Aloo Raitha

I had some left over boiled potatoes in the fridge. And I was searching for some new and easy recipes to make. That is when I remembered in the regional cuisines my fellow bloggers had made and posted raitha with aloo. I immediately searched for it and found this link in Sandhya's blog. I didn't think too much about it, just followed the recipe and this was a wonderful salad.

Aloo raitha would be a hit among kids because kids generally love potatoes. I understand that this raitha or salad definitely takes a spot in the plate in our northern cuisine (haryana / bihar). I served it with rotis and it was an instant hit. This raitha would come in handy when we are preparing dinner I guess. I added little finely chopped onions also to this raitha to bring in that crunchy feeling.


Potatoes - 2 large
Finely chopped onions - 2 tbsp
Salt - to taste
Sugar - 1 tsp
Thick curd - 1 cup
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Chaat masala / Garam masala powder - pinch


  • Boil the potatoes. I boiled the potatoes in cooker.
  • Once cooled, peel the potatoes and cut them into cubes.
  • In a bowl add the chopped onions, curd and all other spice powders. Mix well.
  • Finally add the cubed potatoes and coat the potatoes with the curd mixture.

Serve immediately so that the crunchiness of the onions is not lost.


  • The potatoes can also be cooked in microwave. Cube the potatoes and microwave high for 5 minutes.
  • Chaat masala or garam masala is optional. But if adding add only a pinch.
