This dish is a delicious assembly of potatoes and minced meat
Our Indian cuisine is full of Bharwa dishes where certain vegetables are stuffed with different kinds of fillings by eviscerating the insides of the vegetable that is stuffed. Bharwa baingan and Bharwa tamatar are the products of this very cooking technique. Now replace these with chicken keema stuffed potatoes. Does it sound bizarre but exciting too? So it is, chicken keema made with a lightly sauteed mix of ginger-garlic, powdered spices and tomato puree makes for the super filling that you had only wished for. Tomato sauce added at the end of the chicken keema preparation makes it flavourful for kids as well.
Now, let’s talk about the taste of baked potatoes. These become extremely soft and moist from the inside and crisp from the outside and especially the peel becomes super crisp. The potatoes are wrapped in aluminium foil before baking in an oven to retain their moisture. On the contrary, if potatoes are baked without wrapping then they will develop a crispy skin.
And if you are baking potatoes in an open fire, then they also need to be wrapped to prevent them from burning. And lastly, the ideal temperature for baking potatoes is 99°C. On the nutritional front, baked potatoes however have 20-40% less Vitamin c, because of being heated for a long time in slow air. While small potatoes, bake quicker and can retain higher vitamin content.
