Cheap Recipe for Curried Potato Salad

 

In the delicatessen section of our supermarket they often have yellow or curried-looking salads so that set my mind thinking. What if I were to beat some curry powder into the mayonnaise ..... Hmmm....

Ingredients:

1 and 1/4 kilos potatoes
3 large celery sticks, diced very small
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 cup of mayonnaise
3 teaspoons curry powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
small pinch of saffron, optional

 

Method:

Dice the potatoes and cook until just tender. Drain and cool slightly. Place in large bowl. In a small bowl thoroughly mix the mayonnaise, curry powder, turmeric and saffron (if being used).

Add this mixture to the potato along with the red onion and celery and carefully mix through, trying not to break up the potato pieces. Chill.

 

Notes:

I don't usually peel my potatoes as I feel nutrients will be lost if I do.

 

Food Facts:
