Cooking Tips And Techniques

Tempering or Seasoning:
  Heat oil in a wok, when it is hot add mustard and once it starts to splutter add the rest of the seasoning ingredient one by one. In most Indian Cooking Seasoning plays main and most important roll. Seasoning the dish will enhance the flavor and add pleasing taste to the dish.

Boiling Corn:
 Add a pinch of sugar to the water when boiling corn on the cob helps to bring out the natural taste of the corn.

Over Salted Dish:
   If the curry or gravy or soup is too salty, add a dash of sugar and squeeze a lemon juice to balance the taste.
   If accidentally poured additional salt to the dish which is still cooking, peel the potato and drop in it, this will absorb the excess salt.

Good Fresh Eggs:
  To determine whether the eggs are fresh or not, place the eggs in a cool salt water (use big Water glass). If it sinks,then it is fresh. If it rise up to the surface, it is quite old (sometimes spoiled) throw it away. 

Peel outer skin of Potato in one step:

 After boiling potatoes, place them in a bowl of ice cold water just for few seconds, then grab the skin with both hands, twist and pull apart. Easy one step to slide the skin....

Overcooking is probably your biggest kitchen mistake
Overcooked vegetables are mushy and flavorless, overcooked meat is tough and chalky, overcooked grains are soggy and fall apart. In other words, overcooked food is bad food. Learn the art of taking food off the heat just before it is done, and let it finish cooking with its internal temperature. You can always cook it more, but you can never cook it less.
