Making tea in the microwave is not difficult at all! In times of need, nothing beats this microwave tea 🙂
Desperate times call for desperate measures and a day without my morning tea is desperate enough for me to try anything. Like this microwave tea!
When yesterday night, my gas got over, I tweeted saying I will be cranky all day because I will not have chai, Kanupriya tweeted back saying make it in microwave. I must confess, I slept peacefully knowing I will manage my tea in the morning.
Necessity is the mother of all inventions they say and God bless the person who invented tea and God bless the person who invented microwave!
I always feel we underestimate the microwave. There is so much you can really do in it. Like roasting your dals or your peanuts in it. Or using it to make some curries or rice or sweets. I use the microwave to defrost and thaw dishes and I also use it to heat up things. I use it to make special curries.
If you pay a little attention to it, you can actually cook a whole meal in the microwave. And honestly, it doesn’t take much time too. Yes, you may need to take out the dish and give it a little stir occasionally, but still worth it. I have friends who make besan ladoos in the microwave because it is much easier than stirring the besan and ghee for the entire time on the gas stove.
Microwave cooking does require special utensils, but honestly, it is a good investment if you ask me. Of course, most of us use it mainly to just heat up dishes and that is fine too. Because you do end up saving a lot of time. Anyway, so the next time you run out of gas in the kitchen, don’t fret, because microwave hai na 🙂
