Potato Salad with Pomegranate Seeds
When I had a small dinner gathering quite sometime ago with a few relatives, I made this Salad as first it was a pretty sight & second it was easy to prepare. I was going more for the colourful presentation that it would bring to the rest of the food and in terms of taste, it was not very spectular but I did love biting into the Pomegranate seed as the Pomegranta that I bought was from Pakistan and it was sweet. Sometimes we need a little show piece to bring some colour to the rest of the food on displayed.
300 gm Potatoes
1/2 cup fresh Pomegranate seeds Or Red Grapes
1 teasp Cumin seeds/Jintan Putih
1 big Onion
1 Tabsp Lemon juice
*Chaat Masala to taste OR Salt to taste
Mint leaves for garnishing
a) Make one small slit around each Potato then boil same. It is slightly easier to peel the skin off after they have been boiled;
b) One imp thing to note is that you have to peel the Potato while it is hot as it is easier for the skin to come off;
c) *Chaat Masala is a spice mix & the one I tasted had salt in it too. If you dont have same just add Salt.
Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia
