Indian Mashed Potatoes – Aloo Bharta (Mustard, Onion & Garlic): creamy and extremely flavorful Indian style mashed potato (aloo bharta) using onion, garlic, mustard sauce along with spices. You only need to cook potatoes and the rest ingredients are just chopped and mixed.
This creamy Indian mashed potatoes recipe offers a delightful twist on a classic comfort food. There’s something undeniably comforting about a bowl of mashed potatoes, and when you add Indian spices, and fresh herbs to the mix, you get a dish that’s not only comforting but also bursting with delicious flavors.
it’s the perfect side dish to complement your Thanksgiving/festive meals, or Indian meals or serve as a standalone comfort food.
This is a quick, simple, and delicious recipe and the ONLY thing that needs to be cooked in it are the Potatoes!
Trust me the taste of freshly chopped onion, and cilantro along with powdered spices is going to enhance the flavors exponentially.
We start by boiling the potatoes by any method you please example ‘pressure cooker’, ‘instant pot’ or simply boiled in a pot.
Then we cool the potatoes till warm to the touch … 1 EXTREMELY Important Tip for creamy – evenly mashed potatoes is to work with warm boiled potato as it helps in even texture. Use a potato masher or shredder to mash them.
Then add melted butter (leaving 2-3 tsp of butter intact for garnish) and milk to the mashed potato and mix evenly using a whisk. This helps in creating airy/light and even mash.
Then we thinly chop the onion and fresh cilantro (you can add freshly chopped chilies too if you like them).
Then in a large bowl, add the mashed potatoes, chopped onion, cilantro, and all the spices along with mustard sauce.
For this recipe, I’m using garlic powder but you can even use cooked and mashed garlic. Just don’t add freshly chopped garlic as it will over-power the flavors/taste and sometimes even gives a sour taste.
Mix using a spatula or large spoon. Check for salt and other flavors and adjust as per taste.
Transfer to a serving bowl/platter and drizzle a spoon of melted butter along with freshly chopped cilantro, red chili flakes, and black pepper powder on it.
Add a tsp of butter on top and serve.
We can even call it a ‘Mustard Garlic Indian Mashed Potato’ or even Bengali Aloo Bhorta.

Boil The Potatoes:
Mash the Potatoes:
Potatoes: you can take large, medium, or small potatoes. I prefer russet potatoes for the mash recipe as they are the creamiest but any potatoes would do.
Butter: you can take unsalted or lightly salted butter like amul butter and adjust salt accordingly.
Red Onion: I'm using red onions as they give the best taste but you can also use white or yellow onion or even shallots.
Mustard Sauce: I'm using Indian mustard sauce for its strong flavors, you can use 'brown or spicy mustard sauce' too.
