Twice Baked Potato
Twice Baked Potato is a delicious take on potatoes. A bit sour, spicy, tangy & really tasty. Baked skin of the potato is an added bonus. The best part is the goodness & richness of potato. A keeper recipe for me.

I made Twice Baked Potatoes not long ago. We celebrated new year with them.
V wanted them again.
What V wants, V gets!
Does he? Doesn’t he? Two different view points we share. Blame it on matrimonial harmony!
Coming back to twice baked potatoes, last time I baked them using hung curd mixture, this time I used the potato filling mixed with potato scooped from inside.
The result for delicious and very filling.
Though the baking time is high, I find it needs minimum work and perfect for parties. It is truly a crowd pleaser.
While photographing the potatoes, I thought setting it formally, not sure it worked here. V didn’t like it much.
It’s been 2 months since I clicked these, but when I look at my images of today and this one, I definitely feel I could have done better.
