This recipe for Indian potatoes transports the usual more subtle flavours of a potato salad to a whole new spicy level. Although usually eaten cold, these Indian potatoes work well served either piping hot or at room temperature too.
This vibrant potato dish is spiced with turmeric, cumin and mustard seeds and works so well when served with a cooling raita or yoghurt. This potato salad is delicious on its own, or can also be served with turmeric chicken to make it a more substantial meal.
