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 🙂
