Baked Potatoes ||| Desi & Videshi Style!




Bandita loved the variety of Baked Potatoes we had during our Cyprus Trip so I tried to try my hands too! there were a lot of recipes available online; I was spoilt for choice and yet wanted to try something different than what we had in Cyprus...

After a lot of deliberations chose 2 types of Baked Potatoes...Desi and Videshi to have an equal mix of flavours! 

Here you go with the recipes...

Pre-Heat the Oven at 200 Degrees Celsius...

                                                                      Desi Style! 

Ingredients:

1 Medium Sized Potato
8 tbsp Whipped Yoghurt
2 tbsp Spice Mix (I used Mehran Kadhai Chicken Mix)
1 tbsp Lemon Juice

Process:

1. Peel the potato and make small pieces
2. Mix the Yoghurt, Lemon and the Spice mix in a bowl; Marinate the potatoes for 30 minutes
3. Put the Mix into a baking dish and bake for 50 minutes. Time may vary depending on size of potato and oven.


                                                                     Videshi Style! 

Ingredients:

1 Medium Sized Potato
2 tsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Black Pepper Powder
Salt to Taste

Process:

1. Using a sharp kitchen knife, carefully start making a series of vertical cuts width-wise through the potato, making sure not to cut all the way through - cuts should only be 3/4 of the way through the potato. 
2. Place the sliced potato on an baking sheet slices up, then drizzle top with olive oil, salt and pepper; fill the insides with the pepper to get maximum taste
3. Bake for 50 minutes. Time may vary depending on size of potato and oven.

We baked both the potatoes side by side in one baking dish as there were only 2 potatoes...

The results were pretty decent for the first try and I was pleasantly surprised myself with the flavours! when the baking process was on the aroma filled up our home & I was expecting some good things! 

Do give this a try if you want...am sure you won't be disappointed!

Till the time we meet again…

Cheers to life…

Till then ride safe and have safe sex…

Hasta la Victoria Siempre…

Jai BoP!

I love Potatoes, infact I think I resemble one :) given the fact that I eat so much of these carb laden goodies.

I love your videshi style as I make the Hassleback Potatoes a lot. I had made one a few weeks ago, sharing the link for you to try :)
