Cheese Stuffed Tandoori Potatoes with Couscous Salad

I found this recipe on bbc good food. So I guess I should post a link back to the original recipe.

It turned out quite fantastic really. The only change I made was the salad. I made it healthier and more filling by adding couscous to it.

Couscous is what we call dalia in Hindi or saanja in Marathi. It is very nutritious and a healthier option for the diet conscious as it is full of fiber which makes it very filling too.

This is my recipe for the couscous salad.


  • 1/2 cup couscous
  • 2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 large cucumber peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup corn, boiled
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1 bunch coriander finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
Steam the couscous in a steamer for twenty minutes. Press a grain in between your thumb and forefinger to see if it has become soft. Remove it onto a plate and let it cool for a few minutes.

To this add the tomatoes, cucumber, corn, coriander, and lemon juice. Season it with salt and pepper as per your taste.

Serve with the tandoori potatoes as a beautiful multicolored, healthy and soul satisfying meal.

Happy Cooking!
