Masala Bhaat ( Microwave Recipe )

Maharashtrian food can safely be called simple yet intelligent. The ingredients are usually well-chosen, and cooked in a quick yet tasty way with minimal spices. You would even find a lot of single-pot recipes. Here is such a mildly-spiced rice delicacy from the kitchens of that state. It is quite easy to make, but you should ensure that each grain of the cooked rice is separate. Also, do not forget to stir it every 5 minutes for even cooking.
