Indian potato chutney

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Waxy variety potatoes
4 \N Green chili peppers
½ teaspoon Salt
\N \N Pepper
1 teaspoon Cumin seed
1 \N Lemon; seeded and juiced
½ cup Plain lowfat yogurt

A chutney (chatni) is a hot spicy relish that often contains fruit but doesn't have to. One local restaurant serves minced chile peppers with yogurt: it too is a chutney. Vegetables, like this one, make an unusual relish for a vegetable or meat curry dish.

1. Cook the unpeeled potatoes in salted water. Drain, peel, and dice.

Finely dice the chilies, and mix the two together in a sering dish. Season, sprinkle on cumin seeds (warmed, optional). Pour on the lemon juice. Set aside for 10 minutes. Carefully stir in the yogurt. Chill.

2. Serve chilled with any curry dish.

Try new potatoes, red potatoes, fingerlings, yukon golds, etc.
