This is a salad – err actually it is a raitha with a difference. If you are sick of the usual onion or cucumber raitha to go with your biriyani or pulav, you will like this recipe.
This bright and fresh potato salad is creamy due to the addition of mayonnaise to the yogurt dressing and it is tangy due to the added lemon juice and lemon zest. Add a little crunch from the chopped red onions and cilantro and you have the perfect accompaniment for rice dishes or even roti.
