nepali potato salad

Hi!Nepali cuisine is pretty similar to ours(varied though ours may be from one end of the country to the other)....anyway i noted a couple of recipes down from nepalicuisine.com and this is the first of the lot.Though i tried to stick to the given recipe as much as possible...i just could'nt get myself to use the amount of oil they advocated..that was the only thing i changed....the oher thing that i will do the next time is opt either for the red chilli pdr. or the green chilli..because both together did make things a bit fiery.
INGRDS
1.4 medium sized potatoes..boiled and cubed
2.4 tablespoons sesame seeds(roasted and ground)
3. 1 green chilli finely chopped(i would make this optional) 
4. salt to taste
5 3/4 tablespoon lemon juice
6.4 tablespoons sesame oil(i just could'nt...i used less than 1 tablespoon)
7.1 tsp chilli pdr
8.2 tsp veg oil(i used 1 tsp)
9.pinch of asfoetida(hing)
10.8-10 fenugreek seeds
11. 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro.
METHOD.
1.Mix the sesame pdr.salt,red chili pdr,green chilli and lemon juice..add the oil..mix well.Toss the potato cubes in this.Add the cilantro..toss again.
2.Heat the veg oil..add the hing and the fenugreek seeds  ..then pour this on the potato salad.



3. Serve.......though its supposed to taste better the next day..i will not know since its all over!Maybe the next time i will make it and keep hidden for a day:)

    CHILLIES
    Botanical names: Capsicum Annum
    Family name: Solanaceae
    A member of the Capsicum family, there are over 200 different varieties of chillies in the world. Having a mild to strong hot taste it is used in almost every cuisine-Indian, Chinese, Mexican, Japanese. Chillies have two characteristics, one their colour because of the pigment called Capsanthin in it and two the biting pungency because of Capsaicin, on the basis of which the varieties differ and so its demand.
