Helpful Cooking Tips – Set 2

When we learn to cook or start cooking without learning, it is very helpful to know a few things in advance. They could help eliminate stress and waste of time and money. Here are some tips.

Helpful Cooking Tips - Set 2

  1. I usually add salt as necessary for every step. For instance, if I cook the onions and bell peppers first, I add just enough salt for these. Later as I add more and more vegetables and spices, I add more salt at that time.

  2. Time Management makes cooking effective and fast. Let’s say you are making Pasta with a sauce to go with it. You can start cooking the Pasta according to package directions, but in the meanwhile you can prepare the sauce.
    ~~~~
  3. It is important to use a Timer. Use the Timer for every step of cooking.

  4. Don’t overcook vegetables. After you switch off the heat, the cooking still goes on for a little longer. So stop cooking when the vegetables are cooked but still quite firm, say 75 or 80 % cooked, unless the recipe calls for mushy stuff.
    ~~~~
  5. Cooking time specified in the recipe is based on the appliances used for the recipe by the recipe creator. Use your personal knowledge of your appliances to adjust the time, if necessary. If not sure, use less time first. If the dish is not cooked right or enough, allow more time.
