This Indian-inspired potato salad has all you need to spice up your midweek meals. Charlotte potatoes are roasted in fragrant spices until gorgeously golden and mixed together with strips of juicy carrot, slices of cucumber and fresh rocket. Topping with shards of poppadom and a sweet-sharp mango dressing brings even more authentic flavour to this simple salad.

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the potatoes for 15 minutes. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and allow to steam dry for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan, then add the ground coriander, ground cumin and chilli and cook for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant. Add the drained potatoes and crush them gently to flatten. Cook the potatoes on a medium-high heat for 5 minutes, turning once until golden and crispy.
  3. Once the potatoes are cooked, stir through the coriander and spring onions and mix well to combine. Squeeze over the lime juice, mix the potatoes together with the rocket, cucumber and carrot, and sprinkle over the sesame seeds and poppadom pieces. Combine the mango chutney and lemon together in a bowl and drizzle over the salad. Serve with lime wedges on the side.
