Cooking Hacks and Tips
Microwaves have been around for some time and have evolved from gadgets for merely reheating food to preparing full meals in half the time. Exploring the capability of this handy equipment can be quite fun and quirky.
We all tend to leave our chips and crackers open overnight. One of the most annoying things to happen is a half-open lid because sealed boxes can be tricky like that. No need to fret about soggy chips or fried goodies that have lost their crunchy charm just reheat them in a microwave without overcrowding or stacking them on top of each other. Put in the chips together with paper towels and the moisture will be sucked by the sheets. Even brief heating can restore the crispiness with ease.
Our spices and dry fruits come with their unique aromas that fade over time. They say that half of the taste and experience of food is in its smell. Heat spices and dry-fruits that have lost their characteristic scent in the microwave for 15 seconds at full power and witness their revival.
Rehydration: Stale bread or dried-out-rice can be rehydrated in the microwave.
For Bread: Stale bread can be rehydrated inside the microwave by wrapping the bread slices with a damp kitchen towel. Place both inside the microwave for 10 seconds of high power heat, and you should get results. If not, do the same procedures for another 10 seconds until you reach the desired softness
For Rice: Place rice in a big bowl, leave enough space for a small bowl filled with water. Cover the big container with a lid and heat on full power for one whole minute and 10-15 seconds if necessary.
