Baked Potatoes with Garlic Bread

The other day we had what my husband calls ‘Angrezi Khana’ for lunch. This was the first time I made baked potatoes following this recipe. Earlier I have baked potatoes for making bharta (will post that recipe some other time). I served the baked potatoes with garlic bread.

Baked Potatoes

6 small potatoes,
1 tsp green chilli paste,
1 tsp garlic paste,
2 tbsp grated cheese,
1 tbsp olive oil,
1 cup cream yoghurt,
1 tsp dried thyme,
Salt to taste


Peel the potatoes and slit them keeping them whole.

Heat the olive oil and add the green chilli paste and garlic paste. Sauté  this for 2 minutes. Add the potatoes and salt and give it a good stir. Cook covered till the potatoes are half done. 

Add the cream yoghurt, thyme and cheese. Mix well.

Transfer to an oven-proof dish. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 190o C for 20 minutes.

Garlic Bread

6 burger buns,
2 tbsp olive oil,
6-7 cloves of garlic,
Salt to taste


Slit the burger buns. Keep aside.

Crush the garlic cloves. Heat the olive oil and add the crushed garlic. Cook for a minute and add salt. Turn off the heat.

Brush the slit burger buns with this olive oil garlic mixture. Bake the burger buns for 10 minutes.
