Microwave Mixed Vegetable Kurma | Step by Step Recipe

After being in the drafts for many months this wonderful Microwave Mixed Vegetable Kurma gets published. Making a kurma in a microwave sound easy and quick to get done. Doing the 7 Day Blogging Marathon with 25 other bloggers is one exciting thing. But as always I plunged in without any preparation and have to cook them and post. Yes that fact it becomes all very hectic is another thing. Microwave Easy Cooking Event has come for a second round of gravy dishes.

Announcing the MEC based on Curries and Gravies, I ought to post microwave gravies right. So here I am with a dish that gets cooked quite well in Microwave. If you see I haven't updated my 365 days of Microwave Cooking with more of such dishes but will surely do them soon.

Step by Step to make the Kurma in Microwave.

Have the vegetables all washed, chopped into small pieces, keep them ready.

Potato gets microwaved for 7 mins, while coconut paste is ground and ready.
In a microwave bowl, take the oil and whole spices. Micro for 1 min.

Then add julienne onions, green chilies and microwave for 1 min.
Next goes the ginger garlic paste. Microwave for 1 min again.
Followed by tomatoes. You can microwave both for 2 mins.
 See how mushy the tomatoes look.

Using the ladle mix well.
Then add the vegetables.
Mix well and add Red Chili powder.
Saute everything and micro for 1 min.
Add the coconut paste (ground with fennel seeds)
Saute and cook again for 2 mins.

Pour water as required to get a consistency and for the vegetables to get cooked.

Microwave for 10 mins before removing it.
