Totakay, Dadima ke

June 21, 2008

From here , found these rather useful:

More juice from a lemon
Putting a lemon in hot water before squeezing will give you more juice than usual.

Eggs will not crack
Pierce eggs with a sharp pin before boiling. This way you will prevent them from cracking.

Stop crying while cutting onions
After peeling onions cut in half and soak in water for about 5 minutes. Now, when you cut these onions your eyes will not water.

To cut hard boiled eggs smoothly
While cutting hard boiled eggs, the egg yolk often tends to break. To avoid this dip the knife in cold water for a few seconds and then cut smoothly.

Keep garlic skins from sticking to your hands while peeling
Soak the garlic flakes in a cup of water for five minutes before peeling.

Potato peel wafers
Potato peels can be made into tasty wafers. Immerse the peel in warm water to which a pinch of salt is added and then dry it. Deep fry till crisp and you have delicious potato wafers.

Peeling of Garlic No Problem! Mrs. Shahla Riyaz Bakali
For Garlic it is difficult to peel off. To do it fast, put some Cooking oil, and warm it in Oven or over stove, you will find it fast and easy to peel off.

Onions(Mutahir Yousuf Zai , Jeddah Saudi Arabia)
Once an onion has been cut in half, rub the left over side with butter and it will keep fresh longer.

Too many peeled potatoesShaheen Rehmani
Cover them with cold water to which a few drops of vinegar have been added. Keep refrigerated and they will last for 3 or 4 days.

    nice tips gudus… i’ve few points to make;

    its water that gets into the lemon when u put it in hot water, so on squeezing one gets the watery juice…

    one should be a swiss watch maker to make hole in the egg shell without beaking it…

    i’ll try the garlic tip… sounds good…
