Tips from the kitchen of an Indian homemaker

Today’s Tips

  1. Place some chopped onion in the vessel having burnt food, pour boiling water in it, keep 5 minutes and then clean.
  2.  Keeping a small piece of hing (asafoetida) in the same container will store chili powder for long time.

Beauty Tips:

  1. 6 Tbsp **almond meal, 6 Tbsp honey, 3 Tbsp almond oil (or enough to bring mixture to desired consistency) mix together in a shatter-proof bowl. In the shower or tub, massage the scrub into your skin in circular motions (after washing your skin with soap), concentrating on rough or dry areas of the skin. Rinse with warm water, allowing the residual layer of almond oil to remain on the skin. Pat dry. Your skin will be soft and glowing in winter.

** To make almond meal, toss a handful of raw almonds, with skins, into your blender. Blend for a few minutes until the almonds are the consistency of whole wheat flour.
