2. Boil,peel and roughly mash the potatoes.
3. Now heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds.When it begin to crackle add chopped onions.Fry it till golden in colour.
4. Add the potatoes,salt and other masalas.Mix well and fry for 2-3 minutes.
5. Take generous amount of this mixture and fill the tomatoes with it.
6. Drizzle some oil on each tomato and bake them in a preheated oven at 400 F for 20-25 minutes.
