AlooAnaarRaita_Featured1
Pomegranate or Anaar is in season. The unusual combination of pomegranate and boiled fried potato with yogurt makes a delicious and hearty side dish with your meal. Its refreshing and full of flavour. I am sure once you taste it you will want it more and more. I tried it for the first time for a dinner party at our place. It was a huge success. The enchanting colors makes it even more inviting.

Directions:

1. Boil potatoes and peel their skin. Cut them in cubes and fry them with little oil in the pan.

2. Fry them till they get a slight golden colour. Remove them on a paper towel to absorb extra oil. Set aside to cool down.

3. In a bowl whisk some yogurt, so that no lumps remain and add little milk to give it a smooth liquid texture. Also milk will reduce the thickness of yogurt.
