Drain the potatoes and begin to peel them while they are still hot, help yourself with a small knife so as not to burn yourself. Finally, crush them immediately in a container: when the potatoes are hot, they are more easily discarded and will not present lumps. In the meantime cut the mozzarella into cubes and place it in a colander to squeeze it, in this way it will drain excess whey. You can alternatively, squeeze it with the help of a clean cloth.
