I always think certain dishes I should plan and cook, but procrastination has become my second name. Our renovation has come to some manageable stuff, still long way to get better. So I hardly can cook much to experiment. Of course, I offer that as an excuse! When Suma decided on Fresh produce for this month's Microwave Cooking, I thought I would do one of those gravies with vegetables. But then that has to wait. Meanwhile, here is yet another simple way of making potatoes combined with baby corns for a quick sides for rice or chapatis!
Before I jump on to the recipe, wanted to share that I have invited PJ to share her knowledge as a dietitian to talk about Nutrition for Children, do check it out!
Baby Corn, Potatoes Stir Fry in Microwave!
Potatoes - 2 medium
Baby Corns - 4 nos
Turmeric powder a pinch
Salt to taste
Red Chili powder - 3/4 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 -2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - 4 -5
Method to prepare:Wash and peel potatoes and chop into 1" pieces. Remove the husk from the baby corns, chop into same size as of potatoes.
In a microwave safe bowl, take the chopped vegetables, add enough water to cover it. micro for 5 mins. Stir in intervals of 2 minutes.
It will not be fully cooked, but drain the water.
If you are using the same bowl, wipe it clean, add the oil. Micro for 1 min for the oil to get hot. Add in the seasoning ingredients and micro for another min.
Then add in the drained vegetables, add salt and turmeric. Micro for 3 mins. Stir again, add in the chili and coriander powder.
Micro for 5 mins, stirring in intervals. Check if it is done, else micro for another 2 mins.
Finally sprinkle the garam masala.
This is mostly semi done, but I like that way.
Sending this to Suma who is hosting the Microwave Easy Cooking event, themed on Fresh produce!
