Baked Mushrooms...oops Potatoes

Wow!!!!!!!!! Today I am very happy:) One month back, I saw one video on internet. And I started imagining one recipe. Today I got the chance to try out this……….. Now I will Break the suspense and tell U the story. I was searching for some baked mushroom recipe for my friend. I saw one video on YouTube, 'How to make mushroom shaped potatoes'. I tried it and after adding my ideas, I made this baked Indian version of this recipe. Luckily I have that apple Corer at home. When I gave thisdish to my neighbour to try, she immediately replied , "Are aaj maine bhi mushroom banaye hain". I was overjoyed… my mission is successful.That is when I opened my secret & told her it is potato. It contains very very less oil so its healthy too.



Ingredient


Small Potato - 6

Red chilli powder - 1/2 teaspoon

Garam Masala - 1/4 teaspoon

Chat Masala - 1/4 teaspoon

Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1/2 teaspoon

Lemon juice - 1 tablespoon

Chopped coriander - 2 teaspoon

Oil - 1 teaspoon

Salt as per taste


Apple Corer to give the desire shape.



Procedure

Boil potatoes in salted water. Potatoes should get 3/4 cooked. So that we can shape it properly. Cool it and remove the skin very carefully. Outer part of potatoes should remain smooth after removing the skin.

Now take one potato and put the Apple Corer from one end of the potato. Push till the middle portion of potato. Now cut the lower outer part of potato. Gently pull the corer outside and you will get the lovely mushroom shaped Potato. Repeat same procedure for remaining potatoes. [For video please visit this you Tube link : 'How to make mushroom shaped potatoes' ]
Preheat the oven to 200 C. Now mix remaining ingredients and marinate mushroom shaped potatoes in it for 15-20 minutes. Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the baking tray and bake, turning once, until deep golden brown and crisp (It took me 20 minutes.).

Sprinkle some chat masala on it and serve hot with Pudina Chutney.

My successful attempt goes to my dearest friend Pari's event, 'Only Kid's Delight'
