Awesome, to the core, and we mean it! The containers of potatoes and tomatoes are as awesome as the coconut-based stuffing that’s inside them.
This unique dish is made by stuffing potatoes and tomatoes with a flavourful paste of coconut, onions and garlic perked up with an assortment of spices like coriander seeds, aniseeds, poppy seeds and peppercorns.
The potatoes and the tomatoes are cooked with the stuffing in place, so they imbibe the rich flavour as they cook. Make sure you stir the potatoes and tomatoes gently once in a while, as they cook. This ensures uniform cooking.
The Potatoes and Tomatoes Stuffed with a Coconut-Based Paste is a dish that is bursting with flavour, and you are sure to enjoy every mouthful.
