Cook's Tip:
Do not store milk in the refrigerator door, as the temperature is too warm - milk will keep much better when stored in main body of the refrigerator.
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.
