Microwave cooking

The basics of cooking in a microwave.

Cooking should be done only with the microwave safe vessels, we cannot  use steel or any other vessel.

Food can be cooked as well as reheated very quickly as well the 
reheated food will taste likely done fresh

We would recommend you to go through the users manual before you start  using your microwave

Time to reheat : For an average size meal of 1 -2 persons. Reheating  should not take more than 3 minutes. Take the food out and check on the food  every other minute. (approx)

To Boil milk , 250 ml it will take about 1minute 15 seconds, depending  on the microwave (approx).

To Make rice or briyani for about 2 cups of rice and 4 cups water it 
will take 15 minutes ( approx)

You can cook the raw vegetables before adding to curries by keeping them in a microwave safe dish and sprinkling water on top and cooking for about 3 minutes for 300 gms of vegetables
