Cook's Tip:
While boiling egg, add little salt in the water. It will help the egg to cook faster and the egg will not break.
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.
To preserve the colour of turmeric Apply a little ghee to the bottom and sides of the jar before storing.
