Yield: 12 servings


4 to 6 large white potatoes

4 teaspoons curry powder

4 teaspoons mustard seeds

1 tablespoon coriander seeds

2 teaspoons turmeric

1 cup frozen peas

3/4 cups mayonnaise

3/4 cups sour cream

Kakdi Koshimbir (Cucumber Salad)

Yield: 4 servings


4 small Persian cucumbers or 1 ½ medium English cucumbers

1 tablespoon ghee

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

1 small green chili, cut in half lengthwise

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ cup roasted peanuts, chopped

2 tablespoon chopped cilantro


  1. Slice the cucumbers in half lengthwise. If using English cucumbers, use a small spoon to scoop out the seeds. Slice each cucumber half into 1/4” slices and add to a medium bowl.

  2. In a small saucepan or fry pan over medium heat, add the ghee. Lightly crush the cumin seeds in the palm of your hand and add to the hot ghee. Cook the seeds for about 30 seconds until they begin to sizzle. Add the green chili and cook for another 30 seconds.

  3. Pour the cumin-ghee mixture over the cucumbers and stir. Add in the salt, sugar, peanuts and cilantro. Mix well and serve immediately.

  4. If not serving immediately, don't add the salt and sugar. It will draw out too much water from the cucumbers. Add just before serving. Remove the chili if desired before serving.
