If you are fond of cooking then you must know these 5 myths related to cooking
Cooking is an art. Although many people cook food, but the taste is not in everyone’s hands. It is this skill that makes someone the best cook of the world. Those who like home food and often invest time in the kitchen of their home, are being told about 5 special things related to cooking that they should know. Actually, these are myths, which greatly affect the quality, taste and health of the food you cook…
1. Dough never spoils
Flour is stored in most people’s homes for several months. And next time whenever chapati or any other thing has to be made, most of the people use flour without checking. Because we know that flour never spoils. Although this is not true. The shelf life of flour is good but it can get spoiled if it is not stored properly for one time.
There are small insects (insects) in the flour, which give a different smell to the flour and after some time its taste also changes. Therefore, if you use the flour after a long time, then first check it thoroughly, sieve it through a sieve and smell it. Use flour only after that. So that you can avoid getting sick by eating rotis made from bad flour.
2. Pasta should be washed with cold water
Talking about making pasta, people often advise you to wash pasta with cold water before cooking. By doing this the texture and taste of pasta remains good. Although the truth is that pasta does not need to be washed. When you wash it, it reduces both its nutrients and starch.
3. Do not cook food in the microwave
You must have often heard about the microwave that cooking food in it destroys the nutrients of the food to a great extent. Although it is not so. Because when you cook in the microwave, your food is exposed to heat for a much less time than the food cooked on gas, stove or stove. Therefore, cooking in the microwave does not reduce the nutrients of the food, but remains to a great extent as compared to other mediums.
4. When to add salt to food
If salt is in the right amount in the food, then the taste increases manifold. However, there are many types of confusion about the time at which salt should be added while cooking. Some say that adding salt in the beginning increases the cooking time, while some say that adding salt later changes the taste of the food. Well, keeping in mind both the nutrition and the cooking time, if you are not cooking in a pressure cooker, you should use salt when the food is half cooked.
5. Blood comes out while cooking meat
Those who like to eat non-veg, it is not necessary that they also know how to cook non-veg. But most people have the illusion that the red fluid coming out of meat is blood. Although it is not so. Because when red meat is cooked, a red colored liquid comes out of it, which is not blood but myoglobin, which is a protein and is released during heating.
