“I have to find unusual, tasty and flavorful recipes to get my family to eat more veggies. I love this Indian dish, makes a nice light meal or side dish depending on the size of the potatoes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice off the top from the aloo (potatoes) - a thick slice to be used as a lid later, and carefully scoop the inside.
  2. Place the Cauliflower, sweet pepper, peas, onion, chilies, garlic and half salt in a saucepan with the water.
  3. Parboil until the water is fully absorbed into the mixture.
  4. Fill the mixture into the potatoes, cover with the potato lids and secure with wooden toothpicks.
  5. Heat a little oil or butter in a saucepan and cook the tomatoes with the remaining salt over a moderate heat for 2 minutes.
  6. Carefully arrange the stuffed aloo (potatoes) over the tomato mixture, cover tightly and cook potatoes in their own steam for about 10 - 15 minutes until tender.
