Moghul Microwave: Cooking Indian Food the Modern Way by Julie Sahni — If pairing cookery of the Moghuls — Muslims of
Mongolian, Turkish and Persian origin who wielded power in
India from the 16th to 19th centuries — with the modern
microwave oven seems incongruous, Sahni (Indian Cooking)
makes the partnership work. She instructs readers in
microwave techniques and speeds the preparation of
exotically flavorful Indian food. "Microwave Indian cooking
is much the same as stove-top Indian cooking, only faster,
neater, and healthier," the author argues, showing us how
the microwave can conjure up some snack foods--puppadum, or
toasted lentil wafers — and classics such as Bombay sweetish-soursic
garlic lentils, scallops with cucumber in coconut sauce,
tomato basmati pilaf and pistachio fudge, all of which can,
without undue strain, become habit-forming. Included are a
section devoted to the preparation of nonalcoholic beverages
(e.g., monsoon cooler), as well as a few startling
cocktails, and information on where and how to purchase
spices, herbs and other specialized ingredients in the U.S.

Quick Home-Cooked Meals: Letting Your Microwave Work for
You (In 30 Minutes or Less) by Maryann Zepp
— You want more control over your own and your family's
eating. But you still have only limited time for cooking.
You'll be tempted to return to your old practice of picking
up pre-cooked food on the way home--unless you can find
recipes and hints that match your schedule. Quick
Home-Cooked Meals is a cookbook that will show you how
to manage it all. It is a collection of recipes that are
simple, tasty, nutritious, and fast. Most can be made in 30
minutes or less. Learn how to let your microwave make meals,
not just heat leftovers. Follow the Menu-Planning Guide for
balanced, full meals — in minutes.
Microwave Cookbook and Primer by Maryann Zepp — Zepp, a home economist who develops new products for a food company, offers a highly readable beginner's guide to microwave cookery, with bold-faced listings of ingredients that stand out clearly from brief, lucid directions. Novices will find reasonable explanations for a variety of
functions from defrosting a frozen cake to selecting equipment. Unfortunately, much of the standard
repertoire sausage-macaroni skillet, creamed dried beef, meatballs and tomato sauce, jiffy tuna
casserole will interest only the most timid of cooks. Also, considering that the oven itself is a timesaver, there is a disappointing reliance on convenience foods, as in the green-bean bake,
ham and cheese casserole, fast-and-fluffy orange pie and pina
colada cake. However, a few dishes, such as crab quiche or individual salmon loaves, demonstrate that microwaved food can be interesting.
It is a very good cookbook and I have yet to find a recipe that didn't turn out as it was supposed to.—Norm Peterson, Arizona
