If we decide to go on fast and we don’t eat anything for a week, then we would probably feel hungry, little thinner and maybe weak.

Kitchen secrets/Cooking tips

Microwave Cooking Tip

Covering: • A cover holds in the steam to tenderize the food, keep it moist and shorten cooking time. • A tight cover is ideal for foods that have little or no added water, like when steaming vegetables. Use a dish with a tight lid or cover with cling film. • For foods cooked in liquid, or which create a great deal of juice, make a gap in the cling film cover by rolling back one edge. This allows excess moisture to escape. Or use special microwave lids, which have slits in them. • Cover the dish with tissue paper while preparing "temper" or frying seeds like cumin, mustard etc. The tissue paper retains the seeds while allowing the moisture to escape. • While reheating patties, kachori or mathri, place absorbent kitchen paper underneath to prevent them from turning soggy. Absorbent paper stops fat splattering and absorbs excess moisture. • Not all cling films are micro-safe. If you are going to use cling film in the microwave be sure that it is marked as micro-safe.
