Tips on cooking

  • To make 1 cup of dal, add atleast 2-3 cups of water, depending on the type of dal.
  • Soak whole pulses overnight and other dals for one hour before cooking.
  • Always add hot water to the gravy to enhance the taste.
  • Add 1 Tbsp of hot oil to the dough for making Kachories or Kulchas.
  • Always use heavy bottomed vessels to make desserts, in order to avoid burning.
  • Make desserts with full cream milk, to get thick creamy texture.
  • Whenever curd is to be added to the masala, it should be beaten well and add gradually.
  • Chop some extra vegetables, for next day stir fry.
  • Use the leftover dal water to make rasam or sambar.
  • Never discard water in which vegetables are cooked, use it in gravies, soups, rasam or sambhar.
  • Onions and masala are fried in the cooker body itself, raw vegetables are added to that with enough salt and water. Cook under pressure according to the cooking time of the vegetable. This method helps us minimise our cooking time, use of utensils and nutrients are also preserved.
