Baked Potato Skins with Paneer & Veggies

Sharing is caring!

I love Potatoes in all forms and just need an excuse to eat them. Specially love them when they are barbecued or oven roasted. I do make a simple Indian style oven baked potatoes or at times, make this Oven roasted potatoes which have a marinade of coriander and mint. Today I am sharing Baked Potato Skins with Paneer & Veggies, where in the potatoes are baked and then the skin is loaded with a mixture of fresh Paneer, Avocado and fresh veggies like carrot.

This Baked Potato Skins with Paneer & Veggies is a yummy and delicious starter or appetiser that can be made well ahead of time. The veggies and the paneer can be marinated a day in advance and the potatoes can be baked well ahead of time. The final assembling can be done before serving.

I found this lip smacking recipe on the spiffy cookie, I immediately bookmarked it. How I hopped on to her blog? Well we have a facebook group and there we have a thing, where we shower other bloggers with some love. That is if we want to recreated one of their recipe, we need to claim them and create a recipe from their blog and then the game continues. I loved Erin’s blog and specially her gluten free section, where she has a list of gluten free bakes. I am still exploring and bookmarking and I am sure you would do the same.

Type of Potatoes

So I have used Rooster Potatoes here and I am using this for the first time. I have tasted this earlier though and they have a dry flesh. They are best suited for baking. This potatoes have a thick skin and hence the ideal choice for baking and for this Baked Potato Skins with Paneer & Veggies.

Baked Potato Skins with Paneer & Veggies

Coming to the recipe, it has a few parts to it and you might feel that it has a huge list. But all the ingredients are basic like salt, pepper , ginger etc and are easily available at home. Secondly you can customize this as per your liking. I have spread the potato skins with avocado mash. I can say that they give the necessary creamy texture and replaces butter. Next I have added marinated paneer instead of tofu, as I prefer paneer. But if you want to make it vegan, you can safely opt for tofu. Then goes in the pickled carrot and you are done. One can add different types of vegetables too for the topping.

I have drizzled thick yogurt mix with sriracha sauce instead of Mayo for the garnish as well as for the sauce. Do not skip this, as it adds to the necessary taste and give the baked potatoes the necessary kick. Enjoy this hot from the oven as your main meal or as a party starter.
