Recipe ~ Samosa-stuffed Baked Potato


  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 3/4 cup peas, cooked
  • 3 TBS butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Plain Greek yogurt (for topping)
  • 1. Wash potatoes, and pierce with fork. Bake directly on oven rack at 400 degrees, for one hour.
  • 2. While potatoes cook, saute onions, curry, ginger, and mustard in olive oil over medium heat until onions are translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
  • 3. Carefully remove potatoes from oven using oven mitts, and split lengthwise (but don’t cut all the way in half). Carefully scoop out insides into a bowl. Add onion mixture, cilantro, peas, and butter, and mash with a potato masher or fork until most lumps are gone. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • 4. Fill the potato with mixture, top with yogurt and cilantro, and serve.
  • Each potato serves 1 person as a main dish, but these could also be split in half and served as sides. Double to recipe for 4 full servings.
