Potato Salad

Who doesn’t love the potato salad served as a side at home or in restaurants?    We all tend to have huge helpings at the eat as much as you like buffets!!  However, a lot of them have mayonnaise and can taste a bit eggy.    This simple and versatile recipe is easy can be made vegan by swapping the yogurt.  This salad can be made and kept ready in the fridge  to serve as a side with any dish.

Ingredients for 6 servings

  • 6 small boiled potatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1  small onion
  • 2 small chilies
  • ½ cup plain yogurt (vegans can use soya yogurt)
  • ½ tsp of dhana jeeru ( coriander and cumin powder)
  • few sprigs of herbs – coriander or rosemary or parsley (whatever is available)


  1. Chop the boiled potatoes in chunks and transfer to a mixing bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.

2. Grate the onion and cut the chilies into small slices and add to the boiled potatoes.


3.  In a second mixing bowl, add the yogurt and the remaining slices.  Save some herbs for garnishing, Mix the yogurt and taste.  Season to your taste.

4.  Add the yogurt mixture to the boiled potatoes and mix.  Add more yogurt if needed.

5.  Garnish and serve cold with any dish.


Vegan version with plain soya version tasted great too. The soya yogurt is thinner but it still makes a lovely vegan potato salad.

6.  If you do have any leftover potato salad, enjoy it as a chaat topped  with some crispy sev noodles and tamarind sauce.  I used these
