Categories: Vegetables, Indian


4 md Baking potatoes
1 c Chopped onion
3/4 c Diced carrots
2 tb Veg. oil
3/4 c Red/green bell pepper,chop
1 ts Ground coriander seeds
1/2 ts Turmeric
1/8 ts Ground cardamom (optional)
1 pn Ground cloves
4 oz Cream cheese, room temp
Fresh ground black pepper
Spicy Yogart Sauce -
[seperate recipe]

Scrub the potatoes and bake them in a 400 F. oven for 1 hour or until done.

While the potatoes are baking, prepare the filling. Saute the onions and
carrots in the oil until they are tender, for about 10 minutes. Add the
bell pepper and spices and continue to saute for another minute or two,
stirring. Add a little water to the pan to prevent sticking, cover it, and
cook for another 5 minutes, or until the bell pepper is just tender. Stir
in the cream cheese and add salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, make a lengthwise cut in the
top of each one and scoop out at least half of the contents. If you are
using large potatoes, cut them in half lengthwise and scoop them out,
leaving about 1/2 inch of potato clining to the skin. Mash the scooped-out
potato and then add it to the vegetable-cream cheese mixture. Lower the
oven heat to 350 F. Fill the potato shells with this mixture and place them
in an oiled baking dish. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.

Serve topped with Spicy Yogurt Sauce. Baked Stuffed Potatoes served with
Dal and your favorite chutney make a complete meal. Note: this dish can be
prepared ahead. After stuffing the potatoes, wrap them well and refrigerate
for up to two days. When ready to serve, bake them in a 350 F. oven for
about 45 minutes.
