  • Starchy potatoes like Russets or Waxy or all-purpose potatoes are the best varieties for boiling.
  • It's recommended that you boil potatoes with the skin on. This keeps the nutrients inside the potato during the cooking process.
  • Can use both stove-top and microwave method to boil potatoes.
  • Microwave method - In a microwave safe bowl, add water and potatoes. Microwave it for 13-15 minutes.
  • In a pressure cooker, add water and potatoes. Cook it on a stove-top for 3-4 whistles.
  • Adding salt while boiling is again personal preference.
  • Potatoes will cook more quickly if you cut them up into chunks before boiling.
  • Peel the skin once its cooled down.
  • Be careful to not overcook the potatoes or you’ll end up with a soggy mess and little flavor.
  • Potatoes are done when you can slide the tip of a knife or fork all the way through without resistance.
  • It’s important to drain the potatoes immediately after cooking. I have used russet potatoes for this recipe.
  • Cook the potatoes till they are soft. Then grate or mash them with a masher.
  • Feel free to add the seasonings of your choice.
  • Keep it mildly spiced if making it for children.
  • You can use fresh herbs instead of dried herbs.
  • If the stuffing is a bit dry, add few tablespoons of milk.
  • Green chutney can be substituted with pesto.
  • Add sliced veggies like onions, bell peppers or even avocado before adding the cheese slice to make it more hearty and flavorful.
  • If you don't have a Panini Maker, you can make this on the stove-top as well.
  • You can prepare this stuffing in advance and store in the refrigerator. 
  • You can also freeze this stuffing.
