About Spiced Potato And Kidney Beans Salad ( Achari Aloo Salad)

A vegan potato salad with some protein and veggies is the right choice for one's lunch/brunch, especially on those lazy days. But unlike other countries, one does not find a salad that can be truly labelled as Indian. So, I decided to make one on my own. But what flavour could encompass the entire width and breadth of a country that is better known for it's diversity ? Of course, the humble 'achar' or pickle. Though pickles from various regions make use of different ingredients, there are a few basic ingredients that are quite common. And using these very ingredients that are common to every Indian kitchen, I mustered up a yummy and filling bowl of potato salad !
