Cook's Tip:
If a curry is too salty, make little balls of wholemeal dough balls, put them in the curry and simmer for some time. These generally soak up some of the salt. You can then pick these up and discard.
When frying vegetables, add them in a hot pan with little oil and then spray some on top of the vegetables. This way you can avoid using excess oil
Tamarind is an excellent polish for brass and copper items. Rub a slab of wet tamarind with some salt sprinkled on it on the object to be polished.
