  3. Add the curry leaves, chopped green chillies and tomato(es). Mix well and microwave uncovered on high (100%) power for about 3  minutes or till the tomatoes are cooked and soft.
  4. Add the bread, salt, turmeric and chilli powders. Mix well. Microwave covered on high (100%) power for about 2  minute(s). Cover and keep for some time before serving.


  • Chopped onions can be added in step 3.
  • When the microwave cooking time for a step exceeds 2 minutes, it is highly recommended the contents be checked and stirred at regular intervals to avoid burning of food.
  • Standing time is a very important step as it completes the microwave cooking process of a dish. Ideally, allow the dish to stand for about 5 minutes before serving.

Serve hot garnished with: chopped fresh coriander along with Onion Chutney (Pyaz ki Chutney)
