Microwave Cooking tips

Microwave recipes are becoming very popular nowadays as they save a lot of time. Cooking in the microwave is same as cooking on the gas. We can set the power from low to high just like on the gas. Cooking becomes very easy and faster in the microwave. We can cook food in very less oil without worrying about the food sticking or burning in the fry pan. Microwave settings differ from company to company. You can master the art of cooking in microwave after 2-3 trials. Never use Plastic dishes to cook the food in microwave (other than boiling /roasting potatoes and eggplants as we remove their skin after that). It’s best to use microwave safe glass dishes for cooking. microwave cooking

A note from Author : 

The food which is available outside can not be as hygienic and safe as you can prepare it at home with love for your kids and family but at the same time the truth is that cooking becomes very tiring when you do it daily. So as much as I love to cook food myself for my family, I like to keep the recipe very short and simple yet the taste is amazing. This saves my time and gives me satisfaction too. Here I am sharing my recipes with you. Please try them out and let me know. Don’t forget to rate the recipe below. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Happy cooking!! 🙂
