Well, you will need a knife for this and will surely take time, and that is exactly what this trick will address.

Re: Peeling the cooked potato..................

I prefer peeling before boiling.. takes me less than 2 minutes to peel a few potatoes. Good technique though.. I will show off this one at the right time.

Re: Peeling the cooked potato..................

I dont think the trick will work all the time or all the potatoes or all degrees of boiling. Plus one will be wasting a bucket full ice.
She does keep repeating Idaho potato, though she also says it will work on any potato. Another issue is cutting a boiled potato is difficult once it cools down.

Re: Peeling the cooked potato..................

Those are huge potatoes.. about 200gms each. Anyway, for bigger potatoes, it is always advisable to cut them in half or so before boiling, to ensure even cooking.

PS : A similar thing is also used for boiled eggs. Better to peel them immediately after boiling to prevent blue ring formation. I peel the hot eggs in a patili of water.

Re: Peeling the cooked potato..................

potato ke liye itna load??
Peel before cut and boil....takes couple of mins.
Plus this technique requires trial and error, also I use the small red potatoes and i doubt this trick will come in use.
instead of ice water, I am sure cold water will work too. Just make sure the potato is fully immersed in cold water.

Cold water works... I have seen a similar video before, there cold water was used.

Re: Peeling the cooked potato..................

Ever since I remember my mother has been doing the same to peel potatoes. She lacerates them slightly, boils them and keep them in normal water for a while and later just slides the peel over.

You need not use ice cold water, that is very energy inefficient (to waste ice), for something so trivial as potato peeling. It won't take much time for the potatoes to cool in normal water, moreover you need only the surface to cool.

Re: Peeling the cooked potato..................

And this is only ideal for wet cooking.

When you want a nice potato fry and want the fry to come crispy, you can't boil the potatoes. You would still need your peeler.

By the way, my mother does the same with Colacasia root (Arbi) too..

Ice don't cost much here in US when you have ice-maker built in your refrigerator.

Where in the video did you see about "frying" potato?
