Minty potato raita/aloo raitha/pachadi

           I try to make it a point to include salads /raw vegetables in our diet. Mostly it is carrots and cucumbers. But once in a while I  make raitas or yogurt based salads. I had tasted potato salads at some parties along with starters and chaats and I had always loved the taste and wanted to make them at home. Mints and potato was a interesting combination. I served this with some pulao. But I love raitas with rotis too.
minty potato raita
Potato-2 big
Curd/yogurt-2 cups
Mint leaves- few leaves chopped fine
Red chilly powder-1/2tsp
Salt to taste
Chat powder-1tsp

    Cook the potatoes in pressure cooker till they turn very soft. Cut them to small pieces and place it in a bowl. Add the mint leaves along with red chilly powder and salt. Beat the curd with a spatula. Pour the curd in the potato mixture. Combine everything together. Sprinkle some chaat powder when you serve.

very different raita. I have had potato, mint and yoghurt combination in the aloo dahi chaat. So I can bet on this recipe to be very delicious. I will remember this raita when I invite friends next time!

I have never tried using aloo in a raita. Must say that you have made it sound delicious.
