Vegan Mashed Aloo (Indian Mashed Potatoes)

March 6, 2015

I love mashed potatoes.  I love Indian food.  Why not combine the two and get something really awesome?  I think you’re going to like this!

This is a simple vegan recipe that creates a delicious side, and goes perfectly with any Indian cuisine you decide to cook up!

**Note:  This is a great recipe for you vegans out there that have partners who are not vegan.  When I make this at home, I usually make some type of Indian meat dish that my boyfriend can have with these potatoes.  Then I make myself something vegan that goes with the Indian theme…that way we’re both happy.


  • 2 1/4 Pounds
    Potatoes (peeled and cubed into 1 inch cubes)
  • 1/2 Cup
    Unsweetend Soy Milk
  • 1/4 Cup
    Soy cream
  • 4-6 Tablespoons
    Soy butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1
    Hot green chili (minced)
  • 1 Teaspoon
    Garam masala
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon
    Fresh lemon juice


  1. Boil the potatoes in a big pot of water until they are so tender that you can mash them easily with a fork. Drain the water. Warm up the milk, cream, and butter in a small pan or a bowl in the microwave and add to the potatoes. Mash everything up with a fork or a potato masher and then hit it with a hand mixer, just to ensure you don't have any hidden lumps. Add the green chilli, garam masala, cayenne, lemon juice and stir. Add salt and pepper to taste.
