For the first time I tasted this Nepali style potato salad in a picnic lunch few years back. The dish is also known as Nepali chutney in my place. I liked the taste very much and so we kept that item in the menu of my brother's marriage party later. 

The recipe is actually very simple. Boiled potatoes are peeled, chopped and then mixed with roasted black sesame seeds and other spices. Some also add sliced onion, cucumber and reddish. But I have added only onion here. I also added boiled chickpeas. Check the recipe below :
