Aloo Ko Achar (Potato Salad)
A quick, easy and flavorful salad. I added a bit chopped red onion, and used lemon juice instead of lime juice, and it was very tasty. Next time I will use pickled jalapeno, which I think will make the salad taste even better.
small size if possible
optional, seeded and sliced into long strips

Boil potatoes in jackets. When done, peel and cut into small pieces.
In non-metalic bowl bowl, combine potatoes, tumeric, salt, ground sesame seeds, lime juice, half of the green coriander and water and mix thoroughly.
In a small pan heat mustard oil until hot; add cumin seeds and red chilies. Fry them until brown and then add jalepeno pepper. Let it cook a minute or so.
Pour it over potatoes in the bowl and mix them thoroughly; garnish with remaining green coriander leaves.
