Microwave Bharwan Bhindi

Microwave Bharwan Bhindi

I am a huge fan of bharwan masala bhindi but I used to make it so less at home because it just take too much oil to make it and I hate using more oil in my everyday cooking than one day I had a brainwave… why not attempt it in microwave. Mil said no I won’t be nice. I nevertheless tried to attempt and I was glad I did. The first time I did it came out a little drier to my liking but the next time I sprinkled some water on top of it while making it and the dryness was gone a perfect way to enjoy bharwan bhindi which is not oily too.

    Ingredients

    Bhindi
    300 gms
    Onions sliced
    2
    Large tomato chopped
    1
    Shahi jeera (caraway seeds) or normal cumin seeds
    1 tsp
    Oil

    To be mixed for stuffing masala
    Chilli powder
    1 tsp
    Coriander powder
    2 tsps
    Amchor (dry mango) powder
    1 tsp
    Tava fry masala (optional) 
    2 tsps
    Garam masala
    1/2 tsp
    Salt
    to taste

    Steps

    1. Wash and clean the bhindi and keep aside for drying, once dry chop the top of the bhindi and make a slit in the centre and add a little bit of stuffing in it, do that for all the bhindi’s and keep aside. Keep a little masala extra for the onions
    2. Put oil in a microwave proof dish (when u are cooking always try and use glass, plastic is ok for reheating for a while but never cook in it) add the caraway seeds to it and microwave on medium flame for about 2 minutes till the seeds brown slightly
    3. Add the onions and microwave on high for about 3 mins
    4. At this stage add bhindi to it, stir a little, sprinkle some water on the top and microwave on high for 5 mins. See how lovely the bhindi looks at this point

    5. Add the little masala kept aside for onions to the mixture above and microwave on high for another 4 mins
    6. At this stage add the tomatoes and microwave for just one minute or so. I like my tomatoes slightly fresher and undone in the bhindi if u don’t like that please add it at the above stage or u can skip it all together. Most people don’t put tomatoes in bhindi but I love them Smile
    7. And serve hot with hot hot phulkas

    Note– if u don’t have tava masala increase the quantity of coriander powder, aamchor and jeera powder
