Yesterday was such a toxic day. I ended up craving for happy food, comfort food ko ba. At first I was thinking of pizza with the social team, then fries, until eventually nag end up na pancit canton.
But how will I satisfy this craving without a stove? Ah that’s where the handy dandy microwave oven comes in! In my first advertising stint we used to cook pancit canton using the microwave oven. It was Ressil who was on charge of this so I had zero experience cooking it pancit canton using the microwave oven.
Pero I really wanted to eat pancit canton kaya ayun, i ended up experimenting. I filled the cup 3/4 hot water before placing the broken noodles (so that it will fill).
I timed the microwave at 8 minutes but I kept on checking every 2 minutes. At the four minute mark i saw that the noodles were almost cooked and that I needed only a minute more.
After seeing that the noodles were cooked just right, I drained the water and added the oil and seasoning. And tada! My first ever microwave cooked pancit canton! Oh what fun it was!
How about you? Have you ever cooked pancit canton or any other meal using the microwave?
