Crispy Dosas
To get crisp, golden dosas add a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds to the urad dal and grind it.
Cooking Rice
To avoid sticky rice, soak washed rice in water for at least ten minutes before cooking. A teaspoon of oil can be added to get separate grains of cooked rice.
Wrap Fruits&Vegetables
Wrap the fruits and vegetables in newspaper before refrigerating to keep them fresh for long.
Keep Water
Never discard the water in which vegetables are cooked, use it in gravies or soups.
Hot Oil
Add a Spoon of hot oil to homemade pastes of garlic, ginger or green chili, along with salt to make it last longer and taste fresher.
Cooking Eggs
Salty water boils faster when cooking eggs.
Over Salted - Quick Fix
Add raw potatoes to stews and soups that are too salty.
Beat Egg -Fluffier
A tiny pinch of salt with egg whites makes them beat up fluffier.
Cracked Egg
Add a little salt to your boiling water when cooking eggs; a cracked egg will stay in its shell this way.
Fish Descaling
Soak fish in salt water before descaling; the scales will come off easier.
Fish storage
If fish is to be stored for more than a day, clean it, rub with salt, turmeric and if liked, a dash of vinegar before freezing.
Hot rotis
A good thing about most rotis is that you can half roast and pile them and do the final roast just before serving
Idli
Do not beat idli batter too much, the air which has been incorporated during fermentation will escape.
Rice Cooking

When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.

Put flour in a large salt shaker. It makes sprinkling easier when you need to flour a pan or a board.
Add a slice or two of beets to meat stews to deepen the colour of the sauce to a rich golden brown.
