Quick and Easy Roasted and Spiced Potato Salad (Aloo)

When thinking of a quick meal, I always start with the ingredients. I usually have an ingredient in mind then I plan what I am making as a meal.

I recently did a 20-minute cooking challenge with my friend, Chef Keesha O, you can watch the IGTV here.

I had some roasted potatoes and used them as a base for the recipe.

I roasted the potatoes with a bit of olive oil in a 350-degree oven for 30 minutes, nice and crispy.

I did a take on aloo which is an Indian dish that has potatoes and spices especially turmeric. I toasted yellow mustard seeds in a pan. You will hear the mustard seeds pop and it will release a yummy aroma. I set it aside to use later.

For the recipe, I used blanched asparagus and grape tomatoes.

I used my mortar and pestle and ground the yellow mustard seed.
