Potato & Peppers Salad

A Healthy and Tasty, Colourful Salad :)

Ok so it's been a while, I have not cooked so thought let me make something!

I enter the kitchen, survey the fridge and cabinets to see what is lying.

Standing near the platform, I'm wondering what should I cook?

My eyes fall on Potatoes, its been ages since I have cooked any thing using Potatoes, the most cursed veggie by the diet inspectors. Trust me boiled potatoes do no harm baby, they are good for you ;)

Then as usual there are those vibrant Bell Peppers lying in the fridge. The sight of them only makes me so happy.

So now I'm thinking should I make some rolls.

With that thought, I put the potatoes in the pressure cooker to boil asap. 

Now while the potatoes are being boiled, I'm feeling a lil sick, feverish kind, guess gotta blame the weather, so now I wonder who is gonna do all that jazz of frying and etc. etc. 

A confession, my mood can be even more volatile than Nifty, by volatile I mean changing mood haan, lol.

So then I decide to cut short the process and do something different.

Lazy me always looking out for shortcuts ;)

So then I take all the veggies and chop them in big cubes.

Take a non - stick pan, drizzle some healthy Olive Oil and toss in the veggies one by one, followed by the seasonings.

So now I wonder is it appropriate to call it a Salad, I guess it is, A Healthy and Tasty Salad :)


4-5 Potatoes - Boiled
