Ingredients:  
2 pounds red salad potatoes
1 medium onion, minced (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon BROWN MUSTARD SEED
2 teaspoons SWEET CURRY POWDER
1 teaspoon GARAM MASALA
1/2 teaspoon GRANULATED GARLIC
1/4 teaspoon GROUND GINGER
2 tablespoons chopped, fresh CILANTRO (2 teaspoons dry)
1/4 Cup water
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:
Directions:
Bring 2 quarts water to a rolling boil. Add the whole potatoes. Boil 18-25 minutes, depending on how big the potatoes are. Drain the potatoes well and return to the hot pan to steam dry for a few minutes, and then remove the skin right away. If the boiled potatoes are left to sit with their skins on, they'll become mushy. When the potatoes are peeled, chop into 1/2-inch cubes. If the potatoes are very small, just cut in half or quarters. Place in a large bowl and set aside until ready to use. Don't refrigerate, or the potatoes will take on a "reheated" flavor when warmed. Peel, halve and finely mince the onion. In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Add BROWN MUSTARD SEED when hot. Stir the seeds and watch carefully. When the seeds begin to pop, add the minced onion. Lower the heat a bit and sauté the onions, stirring, until they are soft and translucent–about 5 minutes. Add SWEET CURRY POWDER, GARAM MASALA, GARLIC, GINGER and CILANTRO, stir to coat onions. Add water, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt; simmer until a thick paste is formed (about 1 minute). Add potatoes; toss gently until colorful and warmed through. Serve warm, room temperature, or cold.

Personal Notes:
A delightful twist on regular potato salad - curried red potatoes with brown mustard seed and cilantro. Nicely spicy without being too hot, Spiced Potato Salad is wonderful served hot or cold. There isn't any mayonnaise in the dressing, so it's perfect to cart along to picnics.
