Tips

• Make a small hole in the egg by piercing a pin before boiling it. You will be able to remove its skin very easily.

• Immerse the egg in a pan of cool salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh; if it rises to the surface, it is certainly quite old.
• Garlic skin comes off easily if the garlic cloves are slightly warmed before peeling.
• Avoid the use of ghee. If it is necessary, substitute it with canola oil. Even for making halwa, you can partly substitute it with oil.
• To keep the chillies fresh for a longer time, remove the stems before storing.
• To preserve green peas, keep them in a polythene bag in the freezer.
• Place a betel (paan) leaf over the leftover idli and dosa batter to prevent them from becoming sour.
• Do not beat idli batter too much, the air of which has been incorporated during fermentation will escape.
• If you add half a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds to the lentil and rice mixture while soaking, dosas will be more crisp.
• To ripen fruits, wrap them in newspaper and put in a warm place for 2-3 days. The ethylene gas they emit will make them ripe.
• Avoid deep frying. Substitute deep frying with stir frying or even bake. Don't pour the oil, but make a habit of spraying the oil in utensil for cooking. Heat the utensil first, then add oil. This way oil spreads well. You will use less oil this way.
