Warm Indian Potato Salad
A few more weeks of August left- might as well take advantage of the grilling season and make some delicious sides! Potato salad is always a winner- this one is a bit different with Indian flavors…
- 1 pound yellow potatoes boiled and cut in 2 inch pieces
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 3 scallions chopped
- 1 serrano chili deseeded and chopped
- 1 lemon juiced
- 2 teaspoons garam masala
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Salt to taste
- ½ cup chopped cilantro
In a wide skillet heat the olive oil and add the mustard and cumin seeds. Add the chopped potatoes once the spices begin to sizzle. Saute on high heat to brown the potatoes about 10 minutes. Once the potatoes are golden brown add the scallions and the serrano chili. Then add the lemon juice, cayenne pepper, garam masala and salt. Garnish with the cilantro.
Monica,I just wanted to let you know that I made the potato salad and it came out just perfect. I only had the regular mustard seeds and it didn’t seem to matter. I even had leftover for the next day to enjoy.
