Mouse Dip

~ The Pink Mouse Dip ~

My little one & I are die hard fans of trying all the
new veggies , fruits n grains in the market .Right
from unusual, uncommon or exotic fruits & veggies
to the most rustic ones we are always adventurous
with our new finds. While crossing a local farmers
market on the outskirts of my parents hometown , I
noticed these deep purplish red potatoes called
Nawabganji Aaloo (potatoes of Nawabganj) in the
local dialect. I had heard a lot about red potatoes from
US bloggers , but had never been able to find these
red tubers here in my local vegetable market .

The farmer was generous in sharing his knowledge
about the rare variety . Back home -The first thing
we did was to boil n mix it to a bowl of fresh yogurt
to make a lovely pinkish potato dip ......

The Pink Mouse Dip

Carrots, olives , Grated Boiled Red Potatoes mixed with
curd & seasoned with salt & a pinch of garlic- mint powder .

  5. Hi Smita,
    Very creative! The red potatoes here in the US just have red peel and they have exactly same inside as any other potato. But undoubtedly they are more healthy than others.
