Aloo Raita

Mahasrashtrain thali always calls for a salad – koshimbir. But the lazy that I am,  this side dish has taken a back seat. I tend to prepare these only when I’ve family or friends visiting us. And whenever I prepare salads, I plan to prepare them regularly but sadly I always forget. I assembled this simple yet tasty raita on one such occasion, we loved it and yeah I’ve prepared this number of times from then.


I just had a leftover boiled potato in my refrigerator, and experimented this salad, it came out quite well.

You Need :

  • Potato: 1 – boiled, peeled and cubed
  • Red chilli powder: 1 tsp
  • Chaat Masala : 1tsp
  • Yogurt: 1/2 cup
  • Cumin Powder : 1/2 tsp
  • Black Pepper: 1/2 tsp
  • Sugar to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Coriander leaves - garnishing

You Do:

  1. Mix everything in Red with some salt and keep aside.
  2. Beat the curd to make a thin paste, mix everything in Blue.
  3. Mix both step 2 and 1, together.
  4. Garnish with coriander leaves.


Serve as a side dish with Rice or Pulao. Would go well with rotis too.
