Simple Microwave Vegetable Pulao

"This is for the basic beginners who have just bought a brand new micro and want some food to be made tasty and quick in it. Well, others experienced with the micro can also give this a shot. Its a tasty meal. Enjoy! Here are 2 important tips for using a microwave: 1. Do not turn your oven on when it is empty because microwaves may damage the cavity. If you accidentally turn on the empty oven, leave a cup of water inside to absorb the microwaves. 2. Microwaves cannot pass through metal. Do not use metal or aluminium utensils in your microwave oven including utensils with metallic decorations around the rim as well as enamelled cookware. The utensil is still metal inside inspite of the enamelled coating. Have fun cooking!"

Worked part time as a Telemarketer in Oman in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. <br /> <br />2. Worked as a Certified Professional Tarotist (Tarot Card Reader) and done accurate predicitions for many people from different parts of the world, most memorable of which is the reading I did for my college Law lecturer and it came true. <br /> <br />3. Written nearly 1000 poems several of which have been published in leading newspapers, ezines and magazines both in Oman and India. <br /> <br />4.
