10 Minute Microwave Spicy Potatoes

Hello! Hope you are all having a lovely week so far, here is a quick 10min recipe for a mid-week pick-me-up if you need one 😉

Have you been busy and struggling with time or finding no inspiration for your next meal? Here’s an idea for a side dish that might give you something to think about.

This recipe was requested by my colleague, Miss. C – we share our love for healthy cooking and occasional baking… we talk a lot about food, recipes, tips and ideas 🙂 The other day for lunch I made some spicy microwave potatoes that my mum keeps asking me to check out which she tried and liked

So here it is Miss. C, happy cooking and hope you enjoy it!! 🙂

Cook Time: 10mins                                                             Prep time: 5mins


  • 5-6 small Charlotte potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon of cooking oil – I’ve used sesame oil
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 fresh red chili (big stir fry variety)
  • some grated ginger – about half a teaspoon or so
  • quarter a teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • quarter a teaspoon of cumin powder
  • quarter a teaspoon of dried mango powder (Amchoor)
  • quarter a teaspoon of red chilli powder
  • some fresh coriander leaves
  • salt to taste

Rinse potatoes and chop into small pieces and add into a microwaveable dish or pyrex. Grate ginger and put the garlic through a garlic crusher or just grate. Chop the chili

In a separate little bowl, add the oil, cumin, turmeric, red chili powder, Amchoor, chili, ginger, garlic & salt and mix using your fingers to form a thick paste

Finally add the masala paste to the chopped potatoes and massage into every piece using fingers until its evenly coated

Cook in the microwave on high heat for 10mins. Once done add chopped coriander leaves and mix while hot to help the coriander release its flavor into the potatoes!!
