Tangy Potato Veggie Salad

Oindrilla (Jia) is a little fussy about taste and has indicated she does not like the mayonnaise in salads and neither does she like the cheesy versions. I presume that she is not very keen to eat veggies at all and that too raw as she needs to exercise her jaws and she is a little of a lazy bone when it comes to eating!! So tried this version of a salad (a little similar to aloo kabli - an extremely popular bengali road side snack).

You will need:
A large sized potato, boiled and beeled
A medium / small onion chopped
Beans - a small bunch, chopped
Capsicum - a small one, chopped (small to medium pieces)
Carrots - thin slivers
Green Peas - a handful
Corriander leaves - chopped
Lemon juice - 1 tsp
Chat Masala (if available)

Making it:
  1. Take the carrots, beans, capsicum, onion in a small microwave proof bowl. Add a little salt and water. Cook it on high heat for about 2 mins. (In case you are averse to using a microwave, boil water in a pan, drop the veggies (mentioned above) in the pan and let it boil for about 2 mins). Add the peas and allow it to stand for about 2 mins. Drain the water
  2. Take a mixing bowl. Add potatoes, the boiled veggies, salt, pepper and lime juice. Toss it nicely.
  3. Add ketchup, chat masala and corriander leaves and toss again.
  4. SERVE!


I do a similar thing though not with the chat masala, but a dollop of butter, salt and pepper. Should try the chat masala thing!
