For 6 helpings:
500gr/1 lb New Potatoes, boiled and cut into large pieces (whether you peel these or not is up to you and the quality of the potatoes)
400gr/15 fl oz Low Fat Yoghurt
1 level teaspoon Cumin Seeds
2-3 Spring Onions - washed, trimmed & finely-chopped
½ to 1 Mild Chili – deseeded and finely-chopped (depending on how subtle you like your chilli)
A few sprigs of fresh Coriander, finely-chopped including the stalks, but keeping a good sprig back for decoration
A sprinkling of Ground Cumin – to decorate
1. Dry roast the cumin seeds in a frying pan over a low heat, until you smell their aroma. Remove them from the heat.
2. Mix all the other ingredients together, except the ground cumin.
Serve sprinkled with a little ground cumin and perhaps decorated with the remaining sprig of coriander.
