Salads are an all time favorite at my home. We just love salads and my niece, Michelle ( Michu ) is so much found of salads , that I just love to see the way she enjoys having it. This was one among the other few , that I prepared for my daughter`s birthday. while making this I was just thinking of Michu and how she licks her tweety little fingers ( she is only 2.5 yrs old !!!) and her content happy smile. Oh! the thought itself made me prompt to get it done to the best.
This salad is easy and definitely a winner. With just little ingredients, you get a very simple salad that is refreshing and tasty. I made in a large batch as my brother-in-law and brother are also salad lovers to the core. So I knew this would get over, in a jiffy. You can make as per your requirement.
Servings – 4-5
Potatoes – 2 kgs
Chicken broth – 2 cans ( I used the Maggie Chicken broth cubes to prepare the broth)
Garlic – 2 cloves
Yogurt – 2 cups
All herbs powder – 1 tbsp ( I used the Keya brand that we get in supermarkets here)
Mayonnaise – 1- 2 cups
Fresh Cream – 1/2 cup
Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Coriander – a bunch finely chopped
Peanuts – for garnish
. Peel the potatoes, clean and cut them length wise.
. In a deep bottom vessel, make the chicken broth. For the Maggie cubes, in 1 litre of water, just add the two cubes that is provided in the packet. and boil. You get the broth.
. To this broth, add the garlic and cook the potatoes in this broth. Add a pinch of salt too.
. Once the potatoes are soft, drain them and keep them aside. Spread them so that they don`t get sticky and mashed.
. In another bowl, mix all the other ingredients, except the peanuts and a little coriander leaves, to make a great salad dressing.
. When the potatoes are cooled, mix it with the dressing and garnish with coriander and peanuts. ( I used spicy peanuts for more punch).
. Refrigerate for more than 12 hours and serve chilled.
A lovely chilled salad for any time of the day and perfect for any combinations, in any weather.
