Potato & Yogurt Salad
India - Aloo Rayta

Indian food. This one is more substantial (though a little less cooling)
than the Cucumber version and can serve
also as a low calory potato salad.
|Prep - (1-1/2 hr - 20 min work)

to cover and bring to a boil. Simmer until just cooked through. Drain
- Chop the ONION and CHILI fine. Mix.
- Chop the CILANTRO small.
- Grind Coriander Seeds.
- Squeeze Lemon Juice.
- In a sauté pan heat Oil and stir in Mustard
Seeds and Cumin Seeds. When the Mustard seeds are popping
well, stir in Onion mix. Fry stirring until the onions are
translucent, then turn off the heat.
- When the Onions have cooled a bit, stir in Potatoes until
well coated with the seeds. Let cool.
- When all is cold, stir in the Salt, Cilantro,
Coriander, Yogurt and Lemon Juice.
- Potatoes: General purpose potatoes
like White Rose, or red potatoes will work fine.

not a heavy or bland one.
