Aloo Ka Raita Recipe

One another simple side dish from Mughlai cuisine. Aloo raita is different and very filling. This is a refreshing Indian recipe.
This goes great for rice or pulao (with mild flavors) or even rotis.

You need:
Yoghurt, whisked - 1 cup
Potatoes - 2 boiled, peeled, cooled, diced
chopped coriander leaves - a handful
Mint leaves - 1 tsp chopped finely
Green chilli, deseeded, chopped fine
roasted ground cumin seeds
red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
chaat masala - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Salt to taste
Oil to saute (1 tsp approx)

In a skillet, add a tsp oil. Once hot add the potatoes. Along with it add the salt, red chilli powder, cumin powder, green chillies. Saute for a while and add this to the curd (yoghurt) and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning. Add the coriander leaves and mint leaves. Mix well.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with roasted cumin powder and chat masala. Refrigerate until required .
I prepared the raita for my paneer peas pulao. Sundar couldn't say which was better to the other. You can have them for your plain parathas too!

I'm sending this for Radhika's Let's cook series: Mughlai Cuisine.
