Cuisine Indian


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


  • 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.
