It's been raining the past two days. Well can declare that a seemly winter is here finally!, though you can hardly call this very chill. As always, it rains in the night and by morning mostly it is just drizzling. The roads are really bad with full of water clogging all over. You really have to fight your way out at places. But when you past that and have the road a bit free and for yourself, you can really enjoy! The cool weather with slight drizzling, you can but only ride slow to enjoy the serene feeling.
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!
