Stuffed potato

Can anyone please help with details of the following potato dish. We often visit a little restaurant near Silver Sand Beach owned by Sonny. He treated us to a sampler. It was a warm large boiled potato which had been hollowed out and filled with rice. Does anyone know the name of this dish and preparation details. It seems simple enough, but like all delicious meals, there are generally tricks to the cooking. Thanks.

Re: Stuffed potato

I make stuffed potatoes all the time. I just use a standard dolma filling - there are many variations and they will all work fine - and gently broil the hollowed out potatoes in a pan of water to which a little tomato puree has been added.

I don't ever measure ingredients just follow my instincts but my filling is a couple of small cups of washed and soaked rice (you can par-boil if you like), a grated onion, garlic crushed, to taste, tomato puree (generous dollop), a glug of olive oil, 200g of minced lamb/beef (optional and again you can pre-fry if you like) fresh or dried mint (i use a generous amount), a little parsley, a little cumin (optional but you need the mint to give it an authentic flavour). Chuck everything into a bowl and blend adding salt, pepper and if you like it spicy some pul biber flakes (best use your hands) then pack into scraped out potatoes loosely, pop a potato lid on or a tomato slice will do. Stand in a large saucepan like soldiers (you can slice the potatoes across at the bottom when you are preparing them so they obligingly stay upright), add the liquid to about 2 thirds and allow to cook for about half an hour. Keep an eye that water isn't absorbed and just test the rice is cooked before you serve with a salad and fresh bread to dip in the sauce.

If you want it to look real posh instead of serving them whole on a plate, try slicing them fairly thickly and laying them in a half moon fan on the plate then drizzle over the juice. Looks great and filling stays put!
