Microwave Potato Raita

Have you ever heard about potato raita?? i dunno whether u ppls know this..but i tried it out as microwave version for today's lunch with pulao...i often cook potatoes in microwave for my masalas and curries, microwave cooking take less time when compared to stove top cooking for potatoes, i finished making out this delicious slightly spiced raitha with potatoes, red chilly powder and yoghurt, tempered with mustard seeds...Delicious potato raitha within few minutes, we just loved it and quite different from our usual raitas we do with cucumber, onions or else with carrots..

2nos Potatoes
1cup Yoghurt
1/4tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Oil
1/2tsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt

Cut the potatoes as small pieces and cook with a cup of water and salt in microwave bowl for 5 minutes..drain the water and smash the potatoes slightly...heat the oil in a microwave bowl for a minute in high, add the mustard seeds and cook again for a minute...now add the slightly smashed potatoes to the bowl with red chilly powder and give a stir..cook everything for 2 minutes...take out the bowl and add the yoghurt, chopped coriander leaves and salt, mix everything well..

Serve as raitha with pulao etc!!!!

My mom made potato raitha when she visited us last time. I really enjoyed it. Looks great, Priya! I nuke the potatoes too. Really cuts down on the cooking time.

I use the MW to cook potatoes too - works out great. Haven't tried a raitha with it.. but love potatoes & curd so the combination must be awesome.
