Poha khichu – microwave recipes

After a hectic trip to India, it is being bit difficult to get back to the usual routine. So microwave is a life saver for me at present. This simple breakfast dish adapted from Tarla Dalal’s microwave cooking seems to be a variation of favourite Gujarathi delicacy usually made with rice flour.Sesame oil is used traditionally,but any other refined oil can be used.
