For the Filling:
- 2 Onions (Cut into Small Pieces)
- 2 Tomatoes (Cut into Small Pieces)

- Garam Masala
- Kali Mirch (Black Pepper)
Prepare the Potatoes:
- Wash the big-sized potatoes thoroughly.
- Using a paring knife, carefully scoop out the insides of the potatoes, leaving a thick shell. The scooped-out portion will be used for stuffing.
Prepare the Filling:
- Heat a pan with some oil.
- Fry the chopped onions until they turn brown.
- Add the chopped tomatoes, grated paneer, peas, chopped mushrooms, and grated carrots to the pan.
- Stir the mixture and cook until the vegetables become tender and the flavors meld together. This should take about 10-15 minutes.
- Season the vegetable and paneer mixture with the spices - Haldi (turmeric), Dhania (coriander), Saunf (fennel seeds), Garam Masala, salt, and Kali Mirch (black pepper). Adjust the quantity of spices according to your taste.
Fill the Potatoes:
- Take the scooped-out potatoes and stuff them with the prepared vegetable and paneer mixture. Ensure that you fill them generously.
Top with Cheese:
- Sprinkle a generous amount of grated cheese on top of each stuffed potato. The cheese will melt and form a delicious crust during baking.
- Preheat your oven to a temperature of 350°F (175°C).
- Place the stuffed potatoes on a baking tray or dish.
- Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the cheese on top is golden brown and bubbly, and the potatoes are fully cooked and soft.
- Once the stuffed and baked potatoes are done, remove them from the oven.
- Let them cool for a few minutes.
- Serve them hot as a delightful and flavorful side dish or even as a main course.
This recipe results in delicious stuffed and baked potatoes with a flavorful, cheesy topping and a well-seasoned vegetable and paneer filling. Enjoy your meal..
