This popular north indian delight can be made perfectly using the microwave oven, provided you remember a few nuances mentioned here. Make the paste very smooth, ensure that you add the masalas and microwave for five more minutes to harness the full potential of the spices, and take care to discard the water from the marinade to make the vegetables less watery. The outcome will steal your heart and that of your fellow diners! what’s more, this is quite a robust recipe and can even be made with mixed veggies instead of mushroom.
