7 wonders in the kitchen

1. Seasonings If you made a mistake with the amount or choice of seasonings, it’s okay, now you just need to balance the taste of the dish. It is too salty? Salted vegetable stew, soup or sauce can be saved with potatoes. Add a few coarsely chopped potato pieces to the pot and wait until they are cooked, then just take them out. Potatoes absorb salt very well. If you’re making a dish that doesn’t include potatoes, add some of the main ingredients. Too sweet? Acidic foods, such as lemon juice or balsamic vinegar, help balance the sweet taste. Too sour? Add something sweet like fruit, stevia, agave nectar, or honey. Too bitter? Again, acidic foods will help you. Sprinkle the dish with lemon juice. Got a tasteless dish? Add salt! Salt allows food to reveal its taste. Too spicy? Add something cold like avocado or sour cream. To avoid all the mistakes at the same time, add seasonings to the dish gradually and taste all the time. 2. Burned? If you have something burnt only at the bottom of the pan, quickly transfer its contents to another pan and continue cooking. And if the finished dish smells burnt, add some product with a sour or sweet taste. Or choose the right spices for this dish and start adding them little by little, stirring and tasting what happens. For burnt pieces of tofu or baked potatoes, you can simply carefully trim the edges. 3) Too much water when cooking cereals? If the cereals are already cooked and there is still water left in the pan, reduce the heat and simmer uncovered for a few minutes until the water has evaporated. Watch the process so that the cereals do not boil. 4) Strange salad? After you’ve thoroughly washed your lettuce leaves, be sure to pat them dry, otherwise the dressing will remain at the bottom of the bowl. You can use a special herb dryer or a paper kitchen towel. Roll the greens in a towel, grab the edges of the towel and shake it over your head a few times. You can also cook while playing. 5) Have you digested the vegetables? Overcooked vegetables can be made into a puree, paste, or sauce. Put the vegetables in a blender, add some vegetable oil, herbs and spices and blend to the desired consistency.     6) Have you overcooked the potatoes? Then the first option is to make a puree. Option two – cut the potatoes into slices, put in a bowl, pour vegetable oil, salt, pepper and fry in a pan until golden brown. 7) Oh, where are you, appetizing golden crust? The secret is simple: before you start frying something, heat the pan (for 3-5 minutes). It should be really hot – you should feel the warmth emanating from it. Only then add oil. Vegetables are best fried in a large pan – they need space, as they release juice during heat treatment. We all make mistakes when we cook. This is fine. Do not give up! A little skill, cunning, and you will succeed! Good luck! Source: myvega.com Translation: Lakshmi
