It's been full of events all along and I thought of relaxing by sharing some useful kitchen hints from my collection

When you have to cook pulses like 'chana'etc and have forgotten to soak them overnight,just put them in a flask full of boiling water for an hour.Do not fill the chana full leave space for it to soak just as you do normally

Add two pieces of raw potato to the curry or gravy to absorb excess salt and remove it before serving

Peel a beetroot and cut into tiny pieces.Dry well in the sun and powder it and can be used as food colour

Frozen vegetables will taste fresh by adding a pinch of sugar to the water while cooking them

To keep ghee fresh for a long time add a few fenugreek(methi)seeds to it
