In India, we have a plenty of dishes made of potatoes. But I'm confused what term we use for the 'form of potatoes' used.
Here, in this context, 'minced potatoes' is out of question because the dishes require 'boiled potato' and also, you don't cut potatoes.
Is it smashed potatoes or pounded? What do we call the potatoes when they are boiled, skin removed and then pounded/mashed? They ultimately become a paste like (no moisture though, I don't have this word actually). Say, you can make balls out of it.
So, if I am making an Indian dish, how do I instruct the reader?
The dish requires 'mashed/pounded' or 'grounded' potatoes? Image will help.
Mind it, I'm not talking about the dish named 'Mashed Potatoes'. However, I'm open for this option to mean that the potatoes are mashed to be used in an Indian dish.
For foreigners, take 'potato wedges'. Remove outer fried layer and what you see inside, I'm talking about it.
