There are many brands, versions, models in microwaves, but If you ask a simple question of How do you use it for everyday cooking , the instant reply is for heating refrigerated food, or as simple as reheating.
But I use it almost for all types of cooking apart from cakes, pizzas, like daily breakfast, meals .So let me share a few, and you can venture more than this.
- Rava kesari, or Suji ki halwa as known in north India
Recipe: Ingredients needed: Suji or rava- 1 cup,sugar-1 cup
ghee-1/2 cup, cashews few.kesar food colour.
Take a glass bowl , add just 2 spoons of ghee, rava, cashews, keep in microwave for 2 mints.
Take out & mix nicely with a spatula, till it mixes well& fried.
Now add sugar & water till the mixture is immersed fully, say 1 cup.add colour.
Again microwave for for 5 mints, closed. Keep it inside to rest for few more mints, take out & mix nicely adding the remaining ghee.
That is all, instant tasty kesari Bhath ready.
Impress your guests with an instant tasty sweet.
I make it even for big get togethers. No tension of lumps, no standing near gas & mixing, making the arms strain.
Enjoy cooking in microwave,
