Today is my first day for Blogging Marathon #8 by Srivalli. I have chosen the theme Microwave cooking
Ever since my daughter joined college , its sort of chaos in the early morning at home. She needs to have her breakfast and lunch ready by early morning and You can understand the chaos.....:-) well......But with my wonder machine ..MICROWAVE....all is not that bad. Can prepare some on the dishes in less time and with much less effort too!!.
Pori/Puffed rice 1 cup
Onion 1 cut finely
Green chillies 2 cut
Roasted gram dhal/ Pottukadalai 3 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Black gram dhal 1 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Coriander 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Soak the puffed rice in enough water for 10 minutes.Squeeze it and keep it in a bowl/plate.
Grind the roasted gram dhal into a very fine powder
Cut the onion and chillies finely
In a microwave safe bowl, heat the oil for 1 minute in high mode
Now add the mustard seeds and black gram dhal to this. Mix well with a dry spoon. Heat it for another minute in the high mode for the mustard to splutter
Now add the turmeric powder,
onion and chillies, mix well. Heat it again for 2 minutes in high mode. At the end of 2 minutes, the onion would have fried well.
