Russian Salad

Russian Salad


Mayonnaise and Vegetables

2 hard Boiled eggs cut in cubes

Vegetables that can go in the salad are

Green Peas, French Beans, Potatoes, Carrots, Beet, cauliflower or brocolli.

I have tried with even onions, onions doesn't come out well.

The above vegetables, cut into small cubes and keep in a steel container and steam them in a pressure cooker. Its better of they are not diectly boiled. If you don't know how to steam just boil them, but boil all the vegetabls separately and drain the excess water.

In case you are steaming it , drop a few beans or dried peas or even small pebbles inside the cooker before putting the container with the vegetables, so that there are some water between the container containing the veg and bottom of the cooker. The vegetables should just be a little more than half boiled. Overcooked russian salad taste awful.

Now drain any excess water and keep the vegetables mixing bowl and cool them.

Add the eggs, or/and paneer cubes(for vegetarians)

Add mayonnaise, two table spoons to half a cup should do, depending on how you like the taste. Mix well and chill it in the Freezer. Just chill, not deep freeze. For a more indianised version, sprinkle some red Chilli powder. Enjoy..

Adding fruits like Apples, Pineapple and grapes makes it a slightly different variant. try it.
