Hello again!

It is not easy to keep blogging about food, to do it every week with gusto is like making a minor miracle happen, to people who do it with such assured ease and charm i tip my hat, you are all beyond awesome!

But then, getting back to blogging with some regularity is even harder after you take a break. . You start with misspelling your blogger account password several times before hitting it right by chance, your survival coding skills are beginning to fade away, and then suddenly you so miss the good company that you want to get back into the bus no matter what.

So here i am, i was trying to take life a little easy ( turns out, it wouldn’t work !) ,thank you so much for sending mails, messages, and flying over to visit me. For all the much appreciated loving thoughts you sent my way, i give you back potatoes! Roasted, Indian style, made in a flash, in a microwave oven ! Here we go...

Indian style roasted potatoes

Recipe

Red potatoes ( medium size) - 5 ( cut into ¼ inch thick rounds)
Crushed red pepper flakes - ¼ to ½ tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - ¼ tsp
Paprika - ½ tsp
Cumin - ¼ tsp
Curry leaves ( optional) - 10

Sprinkle salt and ½ tbsp oil over the potatoes, toss to coat. Arrange the pieces on a plate, and microwave uncovered at high for about 4 minutes. Open the door, after one minute, microwave again at high for 4 more minutes. Let it stand for 5 minutes. Heat the remaining oil in a small pan. When the oil is hot turn off the heat, immediately add cumin, followed by pepper flakes and curry leaves. When the oil is cooling down, add paprika. Transfer the potatoes to a glass mixing bowl, add the seasoning, and toss well to coat. Microwave at high for one minute, serve hot.
