• Coconut milk when kept overnight in the fridge forms a white layer on top. This layer can be used as fat instead of oil for frying mutton or chicken.
• Add a little oil and turmeric powder to the dal before placing it in the cooker. It will get done in ten minutes flat.
• Adding a cupful of grated carrot or beetroot to the coconut while making coconut burfi will give you natural colouring and nutritional benefits.

• You can decorate desserts with one of the ingredient used in making it. Like a twist of lemon can go on a lemon pie, or chocolate curls can go on a chocolate cake.
• While buying lamb, look for meat with a fresh pink-red colour and a layer of fat which is creamy white in colour.
• As lamb has quite a high fat content avoid cuts with too much fat. But absolutely no fat will mean that the flavours will not come out well in the cooked dish.

• While buying a chicken chose one that does not have yellow skin or flesh.
• It is easier to cut chicken liver with a pair of scissors.

• Wash the dark outer leaves of the cabbage, shred and use them in soups and stews.
• To store leafy greens for a longer time, wrap them in a cotton napkin and keep them in the refrigerator.
• It is best to blanch vegetables in boiling water.
