I think you mean hutspot.
It's fairly easy to make once you get the proportions right. Imagine you proportion the three main ingredients into four equal parts. Then you would need two parts of crumbly potatoes to one part of carrots (winterwortel, that is the big kind you get in winter, rather than the smaller ' bospeen' ) and one part of onions.
Slice and dice the potatoes in large chunks, add onions sliced in rings in a large (soup)pan. Add water so it just covers the lot and add salt. Then cook and leave to cook untill the potatoes are soft (depending on the variety of potato about 20 minutes). You can add a sausage (rookworst) for the last ten minutes or so.
Then dispose of the water and mash the lot. You may want to add a bit of milk and butter to make it creamier. Add salt, pepper and mace to taste.
If you cooked the sausage you get that out of the pan first, slice into large pieces and add later.
We like it with a bit of gravy that we put in a little whole in the middle of a heap of hutspot on our plate.
