How to Rice Potatoes Without a Ricer

If mashed potatoes are your favourite comfort food, but your homemade mash always ends up a little on the lumpy side, rice the potatoes like professional chefs do. A potato ricer is a kitchen tool that creates small bits of potato that resemble rice, hence the name. Unlike a food processor or immersion blender, the ricer doesn't release too much starch, which creates gummy potatoes. If you don't have a ricer, improvise with either a fine grater or food mill.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

Paring knifeFine grater or food millLarge bowlWhole boiled or baked potatoesLarge fork

Instructions

Fine Grater

1 Peel the boiled and cooled potatoes and discard the peels.

2 Insert the grater into the bowl to catch the food.

3 Hold the potato at one end and slide the other end down the length of the fine grater.

4 Increase the speed to work quickly through the potatoes.

5 Fluff the grated potatoes with a fork.

Food Mill

1 Peel the boiled and cooled potatoes and discard the peels. Some food mills will separate the peels, but you must remove the peels before milling more potatoes.

2 Insert the medium-sized disc into the mill or choose the medium-to-small-milled option to create riced potatoes.

3 Place the mill over a large bowl.

4 Cut the potatoes into quarters and insert one or two of the quarters (or more, depending on the size of your apparatus) into the bowl or shaft of the mill.

5 Exert a downward pressure as you turn the handle clockwise several times until the processed potatoes feed through the bottom.

Tips and warnings

Avoid the large-hole graters, as your potatoes will be more suitable for hash browns than the smooth texture you desire.

If you are using a food mill, turn the handle counter-clockwise to unlock the shaft or bowl and add more potatoes.

When grating potatoes, take extra care not to grate your fingers or hands.
