Microwave cooking is always been so simple and easy when Srivalli of 'Cooking 4 all seasons' announced Microwave easy cooking event. Cooking in microwave for me atleast was to make coffee or to reheat the leftovers from the previous day/two. My friend L moving to Denver and initially they stayed in some motel, till they hunted for an apartment over there. She used to cook in the microwave and make our daily dishes like rice, dal, curry. This was that first time I came to know how useful it can be if we dont have cooking gas/stove. Well since then I have been trying my hands on m/w cooking.
Today am gonna prepare dessert with apples, and as this is a "cook any sweet dish" event also I google'd for m/w cooking and found this incredible recipe. I made some modulations in the recipe though, so here it is....
