Cook's Tip:
Fed-up with the pollution and tan it causes?? Here is some simple tip to cleanse your face daily. No store bought cleanser but your own kitchen essential item is gonna do this for you. It's Milk!! Daily, before you go to sleep, take a small cotton ball and little milk in a small bowl, dip the cotton in the milk and rub over your face in one direction(top to bottom direction). Now each time you rub it over, look at the dirt that gets stuck to cotton. This can only be wiped off with such cleansers but not just regular face wash. Try it and see :)
Always warm dry spices like cumin seeds, cardamom, cloves, etc. on a griddle before powdering. They will grind faster and the powder will be finer.
Whole cinnamon sticks gives a spicy aroma to food. Whole sticks are used and later removed. Ground cinnamon are normally used in baking.
