a special place in everyone’s heart – my best friend and I visit an Italian restaurant many Saturday’s a month particularly for their garlic mashed potatoes – it’s a sacred bond between us and this restaurant and I can assure there is very little talk and whole lot of eating!

This is an all-American base using sour cream, cheese, garlic and chives, but with an Indian twist using crunchy Tandoori Masala tortilla chips from AL Chipino, which adds just the right amount of masala against the mellowness of the mashed potatoes.
