Recipe by twissis

Found at a cooking-by-country website, this recipe boasts all the things I want from a recipe. It can be served hot or cold, can be served as a starter or a side-dish to virtually all main-courses, can be made ahead, is ingredient friendly & has a 35 min prep time (Cool time not included)..I rest my case. Enjoy!

I boiled these potatoes until they were still crisp so that try wouldn't be mushy. We liked them but next time I might reduce the cumin. Served with a sprinkle of paprika for garnish. Thanks! Made for CQ '17
