Tips - General

  • Unless cooking khichidis, potatoes, etc. avoid cooking direct in the pressure cooker. Use the containers.
  • Add a piece of lemon peel to the pressure cooker water, to keep the cooker from becoming black from use.
  • Cover the containers when cooking dal, rice, etc. to avoid spillover.
  • Make extra quantities of chilli or garlic or onion pastes and store in freezer for quicker use.
  • Never overload a pressure cooker or add too much or too little water at the base. Exploding or burning out are serious accidents.
  • Always sieve any flour before making dough, for hygiene as well as breaking any lumps that may be present.
  • For soft Dosas, add some boiled rice to white gram and rice, while grinding.
  • To adjust salt when the salt is toomuch in curries add roasted rice powder.
  • If the curd is too sour, add 4 cups of water to it. After half an hour, remove the water collected on top.
  • For crispy dosas, add a teaspoon of toor dal gram and some fenugreek seeds while soaking rice.
  • For thick cream, cover the milk vessel with a thin muslin cloth and refrigerate over night.
  • While boiling eggs, put a hole with a pin on the rounded portion of the egg so that the shell won't break when boiling.
  • Keep boiled eggs in cold water for 5 minutes before pealing the shell.
