Take peeled potatoes and cut off a small slice from the opposite ends. Next, scoop out the inside to get a shell-like shape. Collect all the potato portions you remove in a separate bowl. Deep fry these trimmings until crisp.
In a pan, heat oil and add ginger and green chillies. Saute for a minute before transferring to a bowl. Next, mix in paneer, chaat masala, red chilli powder, garam masala and salt. In a separate bowl, prepare a marinade by mixing curds, ginger-garlic paste, selected masalas and salt. Prepare a tempering of turmeric in mustard oil and pour it over the marinade. Also, crush and add the fried potato pieces to it.
Now, start stuffing the hollowed-out potatoes with the paneer filling. Then coat them well with the marinade from all sides. Skewer them through the centre and bake them for around 10 minutes in a preheated oven. Once done, cut them in half, sprinkle chaat masala over them and serve hot.
