This tasted wonderful but I'm not sure about the process. I think 25 minutes is far too long to cook the potatoes if you want them to hold their shape, as the recipe suggests. By the time I evaporated the water they'd turned to mush and I hardly stirred them at all. Also, it took at least 15 minutes to evaporate the water. I think next time I'd boil them covered for no more than 10 minutes and then take off the cover. The end result had a great taste though, just a texture more like mashed potatoes, which I wasn't expecting from the directions.
