Simple Hacks That Will Make You A Master Chef 

  • Green Veggies: If you plan to make any green vegetable like spinach, then put a pinch of sugar in it as this will help retain the vegetable's colour. Or you can also add two spoons of milk to maintain the colour of the vegetable. 
  • Kale Chane: If you have forgotten to soak the gram overnight, put pieces of raw papaya along with the gram in the cooker. This will help the gram will dissolve quickly. Later, mix the papaya with the gram to make it more delicious. 
  • Too Much Salt: If there is too much salt in lentils, gravy or curry, make small flour balls and put them in. After the curry comes to a boil, take out the dough balls. Taste it, and you will find that the saltiness has reduced. 
  • Cottage Cheese: How to keep paneer fresh for a long time? To store, put it in a bowl and add enough water to it so that the paneer is submerged, then keep it in the freezer. The paneer will not rot for a long time. 
  • Paneer Sabzi: While making paneer sabzi, after frying the paneer, put it in hot water, leave the water and cook in the gravy for a while. Paneer will become soft and tasty. 
  • Gravy: To make tasty gravy, grind onion, garlic ginger, poppy and two or four grains of roasted almonds. Roast this paste and then use it to make any vegetable gravy. 
  • Meethi Chutney: If there is no tamarind in the house to make meethi chutney, dissolve the amchur in water and add salt, roasted cumin seeds, and jaggery or sugar. 
  • Aloo Paratha: Add a little kasuri methi to the aloo masala while making aloo parathas. This will make the parathas tasty and will keep you asking for more. 
  • Stuffed Sabzi: While making stuffed sabzi, adding a little powder of roasted peanuts to the masala makes the sabzi very tasty. 
  • Spicy Vegetable: If you find your vegetable spicy and hot (due to overuse of spices), add desi ghee/butter/cream/curd to it. 
  • Kuttu Ka Atta: Whenever you make poori or dumplings of buckwheat flour, add boiled potatoes to make them crispier. 
  • Roti: Do you like tandoori roti? What do you do to make it crispier? Here we advise adding curd to it to make it tastier. 
  • Raita: Do not add salt while making raita; instead, add it while serving. This will prevent your raita from tasting sour. 
  • Dahi Bhalla: Whenever you make dahi bada/bhalle, add rice flour to the batter to make it soft and suitable.

Takeaway Tips 

  • If you want to remove the lacquer in the bhindi, add salt and lemon juice last while cooking it. 
  • To protect lentils from insects, add a few drops of castor oil to them (they will not spoil). 
  • If the gravy has become sour, add one teaspoon of sugar to reduce its sourness. 
  • To make the gravy thick, add cashew or poppy seed paste to it. 
  • To prevent hot oil from spilling in the pan, add a little salt to it. 
  • Sprinkle chaat masala while serving pakodas; they taste more delicious than the regular ones.
