Instructions
  1. We need to start by boiling the eggs and cooking the potatoes. This can be done in advance. The eggs should be hardboiled and potatoes cooked well but not turning mushy. [How to make the perfect boiled eggs]
  2. Peel the eggs and potatoes when cool enough to handle. Quarter them and keep aside in a bowl.
  3. In a small pan or a tempering ladle, heat the mustard oil.
  4. Add the nigella, cumin and mustard seeds. Once seeds splutter, add the finely chopped green chillies. After few seconds, add turmeric, remove from flame and transfer this over the eggs and potatoes.
  5. Add Kasundi, salt, finely chopped onion and mint leaves. Toss well and allow to chill for minimum one hour before serving.
  6. If the taste of mustard oil is too strong for you, you can use sunflower oil or any other cooking oil.
