Indian potato salad snack bento

Indian potato salad snack bento


Morning prep time: 3 minutes. Today we went to an event where there was Mexican food for everyone, but I’ve found it’s wise to bring along a snack bento for Bug just in case the food is either late or too spicy for him. On occasions where I didn’t bring something along I’ve sometimes been very sorry. So I packed a 260ml snack container with some leftover broccoli salad some friends had brought over, cherry tomatoes, and homemade Indian masala-spiced potato salad with yogurt, cilantro, fresh mint, mango powder, cumin, and apple & rice vinegar.

  1. Mango powder? What’s it like? I love mangoes but the only ones I’ve tried are the fresh ones and the dried ones.

    And about the Blogger’s Choice Awards, I have to admit, I’m thisclose to making another account just to vote for you, goshdarnedit. Raise the flag for bento bloggers everywhere! But that would be cheating and I’d have to screw up my net-karma. ^_^;;

  2. Voted for you. And at first glance, I thought those were eggs died red :) The salad looks (and sounds) delicious.

  3. I kind of had to giggle at this. Thinking “Indian at a Mexican event!” But I find this so creative Biggie. Just love the way you spiced the salad up.


  4. That potato salad sounds so good. If there’s a recipe, I’d love to get it. I stumbled on your blog two weeks ago when I had no idea what a Bento was and now I’m hooked. You have some truly useful information and I appreciate all the detail and the lovely photos. Good luck with the Blogger awards. I made an account just to vote for your site!

  5. I’m normally not a fan of uncooked broccoli, but this salad was surprisingly nice (I think because the florets were broken up so small).

  6. Thanks Meeta! I didn’t really think about the whole “Indian at a Mexican event” aspect, just grabbed what was handy and ran out the door.

  7. I would also like to get a recipe of that potato salad if possible. :-)
