Potato pomegranate salad recipe – from the time I had seen this aloo anardana salad recipe in jigg kalra’s cookbook “Prashad – cooking with Indian masters” i wanted to try it. finally gave a try and this has become a most loved and wanted potato salad at home.

aloo anardana salad

This salad is basically made from two ingredients: Aloo – potatoes and Anardana – pomegranate… Spiced with tangy Indian spices.

The original recipe has some Chana dal (bengal gram) also added, but I skipped adding these lentils. This salad is tart in taste due to lemon juice. And also has a sweet taste due to the pomegranate arils.

So instead of salad, I feel this recipe can also be called as Aloo anardana chaat. it is tart, sweet and tangy except spicy. A few qualities found in a chaat. And the salad tasted so much like chaat 🙂

If you love potatoes and pomegranate, then do give this potato pomegranate salad or chaat a try. You can also serve it as a side dish with dal rice or veg pulao or veg biryani or roti-sabzi combo.

You just need basic veggies like onion & tomatoes along with some Indian spice powders like Chaat masala and cumin powder. this salad can be served warm or cold. They make excellent starters as well.
