Stuffed Potatoes


Boil baby potatoes, peel and cut them in half.


Now carefully using a spoon scoop the middle part of potatoes and make like a potato boat. (See pictures at the end of recipe)


Reserve scooped potatoes in a bowl, add shredded paneer, black pepper powder, turmeric powder and salt. Mix everything and keep aside.


Now on medium heat, fry potato boats we made previously till golden brown in all sides.


Let them cool down and stuff them with paneer-potato stuffing.



Add oil in a pan, once heated add roughly chopped onions and cook till they are soft.


Transfer to a blender and make a paste.


In the same pan add oil, then add ginger garlic paste and sauté, next add the prepared onion paste and cook to 2-4 minutes.


Then add red chili powder, garam masala, salt and cook till oil separates out.


Add 1/2 cup of water, peas and tomatoes. Mix everything and simmer for another minute or two.
