Mashing potatoes with an electric mixer or blender breaks down the starch cells of the potatoes, thus making the mash sticky and gooey. This might be a reason for the potatoes to become starchy. Therefore, opt to mash potatoes, especially the ones with a high starch content, with a fork, ricer or masher, instead of an electric or high-powered source.
