  2. * Baking powder can be made by mixing equal quantities of sodium bicarbonate(baking soda) and cream of tartar.

    1. Hello Neha,

      i just reead this article on convection baking. Hope this will help you.

      In most Microwave[Convection] ovens,there is a button which says Convection and when you press that,it displays temperatures starting from 110C to 200C as and when you press it.If you want to bake in 180C,stop pressing when it reaches 180C and press start-It will start preheating and will beep when it finishes preheating-usually after 3-4 minutes.At this stage,you can open the MW and put the stuff inside for baking and again start from setting the temperature.Enter the time you want it to be baked for and Voila..it would start functioning..rather baking!!

    1. hey Priya,
      You can put the whole cake mould in the cooker without any water inside. dont put whistle on the cooker. you can add sand in cooker if get some, this will raise the temperature pretty soon. bake the cake for approx 20-25 minutes and check if its baked by insering a toothpick inside. Put a stand below the mould in the cooker and dont cover the mould.

    1. Hi, Neha

      We can definately make yoghurt at home. Take luke warm milk in a bowl and add 1/2 tsp of yoghurt(not sour) to milk. Mix properly n let it rest for 8-10 hrs in warm place to set. After 8-10 hours, yoghurt will all be set and ready to use.
