Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Microwave Aloo Mutter | BM5 | Post 1

And its time again to do Valli’s wonderful marathon, one week of theme based blogging and this time we chose the theme as microwave cooking. Now I always do microwave cooking off and on but the motivation for doing a 7-day posts on microwave came from the meal I whipped up in microwave when my gas wasn’t working, so when valli this time asked me to pick up a theme I kept wondering what till the last minute and finally picked Microwave Meals, though I am going to be cheating here and posting mostly microwave curries, sabzis and rice 😛

So today we look at Mircowave Aloo Mutter, which actually came out pretty yummm and hubby refused to believe I made it in microwave

Recipe – Microwave Aloo Mutter

What I used

  • 4 Medium size potatoes
  • 1 cup frozen peas thawed
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 tsp jeera seeds
  • 1 tsp dhaniya powder
  • 1/2 aamchoor powder
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp tava fry masala (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp oil

How I made it

  • In a glass plate or directly on the microwave tray keep washed potatoes along with a small bowl of water so that the potatoes dont get dried and wrinkled. Microwave on high for about 4-5 minutes till potatoes are done. Keep aside for cooling.
  • In the meanwhile take a big glass bowl, add the oil and jeera to it and microwave for 2 mins.
  • Add the onions to it and microwave for another 4 minutes till the onions soften and start to turn pink
  • Now add the tomatoes and microwave for another 4 mins till tomatoes look somewhat cooked
  • In the meanwhile peel and dice the potatoes.
  • After the tomatoes are done add the peas and all masalas and microwave for another 2-3 minutes
  • Add the potatoes and microwave for another minute or so and let it rest for about 5 minutes so that the flavors mix well.
  • Serve with hot rotis 😀

    Good one. I have never prepared gravy curries in the MV. Preparation of Sweets is totally a different story 🙂
