  • 4 lg russet potatoes, scrubbed baked, and cooled
  • 1/4 c soy milk, water or vegetable broth I used broth
  • 3 tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard seeds (or whatever kind you have, and I had a good Indian grocery at my old place, so I had it)
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1 sm yellow onion, diced
  • 1 med carrot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c frozen peas, rinsed
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • extra oil for brushing potatoes

Slice cooled potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out insides, leaving 1/4 inch of potato in skin.  Mash potato guts up with broth or soy.  Preheat oven to 400deg.  Heat peanut oil in lg skillet over med-high heat, add mustard and coriander seeds.  The oil should be hot enough for seeds to pop, allow them to do so for ~1 min.  Add onions and carrots, saute until onions begin to brown.

Add garlic and ginger, saute a minute more.  Add cumin, tumeric, salt and splash of water.  Stir well, add potatoes, and mix all well.  Add a little water if it looks dry.  Cook until potatoes heated through.  Add peas, cook until heated through.  Add lemon juice to taste, incorporate.

Brush insides of potato boats with a little oil.  Scoop filling into boats, pressing gently to hold in place.

Line potatoes on baking sheet, bake 20 mins.  You can garnish with cilantro.

    Miss goin out with you too! These came out really tasty, but slightly on the dry side. Not sure how to fix that. Maybe if I slather it with tamarind chutney….(which I do have a terrific recipe for). Hm….
