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. 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.

  • 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.
