MW Mushroom & Soyachunks Tomato Pulao

Microwave cooking makes the life easier, hope many of us will be totally agree with me, i cook atleast few foods through microwave oven whenever i feel like lazy to cook up dishes or else if am busy with household stuffs, coz they doesnt need our continous attention...Sterday for our lunch i tried making this delicious pulao using microwave oven with mushrooms and soyachunks cooked in tomato paste with our spices...Its quite a simple pulao eventhough its tastes fabulous with raitas or papads...This rice dish is quite a fabulous one pot meal prefect for both lunch box menu or lunch, we enjoyed a lot for our lunch with papads..Sending this pulao to Srivalli's MEC-Rice Dishes gusted hosted by Priya& to Kiran's CWF-Tomato guest hosted by Sanyukta..
