Curried Potato Salad

2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
⅓ cup olive oil
4 fresh small red Thai chiles, roughly chopped
¾ cup plain Greek yogurt
½ cup tahini
1½ tablespoon curry powder
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
⅓ cup roughly chopped cilantro
2 scallions, thinly sliced

Boil the potatoes in a 6-qt. saucepan of salted water until tender, about 45 minutes; drain and chill. Peel and roughly chop the potatoes; place in a large bowl and set aside.

Heat oil in a 10″ skillet over medium-high heat. Add chiles and cook until golden, about 1 minute; let cool. Transfer oil and chiles to a blender with the yogurt, tahini, curry powder, zest, juice, salt, and pepper; purée until smooth. Pour dressing over potatoes and stir in half each of the cilantro and scallions. Garnish with remaining cilantro and scallions.
