Potato Raita

Potato is one of the most beloved vegetables in the world. They say ‘die Deutschen essen gern Kartoffel’ (The Germans eat potatoes gladly) but we Indians are not behind. Indians also have a super craze for potato. Due to its bland taste potato gels with every ingredient and especially during observing fast it is considered very important.

I love this recipe totally. A great change from the normal raitas or salads that we have generally. It’s very easy and very quick to prepare.

Have a go at it.

Ingredients –

Potatoes (boiled) – 3 medium sized
Ghee/ clarifies butter – 1 tablespoon
Cumin seeds – 1 teaspoon
Plain Curds (unsweetened) – 1 cup
Green chilies (chopped) – 1 teaspoon
Salt – to taste
Coriander leaves (chopped) – ½ teaspoon

Procedure –

  • Peel the boiled potatoes and then cut them into cubes sizes.
  • In a pan heat the ghee and add the cumin seeds. Once the cumin seeds crackle add the green chilies.
  • In a bowl transfer the potatoes, curds, salt and pour the tempering over it. Mix well.
  • Garnish with chopped corianders and serve as a salad dish.

Tips –
Exclude the coriander as some people do not eat coriander during fast.
You may also try making this salad with sweet potatoes instead of normal potatoes.

I would love to hear from you. Do comment.
