Peel potatoes, cut a thin slice from both the sides of each potato and scoop out the center to make a barrel. Place all the trimmings aside in a bowl.
Heat oil in a kadai. Deep-fry the potato trimmings till golden and crisp. Drain on absorbent paper.
To make the filling, heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan, add ginger and green chillies and sauté for a minute. Roughly chop cashewnuts, add to the pan and sauté for a minute and transfer the mixture into a bowl.
Add cottage cheese, ½ tsp chaat masala, ¼ tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder, ½ tsp garam masala powder and salt and mix well.
To make the marinate, mix together yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder, 1 tsp garam masala powder, ½ tsp chaat masala and salt in a bowl.
Heat mustard oil in another non-stick pan. Switch off the heat and add turmeric powder. Pour this tempering over the marinade. Crush the fried potato trimmings and add to the marinade.
Stuff the potatoes with the filling. Place the potatoes in the marinade bowl and coat with the marinade from all sides.
