Kitchen tips and tricks



  1. Rub your hands in a stainless steel sink or vessel to remove the strong smell of onions or garlic.


  1. To make softer chapattis, take the flour, add warm water and some warm milk and knead the dough. Let it rest for 15 minutes before making chapattis.



  1. When boiling potatoes or eggs, add a pinch of salt to the water. This will help peel the skin easily later.


  1. To peel the skin of almonds, tomatoes or peaches, simply soak in boiling water for 5-10 minutes. The skin can be easily removed.



  1. Before deep frying vegetables or fish or meat, pat it dry completely on a kitchen towel or using a paper napkin. This will ensure that it gets fried properly and tastes better. Also there will be less oil splatter since water is oils worst enemy.


  1. To store fish longer and fresher, clean it, apply some turmeric powder, lemon juice and salt and put it in the freezer.



  1. Add a pinch of baking soda for any preparations using gram flour (besan) like dhokla, pakoras, chilas etc. This not makes the batter lighter but also is easier for digestion.


  1. Grate a whole coconut at a time and refrigerate/freeze it so it can be used easily whenever needed. You can use the grater attachment in the wet grinders to get it done easily. I prefer freezing as it stays fresh longer (upto 3 months). Thaw it for 5 minutes before each use.
  2. To boil a cracked egg, add some vinegar to the water and place the egg in it. The egg shell will remain inside.
  3. When you prepare butter at home, you get buttermilk as a by-product. Boil this buttermilk at medium heat, and you will get paneer at no extra cost.
