Twice Baked Potatoes & A Kebab Filling
Update – See my latest post – Twice Baked Potatoes | Revisiting Through the Lens Series 5 for the same recipe in a different look! This is a part of Revisit Food Photos through the Lens Series.
Many a times I wonder why did I name my blog Confusion Cook? And then to re-jog my memory and of my tiddly-piddly followers, I create a recipe which truly in every sense a confusion or amalgamation of tastes, processes and ingredients.
We were planning a Xmas dinner with friends as a pot-luck dinner. I was all ready with my raw ingredients & basic processes, when my little angel decided to cry herself hoarse for the whole day & we had to rush her to a doc when she didn’t let up at all. In the end we had to cancel the dinner and help her calm down and sleep. And I was left with batter of dahi ke kebab, which was ready to be rolled & fried when guests were to come.
I was looking for a baked potato recipe when I came across this recipe which bakes potato twice and I realized that it is quite easy to use my dahi ke kebab batter here. I skipped using the scraped potato back into filling. The batter already had Indian spices so I didn’t add any more as per the recipe.
It was a delicious take on potato. It was bit sour, spicy, tangy & really tasty. Baked skin of the potato was an added bonus. The best part was the goodness & richness of potato without the extra calories as I did not use the scooped potato. This is a keeper recipe for me.
