Delicious Ratatouille!!!!!

Hey friends,

Today I was not in a mood to make as usual regular meal of Dal, Sabzi, and Roti. So I thought let's find some shortcut. And presto!!! I discovered something very new and fantastic.

I wanted to make Potato Wadges (Baked Potatos) but ended up with Ratatouille :)

Okay before going into the detail of it let's first have a look at the ingredients

4pc      Potato
1/2pc   Cabbage
6pc      Baby Carrots
1pc      Onion
1pc      Green Onion

2pc      Tomato
3tbs     Oil (Olive/General Cooking Oil)
1/2tbs  Black Pepper
1/2tbs  Dried Cumin Powder
1/2tbs Curry Powder/Garam Masala

  10. In an electric pot spread the aluminum foil evenly and grease it with some oil.
  11. Now gradually add Potato Wadges coated with oil at the base of it connected to each other.
  12. Over the layer of Potatos make the layer of cabbage evenly.
  13. Likewise make the layers of carrots and bell pepper.
  14. On this spread the cheese slices evenly.
  15. Over the layer of cheese add the layer of onion, green onion and tomato slices.
  16. At the top evenly spread the thin slices of potatos to cover the complete pot.
  17. Preheat the Oven at 430 F and place the pot for 25 minutes.
