Mashed Potato tastes plain. Why?
Hello to everybody!
I'm a newbie to cooking and newbie to this forum.
self intro : I'm from Singapore. I'm 32F single. I grew up with Chinese foods. And I can't cook for nuts, because in Singapore, there's cheap tasty food every where here. (People who cannot cook will not die from hunger in Singapore. )
But two weeks ago, I decided to enter the adventurous world of cooking.
Pls help with my mashed potato. why does it taste bland??
I used 3 big potatos, with 200ml milk and 50 g unsalted butter and 1 bunch of scallions and half tea spoon salt.
Is it that I havent added enough salt or that it is meant to taste this bland??
The problem with recipes is, they never tell you how much salt to put. They just say "SOME salt and pepper"
How much is SOME???? Zeesh, How would a newbie know???
How can I improve my recipe?
Thank you, dear forum for the answer and help.
