Important cooking tips

  • Curry or stew is too salty – Put 1 or 2 peeled potatoes in to the curry and cook for 10 minutes and remove it,  if the salt is still not reduced, you can add cream or milk it will absorb the salty taste.
  • While grinding mint chutney, add little walnut, so the chutney will taste good and will not become watery.
  • How to preserve chutney for longer time – soak an almond overnight, peel it and grind it along with the chutney. It will act as a preservative.
