If starch is your concern, first start with the type of potato. Red potatoes (most often boiled or roasted) are lower in starch, while the russets and yukon gold (common potatoes for mashing) will be higher in starch. For these, I would recommend peeling, cutting and submerging in water for a few hours. Afterwards, rinse and boil in fresh water, extracting even more starch from the potatoes.
