Baby Potato Salad

I discovered baby potatoes are delicious recently.My DH used to always keep me away from them saying "they are so tiny, and they'll take ages to peel" and i used to run towards the normal potatoes.I couldn't resist the temptation for too long.LM loves these tiny potatoes roasted :) more reason to buy baby potatoes.

My DH tasted this and said "anything in yogurt tastes good!" .Which is why i decided to try it salad/raita in the first place!Trust me its good.

The creamy yogurt brings out the taste and spices used to toss the baby potatoes.

This is how i made it...

You need
Baby potatoes 15 nos
Yogurt/curd 1 cup
Oil 2 tsp
Cumin seeds 1 tsp(optional)
Turmeric powder/haldi 1/4 tsp(optional)
Red chilli powder 1 tsp(optional)
Chaat masala a generous sprinkling
Salt to taste

  • Pressure the baby potatoes for about 5 minutes and turn off the cooker.Once the pressure has cooled down, pop the potatoes in a pot of cold water and peel them.
  • Heat oil in a pan, sprinkle the cumin seeds once they crackle add the peeled potatoes (whole or chopped into quarters)
  • Add the spices - chilli powder,haldi and salt and toss the potatoes until they are soft.

  • In a serving bowl, mix the yogurt/curd with salt to taste(the potatoes have salt to so be careful) and chaat masala.
  • Mix the sauteed potatoes to this curd mix.
  • Sprinkle some chilli powder and chaat masala.

  • Serve spicy potato raita with parathas or indian breads :)
