Warm Potato Salad

A delightful change from the usual veggie salad.

I generally make this salad, when we are on our not so strict diets..

Even though this salad has some mayo in it...one can always avoid it (or like me cheat with 97% fat free mayo)...and make it healthier..but this is our favorite version...so here it is for all of you..

Have it with some soup and its a meal in itself..:)

Level: Easy
Serves: 4 to 5 people
Adapted from: Book: Salad by Swapnali Sheteye

8 medium potatoes, boiled, peeled, diced
1 large bell pepper, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 green chilly, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon, or as per taste
1 tblsp olive oil/salad oil
Sprigs of coriander, chopped
1 tsp sugar
3 tblsp mayonaise
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Tobasco to taste

Step 1 - Take a wok like vessel. Heat olive oil in it and saute the green chilly, bell pepper and onion till they are half done..you need them to be slightly crunchy.

Step 2 - Turn off heat.

Step 3 - Add in diced potatoes, salt, pepper, tobasco, sugar. Toss around well.

Step 4 - Add in mayonaise and coriander. Toss around again.

Serve warm...obviously...as the name suggests..

You can also serve this with some crispy garlic bread..

Chop the potatoes finer...or mash them..you have a sandwich spread/filling ready.

Truly filling !

Hope you enjoy  making this one. Do let me know how it turns out.

Rack your brains:
Potatoes are an excellent source of potassium and vitamin C and a source of fibre and iron.
Potatoes are not fattenning by themselves. Its what you put on it that adds calories.
