Peel and cube the potatoes and cook them in water till soft.
Drain and keep aside.
In a stand mixer with paddle attachment, add the boiled potatoes, red curry paste, salt and pepper and let it mix well.
Once most of the potatoes are mashed, add the coconut milk and some of the basil and let it mix in.
Top the remaining basil as a garnish once the mashed potatoes are moved to a serving bowl.
