Recipe: Potato Gratin


4 potato
2 cloves of garlic
a knob of butter
thickened cream


1. Rub your baking dish with garlic and butter and put aside.
2. Peel and slice the potato as thinly as possible. But if you have food processor then it will be easier.
3. Layer the potatoes in the dish, adding a little salt and pepper between layers.
4. Once you get your desired layer of potatoes, pour in thickened cream and sprinkle generous amount of cheese on top of it.
5. Cook in the microwave for about 20 minutes. 
6. If your microwave has a grill function, finish the gratin under the grill for another 5-10 minutes.

*For traditional way of baking potato gratin: Cook it in oven for about 1.5 hours at 160C
