Lahsooni (garlicky) Potato Jackets


P1040191
Hi Friends!
Today again I share an excellent starter/ snack recipe which I had first seen in a cookery show on ETV and was presented by the renowned singer Bela Shende of Sa Re Ga Ma fame or Manamohana fame (the song from Jodhaa Akbar). I had liked the preparation instantly and had scribbled the recipe in my diary. Today while watching another show the potato jackets were shown and I was reminded of this recipe which I had noted down ages back.
The preparation which Bela had made asked for deep frying the potatoes which I very neatly avoided, I just stayed with the concept of Lahsooni Aloo and changed everything else right from the spices, I know I have this problem that I can’t stick to a recipe completely, I have to make my contribution to the preparation.
I must tell you the end product was amazingly tasty with a mild flavor of garlic and rightly spiced. I used the bits of the cored potato in making the filling and also added corn and capsicum. Kept the herb level minimum so that it does not over power the garlic flavor. The marinade gave the potatoes a nice texture and mild tangy taste.The cheese on top gave it the final kick and I will call it a heavenly delight. I normally avoid eating potatoes but I gobbled up quite a few pieces and still could not resist eating them. I surely showed some generosity towards my DH and saved a few for him…see how kind I am.Wink

Ingredients
For Potato Jacket
6-7 medium potatoes, parboiled
For Filling
1 Chinese garlic pod (thick)
1  small onion finely chopped
2 green chilies deseeded and finely chopped
about 1/4 cup sweet corn kernels
3 tbsp chopped capsicum
bits of cored potato
1/4 tsp Italian seasoning
a large pinch freshly crushed black pepper
salt to taste
For the marinade
1/2 cups hung curd
1 tsp red chili pwd
salt to taste
1 garlic pod (thick) finely chopped or grated
For Topping
Mozzarella Cheese

Method
Peel and parboil the potatoes (takes about 4-5 mins) and then immerse them immediately in cold  water to stop the cooking  process. Cut them into halves and core them. Keep the cored pieces aside and cut them into bits.

Prepare the marinade and coat it well on the cored potatoes and leave it covered for half an hour
P1040170 P1040172 P1040173 P1040174
To prepare the filling, take a tsp of low fat butter or use olive oil and add grated garlic to it followed by onions and green chilies. Saute.
P1040175 P1040176
Once the onions are light brown in color add the corn, bits of cored potato and capsicum. Season with salt, black pepper and italian seasoning. Do not overcook, let the veggies have a bite.
P1040177
Preheat the oven at 180C. Meanwhile take the marinated potatoes, line them on a greased baking tray and then put 1/2-1 tsp filling in each jacket.
P1040178 P1040179
Spread some grated cheese on top followed by some chili flakes. Spray some oil lightly on top ( I used my cooking spray).
P1040180 P1040181    
Bake them in an oven for about 10 mins or till the cheese melts and then serve them hot.
P1040183
These do not need any sauce or dip and best all by themselves.

Ushnish Ghosh said...

Dear pari
Thats an awesome recipe..I dont care what was the original recipe..I shall follow yours.
But I shall fry the jacket to get the aroma of boiled potato fry... As such boiled Potato wont absorb much oil and the dish is already a high calorie healthy food with Potato and cheese ...yummy..cant wait really.
have a nice day

Pari said...

Thanks Jeyashri, I always feel delighted reading ur comments. U truly inspire me to innovate more. Thanks so much dear.
Da, I knew I was going to get this comment from u if u read this post.Frying..even I was so tempted to do that but then avoided, as it is many calories going into it, so saved a few. :)

Shanthi said...

Hi Pari,

yummy dish, i love such healthy variations to Potato starters. Did those baked potatoes crisp/brown (maybe on the bottom) when they were done? Did they have a crunchy taste ?

Dear Roopa, the bottom of the potato becomes crisp very lightly, but overall it's not a crispy starter.
Raks, this will be a great syarter surely.

Thanks Shanthiji and Aiyeesha.
