Cook's Tip:
When a recipe calls for beating butter, plan ahead and make sure your butter is at room temperature.
When measuring wet ingredients like oil or milk, always place the measuring cup on the counter to ensure a level surface.
If the yogurt has become sour, put it in a muslin cloth and drain all the water. Then add milk to make it as good as fresh in taste. Use the drained water in making tasty gravy for vegetables or for basen curry.
