I love potato salad. To me it’s not just a side for picnics, it’s a meal. Through the school year, I routinely make potato salad to cover school and work lunches. So when Patak’s asked me to try a recipe from their amazing online cookbook Smoke & Spice, I jumped at the opportunity to make their Samosa Inspired Potato Salad. To me, it’s a Creamy Curry Potato Salad with Sweet Peas and the taste is absolutely mind-blowing.
You’ll love the sweet and mildly spicy taste of this salad and while I think it’s perfect on it’s own, it’s also a perfect side for chicken, fish or beef off the grill.
Once again Patak’s has shocked me with the versatility of their sauces and pastes. A year ago when I first stepped into this role as a Patak’s Mom Brand Ambassador I couldn’t have imagined how many ways I would mix a little India into my life. From wraps to pizza and now this Curry Potato Salad, I have become deliciously aware of how many ways Indian flavours can be mixed with traditional dishes to create a whole new taste experience.
Now at the end of our term, I’m a little sad to be moving on from our Patak’s partnership, it’s been such a great year working with a really great company. Thank you to Patak’s for including me on this journey to Mix in a Little India, you can be sure I’ll continue to do just that.
Curry Potato Salad with Sweet Peas
- 5 tbsps Patak's Mild Curry Paste
- 5 tbsp mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp paprika
- 10 medium Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and quartered
- 2 cups of onions chopped fine
- 2 cups of frozen sweet peas
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
Boil potatoes in a medium-sized pot. When the potatoes are tender, drain and cut into quarters. Place them aside in a mixing bowl to cool.
Add the oil to a medium-high heat pan and then add the onion, slowing adding in the Patak's Mild Curry Paste releasing the full flavours and aroma of the paste.
Add the sweet peas after five minutes and let cook for three minutes or until peas are cooked through. Remove from the heat and let the paste mixture cool.
Mix the paste mixture with the mayonnaise, paprika, and the potatoes and serve at room temperature or chilled.
