Baked Potatoes can be served as an appetizer or a side dish with some main dish or even as an evening snack when kids are hungry.
My kids love these potatoes and demand that these be served as a snack rather than with the main meal so that they can enjoy these more.
These are really easy to make and can be made healthier by adding more vegetables to it. Or you can make these more kid-friendly by adding more cheese to the recipe 😉 My kids will eat almost anything if I add Cheese to it. Well, Almost;-)
If you are planning to serve these as an appetizer it is better to choose small potatoes so that guests can pick one piece easily though it will be a little difficult to scoop out from small potatoes.

This was the most favored dish of Papaji.
Particularly when he would skip dinner, he used to get potatoes baked, peeled, cut into half, scooped about 15mm in the center and filled with veg/butter and a dash of salt.
Really wow. Sam and Oj also loved these 🙂
This recipe is kind of like ‘kulle’ which is an appetizer which papa makes and has been passed down by older generations.He says its one of the Delhi specialties which you can’t find easily. Maybe he can make for you when you visit next time.
Hi Swati didi. yeah would love to try them next time when we are in delhi 🙂
