Common Cooking Mistakes
Salt Count in Food
Always add salt in small quantities in food. If you feel that the amount of salt in the vegetable should be one teaspoon, then add half a teaspoon of salt only. When salt is less in the end, then you can add according to taste as it can be balanced when salt is less, but cannot be reduced if it is too much.
Temper mustard seeds & cumin properly
When mustard seeds and cumin seeds are not tempered properly, it remains raw. Always temper the mustard seeds and cumin seeds by putting them on high flame and in very hot oil. When the sound of mustard seeds stops crackling, then add onions or spices. If mustard seeds and cumin seeds remain uncooked, the taste of the food will also be spoiled.
When the spice of the vegetable remains uncooked, the vegetable becomes watery and becomes tasteless. Putting any vegetable masala in hot oil and stirring it a little is not enough. Fry the spices till they leave the bottom of the pan and the oil. Especially it is important to remove the rawness of onions and tomatoes.
Black and Hard Chapatis
If after baking it is not turning white and turning black, then you are making a mistake while rolling it. If more palothan i.e. dry flour is used while rolling the roti, then the roti becomes black and crumpled. Roll out the roti with a small portion and sweep the dry flour with one hand while turning over the other, after that bake it on the Tawa.
These are some of the small mistakes which we often made while cooking. Try to correct these mistakes and be ready to serve everyone delicious food every time.
