Fried Eye says- Which is the most common and also the favorite vegetable of all? You are right! It is the potato. Nothing can beat the potato as an instant-perk-up ingredient and also as a food enhancer. Its great to experiment with it , with as simple as aloo mash to the complex and intricate preparations like Stuffed aloo and Kashmiri Aloo Dam. Today we bring before you two recipes before you which are simple in the preparation but quite high on the taste buds. Nikki Thapa shares with us these two recipes.

Potato salad


  1. 5 medium size boiled potatoes refrigerated over night
  2. 2 boiled eggs
  3. 1 small cucumber finely diced
  4. Fresh cream 4 large spoon
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Pepper to taste


Grate boiled potatoes and eggs. Put all the ingredients into one bowl and mix it (toss it) with the help of fork. Do not use spoon because it will smash the grated potatoes and eggs. Peel the cucumber and get rid of fleshy middle part and dice it into thumb nail size. Do not grate cucumber because that will release excess water and spoil the taste of salad.

(*note: diced carrot can also be used. Mayonnaise can be used as alternative to fresh cream)


Baked Potato salad


  1. 6 medium sized potatoes, flaked
  2. Fresh cream, 6 large spoon
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Pepper to taste
  5. Grated cheese
  6. Salted butter, 1 spoon



Put cream, butter, salt and pepper into flaked potatoes and mix it well. Grease the oven pan with butter and pour the mixture into it. Sprinkle the grated cheese over potato cream mixture.

Preheat oven at 180 degree centigrade for 15 minutes, and bake the salad for 80 minutes at the same temperature.
