Just microwave it for 30 sec and you will see how easy it is.
Easily cut a pumpkin and remove its skin too by microwaving it for a minute.
If you wish to cut a whole pumpkin then it may require additional time.
Sweet potato chips
Making chips in microwave is super easy. Just cut a thin slice of whatever veggies you want like sweet potato, kale, broccoli or potatoes.
Add a tbsp of oil and salt to taste mix it up and line it on a microwave safe plate in a way that it is not overlapping.
Microwave for a minute. Remove the plate out and turn the slices and repeat the process until it is cooked and crisp.
It took me a total of 3-4 minutes to make the sweet potato chips. A crispy and chewy chips all ready.
