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 :)

    Ingredients

    Medium sized potatoes cut into thin
    4 strips
    Mustard seeds
    1 tsp
    Jeera seeds
    1 tsp
    Green chillies
    2-3
    Sesame seeds
    1 tbsp
    Salt
    to taste
    Turmeric
    1/2 tsp
    Oil
    1 tsp

    Steps

    1. Par boil the cut and peeled potatoes dipped in microwave for about 4 mins.
    2. Drain and keep aside.
    3. Dry roast the sesame seeds in a microwave safe flat pan for 2 mins stirring every 30 seconds. Keep aside to cool.
    4. Take a large microwave safe bowl and heat oil in it. Add the mustard and jeera seeds and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.
    5. Add the green chillies and the potatoes to it and microwave for another 4 minutes.
    6. 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.
    7. Garnish with fresh coriander and enjoy with hot rotis.
