To make without mustard oil: Use a neutral oil and add 1/2 tsp ground mustard and mix in.
Or heat 1 tsp neutral oil in a skillet over medium heat. When hot, add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp mustard seeds and wait until they start to pop. Drizzle the tempered oil and seeds into the mashed potatoes. For variation, use cumin seeds to temper the oil.
