Cook's Tip:
Place some chopped onion in the vessel having burnt food, pour boiling water in it, keep 5 minutes and then clean.
If you misfired with the seasoning (and we all do that sometime!) and your curry is saltier than you like, don't throw it out. All you need to do is peel and cut a large potato in half and add it to your curry. It will absorb the extra salt!
To avoid crying, cut the onions into two parts and place them in water for 15 minutes before chopping them.
