Spicy Roasted Potato Salad – USPB

Potato salad never gets old especially when paired with bright flavors of cumin, ginger, turmeric, cucumber and cilantro. Yum! Here we’ve roasted the potatoes to deepen the flavor. While the oven is hot, add chicken breasts to the pan to make a complete meal.

Servings: 6

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 pounds Russet potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cucumber, peel partly removed in strips, seeded and sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/2 cup low-fat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons  seeded, finely chopped serrano chiles


In large sauté pan, heat oil. Add cumin seed, mustard seed, ginger, chili flakes and turmeric; sizzle about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add potatoes and salt, toss to coat potatoes with spices.

Transfer potatoes to sheet pan; roast in 400 degree oven about 30 minutes or until potatoes are golden and tender, stirring occasionally to brown potatoes evenly. In large bowl, combine potatoes with remaining ingredients. Serve warm or cold.

For a complete meal: Add 3/4 pound chicken breast strips to baking pan with potatoes. Cook in oven as directed.
