Salam to all and a very good Friday to everyone reading vogue-u :)

There will be no recipe today but mama will share some kitchen tips which are quite useful. Insyaallah by next week onwards there will be recipes to share with, mostly simple recipes to cater for the coming RAMADHAN................

TIPS TIPS TIPS..............

** Keep boiled eggs in cold water for 5 minutes, this will make removal of the shell easier!

** While cooking smelly foods, soak a cloth towel and let it dry in the cooking area. It will absorb the smell of cooking and keep the room fresh!

** When the noodles are boiled, drain all the hot water and add cold water. This way all the noodles will get separated!

** Add a pinch of sugar while cooking spinach and green leafy vegetables, it will retain its green colour!

** Never store an apple near a banana unless you want to ripen the banana in a short period of time!

** Sprinkle a bit of salt in the frying pan before adding chicken. It will cut down on the amountof grease splattering!

** To remove the coffee stain in the cup, fill it with any kind of soda for 3 hours!

** If you drop an egg on the floor, cover it with salt and leave it for a couple of minutes. Cleaning the mess will be easy with a paper towel!

** If you keep a piece of blotting paper at the bottom of the container, it will keep biscuits fresh for a longer time!

** To keep celery fresh for a long time, wrap it in aluminium foil and place in the refrigerator!

** To keep the chilies fresh for a longer time, remove the stems before storing!
