Copycat KFC Whipped Potato

Copycat KFC whipped potato with lots of gravy. My first time making it. If I can do it so can you. Coz it's really simple :)

If you are feeding the mashed potato to a baby, simply omit the salt and pepper in the mashed potato and use unsalted butter or you can just do away with the butter and add more milk. 

Recipe from Yean Leng

Ingredients for the mashed potato:
2 Russet potatoes
2 tbs milk
50g softened salted butter
400ml of water (to boil the potatoes)

For the gravy:
- Retain 250ml of water from boiling of the potatoes
- 5g butter
- 1.5 tsp of Knorr chicken powder (use the tsp provided in the bottle)
- 2 tsp cornstarch dissolve in 2 tbs of the 250ml of potato water
- 2 drops of dark soy sauce (for coloring purpose)
- pepper

1) Deskin the potatoes and cut each potato into 4 big slices. Place the cut potatoes into a pan or pot and add the 400ml of water. Bring water to boil and until potatoes are softened. *poke potatoes with a fork n if potatoes get poke through easily, it's done.

2) Scoop up the potatoes and add butter and pepper while the potatoes are still hot. Mash potatoes with a fork or masher. Add the milk, mash and stir all the ingredients until combined. *Don't overmix the potatoes. It will get starchy.

3) Retain 250ml of the water from boiling of the potatoes and discard the rest. From this 250ml of water, scoop 2 tbs of the water into a bowl and add the corn flour. Mix well and set the corn flour mixture aside.

4) Using a small pot, pour the 250ml of the potato water in it together with the chicken powder, butter, soy sauce and pepper. Bring to boil and stir in the corn flour mixture until the gravy is thicken.

5) Pour gravy over the mashed potato and you are done!
