General Cooking Tips

Check them out, learn something new, and share your best tips for surviving in the kitchen :

  • Adding few drops of oil / ghee to the rice before cooking it will prevent it from becoming sticky.
  • Use the excess dal water from boiling dal to make rasam. Similarly, after boiling vegetables if you do not want the extra water, the liquid can be used in gravies or for making chapatti dough.
  • When boiling potatoes or eggs, add a pinch of salt to the water. This will help peel the skin easily later.
  • To separate each string of noodles or any thin pasta, run it under cold water immediately after boiling and draining the water.
  • For making softer idlis, add some sago or cooked rice while making the batter.
  • Tomato paste or sauce can be used instead of fresh tomatoes. This saves a lot of chopping time.
  • Make ginger garlic paste in bulk and put it in the fridge.
  • Grate a whole coconut at a time and refrigerate/freeze it so it can be used easily whenever needed.
  • You can also freeze cookie and pie dough, egg whites and yolks, and vegetable trimmings (for stock) and use them whenever you need.
  • Sometimes all a dish needs is a squeeze of lemon or lime to take it to the next level. To get the most juice out of your citrus, roll it on a cutting board before slicing in.
