  • 200 grams sweet potato
  • 200 grams baby potatoes
  • 250 grams Potatoes normal
  • 3 Eggs whole
  • 3 Egg whites

For Dressing

  • 2 tablespoon tamarind pulp
  • 1 tablespoon mustard paste
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon Lemon juice from
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon coriander mint Chopped and for garnish


  • Wash all the potatoes very thoroughly so there is not even a trace of any dirt that is common in potatoes.
  • Pat dry with kitchen towel and prick them with a fork.
  • Now place them in microwave on microwave mode for 5-6 minutes. Check them once if required microwave for an extra minute.
  • By the time Potatoes are cooking you can put a saucepan filled with water over the stove and boil the eggs for 12 minutes.
  • After placing the eggs in the saucepan, take the all the ingredients for tamarind soy dressing except lemon, salt and chilli flakes in a small bottle and shake it nicely to mix everything. Keep this aside.
  • Meanwhile, Eggs are boiling and potatoes are done, so take out potatoes from the microwave and place them on a wooden chopping board. Cut them into the chunky shape of your liking a place them in a bowl.
  • The eggs are boiled by now, discard hot water run them under cold water and peel them. Cut one egg into approximate 4-6 pieces and I discard yolk from three, so that makes it 3 whole eggs and 3 egg whites. if you like them you can use all 6 whole eggs too. ( nutrition info is for 3 whole eggs + 3 egg white ) .
  • Add these eggs in salad bowl too. Add in the dressing and toss lightly.
  • Finally, serve the salad in serving bowl and Add some sea salt and lots of red chilli flakes If you like it hot. Don't forget the generous squeeze of lime in the end. ( remember bioavailability :)
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves and enjoy the hearty meal. Maybe with a glass of red ( only if you are feeling up to it )
