Stuffed Aloo

Today I'm sharing stuffed potatoes (with gravy) recipe. I ate it first time at my friend's place when she invited us for lunch. I liked it very much. The original recipe is with deep fried potatoes but for cutting the calories, I tried this with boiling potatoes and it was found to be very delectable by the guests.

Potatoes -3 big size or 6 medium size
Paneer - 1/4 cups(mashed)

Green chilli - 1
Salt to taste
Chat masala - 1/4 tsp
Cashew nuts - around 8
Raisins - 10 - 12
Mint leaves - 1 tbsp (Chopped)

For Gravy:

Onion - 1 medium
Tomato - 3 
Green chillies -2 (finely chopped)
Ginger - 1 tsp (grated)
Garlic - 1-2 cloves (crushed)
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Peanut powder - 2 tsp
Salt - to taste

Coriander powder - 1 tbsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Hing - 1/8 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Water - 1cup

For this preparation either choose the potatoes which are long so that you can cut it into two and scoop for stuffing or medium size which can be scopped and stuffed. Par boil the potatoes. Cut it at one side so that it can stand and can't roll. Scoop the potatoes carefully. I used my melon scooper for that. Mash the scooped out potato and paneer. Chop the mint leaves and green chilli finely and mix it. Add salt, chat masala, chopped cashew nuts and raisins. Mix well and fill the mixture into the potatoes.

For gravy add oil in a pan. When oil is hot add cumin seeds and hing. Add ginger, garlic and green chilli. Add chopped onions and fry till golden brown. Add tomato paste and peanut powder. Add turmeric powder, salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder and  cumin powder. Cook it well for about 10 mins. When oil leaves the sides add water and let it boil for another few minutes. 
Preheat the oven at 300 F. Arrange the stuffed potatoes in a oven proof dish. Pour the gravy on the potatoes.

 Put it in the oven for 12-13 mins. Take out from the oven and garnish with cilantro or mint leaves or onion greens. Ready to serve.
