Batata Humman - Microwave Version

Batata Humman is a delicious curry prepared with potatoes,coconut and tomatoes, this dish is quite famous in Mangalore and prefect side dish to serve along with paratha,rotis,pulkhas also along with rice..I came across this dish at great chef Sanjeev Kapoor's space which sounds absolutely easy for me since i was searching something new to serve along with rotis for our tonite's dinner..I prepared this delicious side dish using microwave oven as this dish goes truly for a simple preparation..Its tooks less than half an hour in microwave oven anyhow the cooking time depends upon the power of ur microwave oven..The addition of the coconut oil enhance the flavour of this beautiful dish and we guys completely fallen in love with this curry....Sending this curry to Srivalli's MEC-Curries & Gravies..

Batata Humman

4nos Potatoes (skinned & cubed)
1cup Coconut (grated)
5nos Dry red chillies
3nos Tomatoes
1tsp Tamarind pulp
1/2tsp Asafoetida powder
2tsp Coconut oil

Cook the cubed potatoes with a cup of water in high temperature for 10minutes in microwave safe bowl..once the potatoes turns soft, strain the water and keep aside..Dry roast the dry red chillies for 3 minutes, grind now the grated coconut, roasted dry red chillies and tamarind pulp,asafoetida powder and grind as bit coarse paste..Now take the cooked potatoes, grounded paste, tomatoes, half a cup of water and cook for 15 minutes in high temperature until the curry turns thick..finally add the coconut oil,give a stir..

Enjoy this super delicious batata humman along with rotis..
