• 1 kg potatoes
  • 200 ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Salt to taste


  1. Peel the potatoes and cut them into small chunks.
  2. Rinse the potatoes under cold water to remove excess starch.
  3. Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover them with cold water.
  4. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat and cook the potatoes until they are tender when pierced with a fork (approximately 15-20 minutes).
  5. Drain the cooked potatoes and return them to the pot.
  6. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or a fork until they are smooth and free of lumps.
  7. In a small saucepan, heat the milk over low heat until warm (not boiling).
  8. Gradually add the warm milk and butter to the mashed potatoes, mixing well after each addition.
  9. Continue mashing and stirring the potatoes until they reach a creamy consistency.
  10. Season with salt to taste and adjust the milk and butter amounts if desired.
  11. Serve the Kartulipuder hot as a side dish with your favorite main course.

Note: Kartulipuder is often enjoyed with Estonian traditional dishes like meatballs (hakklihapallid) or sausages (vorstid) and accompanied by lingonberry or cranberry sauce.
