I found this recipe in a cookbook called, "Potatoes", and decided to make it since I love many simplie variations of potato salads. This potato salad taste best if prepared the night before since it allows for the flavors to permeate throughout the salad, and it has a nice fruity taste after it has been refrigerated for a couple of hours. Also, the recipe calls for the preparation of poppadoms, but I did not like the lentil flavor of the flour. I would suggest Naan bread with this recipe to add for flavor.
