Here are some yummy muffins made with plums in the microwave oven. This is a good way to use up any left over fruits lying in your refrigerator. They are a perfect treat any time of the day and they are also a great tea-time snack.
Enjoy them as dessert too by slightly crumbling them and drizzling some quick fix rabri (evaporated milk and sugar combo) over it. Sprinkle chopped nuts and sprinklers for an entirely new experience. Please check below a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.
