Jhatpat Aloo (Potato dish) in Microwave

                                                                     
This weekend I whipped up this delicious and quick aloo (potato) preparation that too in microwave oven. And believe me that was really quick and simple dish.


Serves: 2, Preparation time: 26 minutes


Ingredients:
3-4 Potatoes (cut into half)
2 Onions (medium sized)
1 inch Ginger
3-4 pods Garlic
2 Green chillies
2 Tomatoes (grind to paste)
2 Whole red chilly
2 tsp Jeera (whole)
1 Bay leaf
1/4 Red chilly powder
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1/4 Coriander leaves (chopped)
3-4 tsp Ghee or oil
1/4 cup Water
Salt to taste
Little olive oil


Method:
For the recipes that include for boiled potatoes I always boil them in microwave to reduce both  cooking time and gas. Wash the potatoes and prick them with a fork. Place potatoes in a microwave safe bowl filled with water, little olive oil (or you may use any cooking oil) drizzled over them and microwave on high for 10 minutes (do not cover the bowl). Check with fork, if not done yet then microwave it for another 2 more minutes. Remove from microwave and allow them to cool in cold water and remove the skin once it is warm and keep aside. 
Make a paste of onion, ginger, garlic and green chilly with little water. In a microwave safe cooking bowl put oil or ghee add bay leaf, whole red chilly, jeera and set it high for 2 minutes. Add onion paste and cook for 4 minutes in high. Add coriander powder, salt, haldi powder and red chilly powder. Mix well and microwave it in high for 1 minute. Add tomato paste to the mixture and mix well. 


                                    Added tomato paste to the onion and spices      


Set it in high for 3 minutes. Finally add potatoes and chopped coriander leaves and 1/4 cup water and cook in high for 5 minutes. Keep it in microwave for few minutes. Open and transfer it in serving bowl. Serve along with any bread of your choice or with jeera rice.

  18. looks nice and easy... very good color.. looks like it was made in a pot the traditional way
    Regarding your question about naan -

    After you have rolled the naan, sprinkle a few drops of water and place on the tawa with the wet side down. The naan will stick to the tawa. Turn the tawa upside down over a hot stove and let cook till golden brown spots start to appear. Turn the tawa up straight on the stove, flip the naan and cook the other side till you get a few light brown spots on this side as well.
    Alternately, you can shallow fry the naan on a tawa like a paratha as well.

    Hope that helps
