If you wish to hype this subji a little for guests coming over, take the subji in a serving bowl (microwave proof) cover it with grated cheese and microwave it for 30 seconds and then serve. If you do not have a microwave make the subji hot take it on a serving bowl and immediately top it with grated cheese and cover the bowl.
