   Yes, you can try doing that but it would not take so much time. Microwave on HIGH till the cheese melts.

I was surprised how ‘non’ Indian this dish was, incorporating a roux and cheese. So when I cooked the spinach for the purée, I added some garlic and ginger, red onion, coriander powder, a bit of cardamom, and Garam masala to give it a Vedic flair. In the oven now.

Tasty dish, but can do without baking. Just make the sauce a bit thick and pour it over the boiled veggies. CB

Tasty dish, but I feel there is little need to bake it. Tastes just as good by pouring the sauce on boiled veggies.
