This is Pav Bhaji with a difference, have made this in the microwave (most of the vegetable cooking), but the result was good
Prick the potatoes all around with fork and cook on High for 9-10 mins in the microwave and set aside.
Cook the rest of the diced vegetables in the microwave for 10 min on high
(use a lid which has vents or else do not close the microwave container with a lid whiile cooking)
Peel the potatoes and dice the cooked potatoes.
Take 50% of cooked potatoes and mash them with a ladle or with hand.
Take half quantity of the cooked diced vegetables and mash them in a mixer to a pulp and set aside.
Take oil in a kadai and heat it. Once the oil is hot add choppped onions and ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute...
Once the onions are cooked, add the chopped tomatoes and saute till the oil seperates from them.
