Baked Potatoes (microwave)

A delicious accompaniment with a grilled dish
Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Microwave Serving: 4 Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  • Potatoes, of uniform size       4 large (500-600g)
  • Salt and powdered Black Pepper to taste
  • Oil to rub the potatoes with
  • Hung curd      ĺ cup (150 g)
  • Salt      1 tsp or to taste
  • Powdered Black pepper 1/8 tsp
  • Celery (or herb of choice), chopped 1 tbsp


  • 1. Wash and scrub potatoes and wipe them dry. Rub potatoes with salt, pepper and oil and prick with a fork at two or three places, so that they do not burst while baking.
  • 2. Place potatoes on a microwaveable dish or directly on the rack. Cook covered at HI for 4 minutes, flip over and cook anther 4 minutes.

  • 3. Remove from oven and check for doneness (should be able to dent them with the thumb and forefinger, without much pressure). In case not done, cook for some more time.

  • 4. Grill uncovered, in the grilling mode (or in a separate grill if you donít have the grill mode) for 2-3 minutes so that the covering becomes a bit crisp. (a little longer if potatoes have cooled down.).

  • 5. Mix the curd, salt, pepper and celery.

  • 6. Make a cross cut, like a plus sign, in the centre of one flat side of the potato, place the forefinger and thumbs of both hands in each corner formed by the plus sign, and press. A place is thus created for the dressing. Place some dressing in this and serve.
