Cook's Tip:
How to Tell if an Egg is Bad: Place the egg into a bowl of cold water. The water level should be about 2 times higher than the egg. And Observe The Egg; Fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of the bowl and probably lie on their sides. Eggs that float at the surface are bad and should not be consumed.

if in any food item excess salt is present make small balls of wheat flour with water{like how u make for chapathi } put in the food item , it will absorb the excess salt. later u can remove those balls.

Avoid deep frying. Substitute deep frying with stir frying or even bake. Don't pour the oil, but make a habit of spraying the oil in utensil for cooking. Heat the utensil first, then add oil. This way oil spreads well. You will use less oil this way.
