This is an amazing dish and actually so easy to make in the microwave. I made it yesterday in desperation, by browsing the site for microwave recipes as we ran out of cooking gas and as usual the gas company won't deliver for 3 days. (Wah India!) I have been averse to m/w cooking in principle but this dish (and TarlaD's magic) changed my attitude.
First takeaway, 'extremely tasty'. The baghaar (tadka) can be tatsed in every morsel! I did not have curry patta. But I added hara dhaniya. I used a little more than 2tbs onion, and I am now wondering about using saunf also, the next time. Best of all, my dish turned out looking exactly like this picture here!
But.... the powder. It equals 3 tbsp, and I used slightly less than half. It seemed like a lot. I feel it may take away the tangy taste of tomates if I used 3 tbsp. That is the only chaange I wd reccomend.
Great dish! Made my parathas in the oven-grill and then decided the gas wala can go take a walk!
