  • 3/4 kg potatoes, (new or regular potatoes)
  • 1 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 1 tbsp flour, (heaping tbsp)
  • 1/3 cup double cream
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 bunch fresh dill leaves, chopped roughly
  • salt and pepper, for seasoning
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)


  • In a medium to large pot, boil potatoes until tender. After removing the water, place the pot back to the heat for 2 to 3 minutes to remove additional moisture from the cooked potatoes. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add flour. Mix until flour has turned into a soft paste.
  • Add cream. Whisk to avoid getting clumps.
  • Slowly add milk, continue whisking. Simmer for around 5 minutes. 
  • Season with salt and pepper. Add nutmeg, if desired. 
  • Cream mixture would be slightly thicker now. Mix with spatula or wooden spoon, scraping the sides of the pan and making sure that there are no lumps in the cream.
  • Pour cream mixture to cooked potatoes. Mix.
  • Add chopped dill. Mix to combine properly. (Try to coat each potato with cream and dill.)
  • Serve.



  • If you can find waxy types of potatoes, then use those for this recipe.
  • Cut the pototoes in the same size, to make sure they all cook at the same time.
