Ingredient Checklist

  • 3 dried small red chiles, such as chile de arbol, stemmed
  • 2 teaspoons coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 medium yellow or russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 (7 ounce) package mung bean sprouts
  • 1 ½ cups medium strawberries, quartered
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Butter lettuce for serving

Step 1

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chiles, coriander seeds and cumin seeds. Toast, shaking the pan frequently, until the chiles blacken and the seeds turn reddish brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.

Step 2

Add oil to the pan and heat over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.

Step 3

Meanwhile, finely grind the chiles and spices in a clean spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle.

Step 4

Add the ground spices to the potatoes along with sprouts, strawberries, cilantro, lime juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Scoop the salad onto lettuce leaves and serve at room temperature.
