This is a dish that could be done using both the stove top and also the microwave. While doing this in microwave, the time and the consumption of oil is reduced. A great dish that goes with Chappati and also with North Indian rice varities. If made a little less spicy, the kids will also love it for sure.

Kashmiri Chillies - 5 to 6 nos or 1 tsp of Kashmiri Chilly Powder.
