It’s potatoes again

Nice creamy potato salad is a hit at any party. Kids and adults love potatoes and the salad goes well with hot crispy pizzas. I am already drooling…. not for the salad but for the pizzas! To make it an absolute veggie salad I do not use mayonnaise or salad cream. Combining thick yogurt and fresh cream makes this salad refreshing.

4 TO 6 Servings

500g baby potatoes
3½ tsps salt
1 cup thick yogurt or ½ cup thick yogurt and ½ cup fresh double cream
3 tbsps chopped fresh dill (suva bhaji)
2 tbsps roasted sesame seeds (tal)
8 to 10 chopped walnuts
½ to 1 tsp sugar
½ tsp green chilli paste

  1. Wash and put the potatoes in a pan. Cover it with enough water. Add 3 tsps of salt and boil the potatoes till they are done. 
  2. Drain out the water and let the potatoes cool down completely.
  3. Peel them if you like. If some of them are big cut into half. You want bite size potatoes.
  4. Mix remaining salt, sugar, dill, cream and green chilli paste into the yogurt.
  5. Pour the yogurt over the potatoes. Mix it well and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes till it gets chilled.
  6. Add sesame seeds and walnuts just before serving.
Tips :
  1. Use normal potatoes if you don’t get baby potatoes. Peel and cube them when they are cold.
  2. Add mint or fresh coriander instead of dill.
  3. Add ¼ tsp garlic paste instead of chilli paste.
  4. Mix in a few chopped seedless grapes or pomegranate seeds.

    this looks so nice, creamy potato salad. For a potato lover this is such a drooling share ! Use of thick yogurt and fresh cream is a lovely alternative for mayo

      Thank you so much Sasmita…since I’m not a big fan of mayo I like to use thick yogurt and cream.
