M/W Oven cooking is an easier to do Cooking compared to other(if u begin trying recipes using M/W.Oven, u will hate to cook with gas) and many don't realize that. I learned it few years back when I happened to cook without gas cylinders for a week. This recipe tasted so good that I thought to share it with u all.This Potato-Greenpeas Masala is an easy and tasty side-dish - which needs 10 mins microwave cooking-time only.This side-dish is the best combination for rice with sambar or Curd Rice or rasam or chapati. Enjoy Ur Meal!. BonAppetit!.
