How to Make Sev Khamni In Microwave

Recipe by Naiya Sheth: In the earlier recipe, we made instant sev khamni. But in that recipe, we used gram flour besan. Personally, I like chana dal's sev khamni more than besan's. So I tried to make it yesterday in a microwave. And it gave me the same result as the steamer and saved my minimum 10 minutes in the morning as I have to make it for my son's lunch box before 8 am.
