    Re: Modern Microwave Cooking

    A friend of mine gave me a recipie made of Banana which could be used as a snack, I made some slight changes to it and it turned out yummy wanted to share it with you all. Every one in the home loved it. Pls give it a try and your feed backs also.

    Yummy Banana:
    Total Cooking Time: (3 Mins, though the time might change depending upon the Microwave)

    Total Servings :1 (If you want more servings increase the Bananas)

    Ingredients: 1Banana prefrebly green Banana
    1/2 Teaspoon melted unsalted butter ot Ghee
    1/2 Teaspoon Brown Sugar or Jaggery

    Method: In a microwave safe bowl; Cut Banana into small pieces of your choice, sprinkle the brown sugar/jaggery on top and add the melted Butter or Ghee and keep in Microhigh for 1 min (depends upon the Microwave keep it more or less). I had to keep it for close to 1 and a half minute.

    After removing this from the oven I added apples cut into small pieces and dried grapes. It tasted heaven. You can avoid ghee/butter if you are so diet conscious.

    Hi all,

    Here I am sharing Sweet Potato Custard.


    * Milk-2 cups
    * Eggs-3
    * sweet -4
    * sugar-1/2 cup
    * salt-1 pinch
    * Cinnamon -1/2 teaspoon
    * freshly ground nutmeg or ground cinnamon for topping


    First of all Heat the milk and set it aside.
    Heat oven to 350°.
    Add Butter to 6-ounce custard cups; set cups in a large baking or roasting pan.

    In a mixing bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Add all the ingredients.Pour into the prepared custard cups.

    Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until edges are firm. The center of the custards will still jiggle a bit.

    Remove cups from water immediately and place on a wire rack to cool. Cover the cooled custard with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.Custurd is ready to serve.:thumbsup
    The custards may be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.:)
