Microwave Easy Cooking with Steamed Dishes - Round up and next Theme!

Early Sunday morning and I find myself with the task of gathering all the entries that were sent in! Looking at each picture, it strikes on how pretty each one looks. And not to mention the fact that the entries seem to be all my favorites! Its like all the participants conspiring to send in my favorite ones! Thank you!

We have two new bloggers joining in and enjoying the Microwave cooking! Lets welcome Arundathi and Roma. May you, going forward always cook in Mw and send in your entries. Having said that, I got to give ample excuse for not coming out with an entry myself. I know I can fabricate excuses. But the fact is, I was looking forward to this Edition to learn what can be steamed cooked! Hope the next theme is easy on us!

Before checking out how each one came out of the steamer, let me announce what we can do during the month of June. Lets bottle in the month of June. This includes Jams, Sauces, Pickles. And whatever else you think can be cooked in MW and bottled. But please the process has to be done in MW. You may use food processor to blend or do other things, but cooking has to be done in Microwave! Send in as many ever you want, by 30th June, 2008, with Subject line MEC: Bottled! Check out here for more details.

Now lets see the how wonderful the steamed dishes look!

Puttu has always been a favorite dish for me from childhood. Even now if I can get a chance, I
will devour the whole plate!

So I was very happy Divya coming in with a sweet Puttu. She does a easy job in making these with Idli streamer. And those cakes look so lovely!


When I saw Sowmya's entry, I started thinking that I am going to get all my favorite dishes this
time for the event. yes Dhoklas are my favorites too, though I have never made them myself.

I always fear I might end up with a big mass. But sowmya's inspire me to attempt! With peas this sought to be great!
