GOOD MORNING TEA !!


To prepare a good cup of tea is something which many of us always try hard and end up making it taste different each day. Every morning ,we happen to see someone or the other making a fuss about the tea. It is mostly about the excess milk or no flavour.Some people would be expert cooks, but when it comes to making a cup of tea, it would be a TRAGEDY!I suggest a 2:1 ratio of water and milk, or if the milk is to be reduced,2 1/4: 3/4 would be perfect .The above ratio makes 3 cups of tea for which 3 teaspoons of tea leaves can be added once the water and milk boils .Donot allow it to boil further.Sugar can be added as desired
THAT MAKES A GOOD CUP OF TEA WHICH MAKES YOUR DAY REFRESHING!!!

A pinch of cardamom and ginger in my tea is my favourite.

**Tea or coffee contains calories which gets converted to fat. It is better to have tea or coffee not more than 2 cups in a day . People who are  addicted to it can have it without milk and sugar

 
DID YOU KNOW THAT:
1. adding a pinch of sugar while cooking green peas helps in retaining its green colour.

2. to make soft and yummmy scrambled eggs,add about 3 teaspoons of milk to an egg
.

3. to avoid breaking of eggs , while boiling , immerse the eggs into boiling water.

4. while preparing kheer , add sugar only after the rice is cooked well ,  or else, the time taken to cook the rice can be delayed.

SOME POTATO FACTS:


a) if the salt added to the curry is more, you can add a piece of potato into it and cook.Excess salt will be adsorbed by the potato.

b) while chopping some vegetables, the stains caused can be removed by rubbing a slice of fresh potato over it.

c) discoloration of chopped potatoes can be avoided by immersing it in cold water .

d) mud stains can be removed from clothes by soaking in potato stalk.

TO PREPARE CRISPY FRIED POTATOES,

                  Cut the potatoes into very thin slices and wash them well in cold water

to remove the excess starch in it. Remove from water and dry it well with paper

napkins or a towel , so that the excess moisture on the potato slices can be

removed. Heat oil in a frying pan (low flame) and drop the slices one by one.Fry

it  till it turns golden yellow. Add salt and serve.             

                To make french fries ,  the diced potatoes should be boiled in water till it is cooked upto 70./. Then , fry them in oil .
