It's quite a while since I posted some Handy Hints,Kitchen Queries and Household Hints.I was doing it on regular basis but some how got too much obsessed in trying new recipes.So its time I start again atleast once a week,as I have a lot of collection to share with.This week's quota

When a bottle of chilli sause is nearly empty,add a little olive oil,some vinegar and seasoning to taste,mix well and use as a salad dressing

For a different milkshake take a tablespoon of mixed fruit jam or any fruit jam,add aglass of milk and beat in mixie.Chill and serve its just delicious

While making fresh salad cut tomatoes vertically and not horizontally to get firmer slices.If the tomatoes are a little soft,keep them in the freezer or in a bowl of iced water for 5-10 min before cutting

Malt drink powders like bournvita and coffee powder solidify at the bottom after long use.Pour a little boiling water over the hardened powder so that it dissolves.Transfer the solution to another bottle or container,refrigerate and use when required

When there is excess oil in any fried vegetables,sprinkle alittle gram flour over it which absorbs excess oil and makes the vegetable tastier
