Tips to cook faster for Working women

I'm housewifing right now, but when I was working in Bangalore I used to cook breakfast and lunch in the morning before going to office. And when i say breakfast it was not cornflakes or bread butter jam,,,proper nashta....These are the things that I learned over to period of 2 yrs that helps me to cook fast and not slog in the kitchen.

  1. When you buy your vegetables, try to clean and store them individually in tupperware boxes (freezer mate).
  2. Store those tupperware boxes on top in which the vegetables are more perishable than the others.
  3. I have bought green chille box & onion box from Tupperware, the shape of the boxes resemble the vegetable....its super cute.........
  4. For the next days cooking, I usually after dinner time while watching TV...peel the required onion, garlic, chop the tomatoes,  chop the vegetables and clean the green leafy vegetables...so its easier to cook...saves a lot time..believe me...
  5. If I have guest coming over for lunch/ dinner.. i make a paste of onion & tomato, ginger-garlic paste, tamarind pulp not juice, green chille paste..If I'm making non-veg i steam the onion till they are transparent and make a paste out of it.....
  6. Buy badam, kaju, kismish, pista etc and fry them a lil to remove any moisture left and store them in air-tight containers...You can just eat them always,,and use it as garnish to some turn some dull boring khana to a delicacy.

  3. hey...nice tips...cutting veggies at night is the best...would love to look at the tupperwares....click a pic n put them up....
    btw just wanted to say that do not use plastic to store the veggies...after you bring them home sort them and store directly in the compartments or use paper to store them...this way the veggies will not catch the plastic smell and will have longer life...plastic causes them to decompose early...

  6. oh tupperware is not a problem...i thought you are storing the veggies directly in plastic bags in the refrigerator and yes, unfortunately, there is no alternative apart from them :(
