  • 3 medium sized- boiled potatoes.
  • 10 Green chillies (hot small variety), minced.
  • 4 tbsp- chopped coriander leaves.
  • 1 inch piece- fresh ginger, crushed finely.
  • 1 tsp- mustard seeds.
  • 15 tsp- cumin seeds.
  • 1/2 tsp- Hing (asafoetida).
  • 1 tsp- Red Chilli powder.
  • Salt to taste.
  • 15 tbsp- cooking oil.
  • How to Make Potato Stuffing:

    1. Boil the potatoes in their skins till soft, remove the skins and mash very nicely with a fork. Set aside.
    2. Heat the oil and add the mustard, cumin, ginger and green chillies.
    3. When the mustard starts crackling (this should take about 2-4 mins), add the hing and chilli powder and fry for about 1/2 a minute.
    4. Remove from heat, add the mashed potatoes, chopped coriander leaves and salt to taste.
    5. Mix well and heat through.
    6. Remove and transfer to a bowl.
    7. This recipe yields about 2 cups of stuffing.
    8. Use this stuffing for potato parathas, toasted potato sandwiches, bread pakodas, stuffed vegetables (bell peppers, tomatoes, etc) and potato bondas.
    9. On its own, it makes a yummy bhaji that goes very well with puris.
