  3. Parboil until the water is fully absorbed into the mixture.
  4. Fill the mixture into the potatoes, cover with the potato lids and secure with wooden cocktail sticks (toothpicks).
  5. Heat the ghee in a kadhai or saucepan and cook the tomatoes with the remaining salt over a moderate heat for 2 minutes.

  7. Garnish the stuffed aloo with chopped coriander and serve hot with roti or paratha.
