  • 6 medium potatoes about 2 pounds
  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • 1 small red onion chopped (about 2/3 cup)
  • 1 serrano chili chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ginger grated

  • 2 tsp cumin dry roasted and roughly ground
  • 2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • big handful of chopped cilantro


  • Peel the potatoes and toss them into a large pot. Fill the pot with enough water to cover the potatoes. Turn on the heat to high and let water come to a boil. When it boils, turn the heat down to medium and let cook for about 20 to 25 minutes until the potatoes are cooked through. Drain and let cool a few minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooling, measure out the yogurt into a large bowl. Add the ginger and salt. Stir making sure the ginger is mixed well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • Once the potatoes have cooled, cut them into 1/2 inch cubes and mix into the yogurt mixture.


This makes a big batch that is good for parties and potlucks
