    Delish! Hubby loved it to. Also good at room temperature. I used light sour cream and mixed it with the water before adding to the pan. I used dried fenugreek leaves (methi instead of the dried curry leaves. I think the dried fenugreek leaves hold their flavor better than dried curry leaves. This will be going into my "tried & true" recipes folder.

    This is an excellent dish with great flavor. I didn't have tomatoes so used canned diced tomatoes and they worked fine. It seemed to take a lot longer for the potatoes to cook than the recipe said and I don't think I cut them too large. However, I didn't use red potatoes so maybe that's why. Anyway, it was well worth the wait and its great served with rice.

    Simply delicioso!! I love potato salad and I love Indian food - so when I saw this on the Spice Goddess, I had to try it. I followed the recipe exactly. The aroma while it was cooking was incredible and the taste - oh so good!!! this dish is packed full of flavor and to top it off - EASY to make!! What a wonderful change up to regular potato salad and it had that wonderful authentic taste of Indian food that I love.
