Appliances
  • Avoid long, uninterrupted use of your blender. Such misuse can overheat the motor and possibly cause a breakdown.

  • Keep the mixing bowl from slipping on the countertop when using a handheld mixer by putting a rubberised mat or a damp cloth underneath it.

  • Place a piece of plastic wrap over the top of your processor's bowl before you put on the lid. After processing, you'll discover that the usually splatter-splashed lid is spotless.

  • Dispel offensive odours from your microwave by placing a thick slice of lemon on a paper towel and microwaving it on high for about a minute and a half.

Cooking Tips

  • To avoid browning of apples after cutting, apply a little lemon juice on the cut surface. The apples will stay and look fresh for a longer time.

  • While boiling milk, always add a little water in the vessel to avoid milk from sticking to the bottom.

  • You can also leave a spoon in the vessel in which the milk is being boiled at low heat so that it does not get burnt at the bottom.

  • Keep coriander leaves in a muslin cloth bag, in the refrigerator. They will remain fresh for a longer time.

  • Add a tablespoon of hot oil to homemade pastes of garlic, ginger or green chilli, along with salt to make it last longer and taste fresher.

  • Remove the stems of green chillies while storing them. This will help them stay fresh for long.

  • Store raisins in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh for much longer.

  • While using ginger and garlic paste in curries, always use garlic at 60% ratio and ginger at 40% as ginger is very strong and will make your dish sharp and pungent.
