Quick Cooking : Microwave Sesame Potato

So we begin another round of BM, I just can’t tell u how much I love you valli for taking me out of my laziness and making me write for 2 weeks every month 🙂 thanks dear

So for the first week this time I have chosen Microwave cooking and the first post in for my own dear MEC Potato feast, sesame potato a dish I created on my own and I swear it came out one of the best aloo side dishes I have eaten so much so that mil has been asking me to make it again almost every other day these days 🙂

Recipe – Microwave Sesame Potato

  • 4 medium sized potatoes cut into thin strips
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp jeera seeds
  • 2-3 green chillies
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp oil

How I made it

  • Par boil the cut and peeled potatoes dipped in microwave for about 4 mins
  • Drain and keep aside
  • Dry roast the sesame seeds in a microwave safe flat pan for 2 mins stirring every 30 seconds. Keep aside to cool.
  • Take a large microwave safe bowl and heat oil in it. Add the mustard and jeera seeds and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes
  • Add the green chillies and the potatoes to it and microwave for another 4 minutes
  • Now add the salt, turmeric and the roasted sesame seeds and microwave for another 4 mins. At this stage I actually switched on the convection mode of the microwave but normal should be fine too
  • Garnish with fresh coriander and enjoy with hot rotis

And this is my first entry to MECPotato Feast being held by me itself, have u sent your entry yet?
