Hasselback potatoes in a microwave
Author: Anjali Johny
2 medium potatoes
3 tbsp salted butter
1 clove of minced garlic (add more if you like it to be more garlicky)
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp Piri-Piri seasoning
Take two medium sized potatoes, wash and scrub them well. Now slice the potatoes thinly 3/4th of the way. Place these potatoes inside an approximately 2-3 inch deep microwave-safe dish.
Cube the butter and add to the dish, fill in some gaps between the slices with the minced garlic.
Microwave on full power in 2-minute increments, stopping and brushing the melted butter on the potatoes. In the last 2 minutes, add the smoked paprika and Piri Piri seasoning while brushing the potatoes.
The potatoes are done when you can stick a fork inside them easily. The time may vary between 8-16 minutes depending upon the power of your microwave and the size of the potatoes.
Top it with fresh herbs, poached egg, greek yogurt or any toppings of your liking and add more seasoning if you like
You can vary the amount of butter, spices etc according to your liking and you may use oil instead of butter. If you use unsalted butter, add salt separately.
Until next time!
