Cook's Tip:
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!
If your recipe has come out too salt (salty), try adding a little cider vinegar, ½ tsp at a time, to curb the taste
Sprinkle some salt in a frying pan to prevent oil from splashing.
