I have been thinking about creating an Indian inspired potato salad for some time now. Potatoes are such an important part of Indian cuisine that it just seemed like a natural fit. So when I learned my challenge this month was to come up with a Samosa recipe I immediately knew what I was going to do. I previously posted my recipe for Easy Baked Samosas using Patak’s Tikka Masala Sauce and I knew that would be the perfect flavour for this Samosa inspired potato salad. This is a pretty large recipe because potato salad is perfect at gatherings but you can easily cut this recipe in half to serve at a smaller family meal.
- About 8 medium potatoes
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil or butter/margarine
- 4 slices of cooked bacon
- 1 cup of cooked peas (do not overcook)
- 2 tablespoons of fresh chives OR green onion chopped
- 1 package of Patak's Tikka Masala Sauce for Two or half a jar of Tikka Masala Sauce
- 4 tablespoons of plain greek yogurt
- Cut the potatoes into bite size pieces, put in a pot and cover with water.
- Over high heat bring to a boil and cook until just tender. Do not overcook.
- Place the olive oil or butter/margarine in a large skillet over medium/high heat.
- Add the cooked potatoes and fry, tossing often, until the potatoes start to turn golden (about 2-3 minutes).
- Place the potatoes in a large bowl.
- Chop the bacon up into bite size pieces. Add to the potatoes.
- Add the chopped chives or onions.
- Add the peas.
- In a small bowl mix together the Tikka Masala sauce and the greek yogurt.
- Spoon into the potato bowl and gently toss, covering the potatoes well.
- I love this served warm but it can also be made ahead, stored in the fridge and served chilled.
