Potatoes are known as Energy food..
I am sharing 2 refreshing and tasty recipes made with Boiled Potatoes. Both the recipes are very refreshing and are ideal to be served during hot summer months. they go well with any kind of food. They can also be served as individual dishes like snacks..
Boiled Potatoes 3-4
Yogurt 1 large cup
Chopped Coriander leaves
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cut the potatoes into fair sized pieces. Heat some oil in a pan and add the cummin( Jeera) seeds.A
When the seeds are fried add the chopped onions and fry for while. Add turmeric powder and mix well. Add the potatoes and toss. Add salt and the coriander leaves and mix well. Take the potatoes off the stove and cool.
Whip the yoghurt with salt and pepper and when the potatoes are cool, arrange them on a shallow plate and pour the yogurt over the potatoe pieces and sprinkle some fresh coriander leaves and more pepper if needed. This is an excellent dish to be served on a hot summer’s day. Goes well as a side dish with Baked Fish and Pulaos or Fried rice.
Potato Salad – 2
Potatoes 3 boiled and cut into small pieces
Carrot 1 grated
Capcicum 1 finely sliced
Tomato 1 finely sliced
Handful of peanut lightly toasted
