Telia Batata or Potatoes in a mustard dressing. This recipe is to die for. Especially for those who enjoy the taste of mustard. I believe you should put enough of it so that the mustardy sensation shoots right into your head. Believe me, you’ll love the taste of this dish.

My grandma made this dish for the large joint family that mom lived in and they ate it with hot puris. The dish is spicy, mustardy and I promise sooooo yummy!

Here is the recipe

Telia Batata

Serves 3


500 gms boiled potatoes, chopped into quarters.

1/4 cup oil

3 teaspoons readymade mustard powder or 3 teaspoons ground split yellow mustard

Salt to taste

2 chillies finely chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

A handful of finely chopped fresh coriander


1 Mix the ground mustard in the oil vigorously for 5 minutes. Add the salt and mix again.

2 Put the chopped potatoes into the oil mixture. Add the lemon juice, chillies and fresh coriander and give them a good but gentle stir. Avoid mashing the potatoes too much.

3 Keep in the refrigerator or outside for 1/2 an hour to let the flavours blend before serving.
