1. Combine the sweet potato and baking potatoes in a large pot, add water to cover, and bring to a boil. Boil until tender, about 30 minutes. Five minutes before the potatoes are done, add the corn.

2. Drain the potatoes and corn and transfer the potatoes to a large bowl. Set the corn aside to cool slightly, and mash the potatoes with a fork. Cut the corn kernels from the cobs, and fold into the potatoes.

3. Combine the coconut milk, olive oil, and spiced butter in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir the flavored coconut milk into the mashed potatoes, then add the garam masala and salt and mix well.
