Cook's Tip:
Want to store ginger for more than weeks.. then follow this tip.. Slice the ginger and put in a vessel add water and keep it in refrigerator.. For every two days once change the water alone.. you can see ginger keeping fresh for more than two weeks..
To see if an egg is still fresh, put it into a glass bowl of water with a little salt. If the egg sinks, it is good. If it floats, it should not be used.
If you cook Indian food, you are bound to get turmeric stains on your clothes at one time or another. The good news is they're really easy to take out. Wash the stained clothes/kitchen linen immedeately in cool water and soap. Dry in the sun and the stain will fade to a very pale pink. Wash the article again and the stain will be gone!
