               When I decided to host the event for Srivalli's Microwave Easy Cooking,even I could not find a theme for the month,then Srivalli,herself suggested me the theme and I was thinking,paneer is a bit tough choice,still no other go! Any ways,its great that, many of you have thought so hard and put your efforts,to try/cook in microwave!


             I first saw microwave oven only after my marriage,at my MIL's place...Infact she is the inspiration for me,she tries many dishes,that they show in cookery shows,being a south Indian,basically our style of cooking...And also,who ever,relatives,friends come,they will be surprised that my MIL uses microwave oven...As she has so many cool gadgets, her microwave cooking starts from Corn flour halwa-which is the most famous amongst the visitors....,then rice varieties,fry papad,cook potatoes,make breakfast like steaming idlies,stuffed idiyappam(Another hit among us)-she has an idly steamer specific for this....,upma,sakkaraipongal,,payasam...not to mention her cooking of Corn in it!!!

            But inspite all these,my FIL says,she put sambraani for oven - means she doesnt uses efficiently! I will be thinking in my mind,aaha...then what about me...:)

            But there are some thing I learnt,that one should not be afraid to use microwave oven...there are so many cookbooks available,so easily you can follow the instructions and learn how to make different dishes in it..

            Now coming to the round up,I specially appreciate and thank the friends,who spent there time to try a dish in microwave oven,using paneer and sending over here:)
