Indian Summer Salad

This recipe wasn't originally a salad, but samosas. I like Indian food and so does my mom, so we looked up a recipe for Indian samosas.  We got the local garlic, onions, potatoes, etc., and began to cook.  The filling for the most part was pretty easy but when it came to the wrapping it was just to hard.  Our family tasted the filling and loved it, so we made it a salad.  This salad is a spicy and delicious mix of peas and potatoes with a little Indian zing. It's perfect for the summer, so enjoy eat!

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil  
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander seeds cup 
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, mince 
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced  
  • 2 1/2 cup yellow onions, chopped  
  • 2 hot green chile peppers, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tbl fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric  
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne  
  • ½ cup green peas, blanched
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice  
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled, cut into ½ inch dice, and boiled until just tender

  1.  In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat.  Add the coriander seeds and cook, stirring, for 10 seconds. Add the onions and ginger, and cook, stirring, until starting to caramelize. 
  2. Add the garlic, chile peppers, salt, turmeric, and cayenne, and cook, stirring, until fragrant. Add the potatoes and cook, stirring until potatoes color and become dry. Add the peas and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
