Jatpat Sukha Aloo (microwaved spicy potatoes)

One of my family's favorite dishes! :) Almost like comfort food with rice and dal. This potato side dish is super quick to make, and yummy to taste. This dish can be prepped well in advance and tossed in the microwave to cook. I am sure when I post this recipe on the blog, my husband will ask me to cook this today. In fact, Snehanshu can make this too. So all husbands out there, get ready to impress your wife with this easy peasy recipe:)

Peel and dice 3-4 medium sized potatoes in a microwave safe bowl.

Add spices directly to potatoes: 1 tsp. tumeric powder, 1 tsp chilli powder, 1 tsp. coriander powder, 1 tsp MDH tava masala, 1 tsp raw mango powder (optional), and salt to taste.

Add 1 tbsp. cooking oil and 1 tbsp. water. Mix the contents well.

Microwave covered for 8-10 minutes mixing the potatoes every 3 minutes.

Squeeze some fresh lime, garnish with freshly chopped cilantro and serve hot.
Serve with puris, rotis or rice!
