In today's hurried life it is very difficult to spare time to cook so many dishes in a single day, following the conventional methods. Microwave is a helping hand to me in kitchen . In less time & unsupervised manner, many tasks can be compiled with the help of it. Earlier  I use to make panna in pressurecooker, it took much of time and gas stove was occupied with one vessel.  While using microwave , i can do my other work in kitchen. For making 8 glasses of panna following ingredients are required:
