Cumin potato salad with chorizo – This potato salad is a new and delicious twist of a tradition inherited from my cruise ship life.  New potatoes boiled in their skin, then sliced are accented by bits of chorizo, a smoked Spanish sausage available in any super markets. It’s the Indian spices, potatoes, rocket leaves and chorizo with its subtle smokiness that makes this potato salad so distinctive.



Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves: 4

Ingredients to prepare Cumin potato salad with chorizo :

  • 800 grams new potatoes
  • Vegetable oil 50 grams
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • Sea salt flakes to taste
  • 2 red onions sliced into rings
  • 150 gram sliced chorizo
  • Small piece of ginger finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies finely chopped
  • 25 grams coriander leaves

Method to prepare Cumin potato salad with chorizo :

  1. Blanch the new potatoes in boiling water with half of the turmeric and slice ( cook the potatoes only half as we are going to sauté this in oil with the spices)
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan; add cumin seeds and when they start to crackle add the sliced potatoes. Cook on a high heat until they begin to colour slightly brown. Stir and make the colour even.
  3. Add the remaining turmeric, chilli powder, ground cumin and sea salt flakes.
  4. Add the onion rings and chorizo slices and stir quickly.
  5. When the onion starts to soften and chorizo is heated through, sprinkle the ginger, chillies and coriander. Cook for a few minutes until the potatoes are fully cooked. Keep it, to cool.
  6. Toss with rocket leaves, and transfer to a salad serving bowl.
