Cook's Tip:
If you want to add curd (dahi) to any dish, it might get curdle. To avoid that, add a tablespoon of oil in the curd, mix it well and then add it to the dish, dahi wont curdle.
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.
