micro risotto with microwave

What do you do with your microwave?

If you were a college student from the US, it would be used to make pop-corn.

If you were a resident of the UK, or US, it would be to prepare a frozen meal.

If you were a Japanese, it would be to warm up the left over from yesterday.

If you were an edgy Japanese, it would be cooking risotto.

Here is the recipe for a quickie risotto.
Put "fresh" ingredients -- veggie, rice, seafood, tomato paste, chicken essence, into a bowl. Seal it with a cap.

Microwave the sealed container for 6-7 minutes.

Here is your risotto.

This microwave-meal is called NEWS CHEF. When you purchase "a food kit from a store" you will be given a fresh ingredients (non-cooked) and a specially designed bowl. This bowl is designed in a way that it performs like a pressure cooker, allowing the raw/fresh ingredients to cook.

It takes only 10 minutes to prepare it -- drawback? One serving is tiny, and each meal costs also JYP1,000.
