A step by step recipe to make Bateta nu Shaak (Potato Curry made Gujarati style) in the Microwave!
I first heard of this dish in a Tarla Dalal cook book and came across it again in a microwave cook book by her. It is apparently a Gujarati dish, basically potatoes cooked in tomatoes and spices. Sounded interesting enough to try and with MEC – Potato Feast happening, I felt its the right time to make it.
So let me take you through the step by step recipe today.
Peel and dice around 5 medium sized potatoes and microwave them on HIGH with a little water for about 4 minutes till almost done.
Keep aside and in a seperate bowl mix 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, 1/2 tsp jeera seeds, 2 pinches of hing, 1/4 turmeric powder, 2 green chillies slit, 1 tsp of chilli powder, 1/2 inch ginger grated and one tsp of oil. Microwave it on HIGH for about 3 minutes.
Add 2 medium chopped tomatoes and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.
Add 1 tbsp corainder-cumin seeds powder, potatoes and microwave for about 3 minutes.
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve with hot chapatis.
And this goes to MEC – Potato Feast and to Tickling Plates – Lets Cook Sabzi for rotis!
Love this – had this while I was at Ahmedabad recently, and tastes yum 🙂

Simple, easy & tasty dish!!
Making this in micro makes it more delish..:)
Simple and tasty..never prepare this in the MW though! I partially cook veggies in the MW to finish my cooking faster.
