When it’s hot outside there’s nothing like a cold potato salad for dinner. This Indian Potato Salad is a whole meal in itself. In addition to Idaho® Potatoes and flavorful Indian spices, it has carrots, peas, and chickpeas. All you need to add is an icy cold glass of tea. 

Don't have a instant pot/pressure cooker – not to worry. There's stovetop preps included too!


Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker Ingredients:*
Sauté Ingredients:
Cilantro-Mint Chutney Ingredients:


  1. Place the potatoes, water, and carrots into your Instant Pot and cook on manual, high pressure, for 10 minutes. 
  2. Manually release the pressure and remove the lid. Add the peas, replace the lid and cook on manual, low pressure, for 0 minutes. Yes, I really mean zero minutes.
  3. Once it's done, which will be a few minutes since it will need time to come back up to pressure, release the pressure manually. 
  4. Pour everything into a colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Set aside.
  5. Heat the oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Once hot add the cumin seeds, coriander seeds, and mustard seeds and saute until they become fragrant about 2 minutes.
  6. Lower the heat and add the garam masala and the minced garlic. Saute 1 minute more. Remove from heat and let cool.
  7. Add all the cilantro-mint chutney ingredients to a small food processor and pulse until smooth.
  8. In a large mixing bowl add the cooled vegetables, the cooled sauteed oil spice mixture, and the chutney and mix well.
  9. You can serve it as is, or chill for at least an hour to get it nice and cold. Enjoy!

*Note: If you don’t have an instant pot/pressure cooker, you can still make this delicious salad. Just cook the potatoes and carrots in a pot on your stove over medium heat until they are easily pierced with a fork. Remove from heat and add peas, cover and let sit for about 5 minutes, or until the peas are cooked. Then start on step 4 above.
