Baghar [बघार] (see onion) Not really a spice blend, but rather a cooking technique: Spices are fried in hot oil to develop their flavour. Usually, the procedure starts with woody spices (cloves, cinnamon, cardamom), next come fresh, watery spices to quench the temperature to about 100 degrees (ginger, garlic, onion), and finally the least heat-tolerant spices (cumin, fennel, ajwain); subsequently, the mixture is gently fried up to the desired shade of brown, and the recipe proceeds with the remaining ingrediens.

Deviations from the general procedure are common. Baharat [بهارات] (see paprika) A mixture common to flavour mutton in the countries surrounding the Persian Gulf; usually, the powder is shortly fried in butter before usage. List of cooking techniques. This is a list of cooking techniques.

The Real Reason Your Food Sticks To The Pan

But mornings met with eggs that stick to the pan, those are the worst. They're also all too common. Cooking in anything other than nonstick pans runs the risk of, well, having food stick. It's frustrating and might convince you to dismiss the cancer warnings and buy nonstick pans. Don't do this. In order to cook meals seamlessly in anything other than a nonstick, such as stainless steel, the pan must reach the temperature of 320 degrees Fahrenheit. If that terminology is confusing, watch the video below for a visual demonstration (along with a scientific explanation). Once the pan has reached the right temperature, you'll be flipping fried eggs with no problems.

List of hors d'oeuvre

This is a list of notable hors d'oeuvre, also referred to as appetizers, which may be served either hot or cold. They are food items served before the main courses of a meal,[1] and are also sometimes served at the dinner table as a part of a meal. If there is an extended period between when guests arrive and when the meal is eaten (for example during a cocktail hour), these might also serve the purpose of sustaining guests during the wait, in the same way that apéritifs are served as a drink before meals.

Hors d'oeuvre are sometimes served with no meal afterward. This is the case with many reception and cocktail party events. Hors d'oeuvre[edit] See also[edit] Media related to hors d'oeuvre at Wikimedia Commons References[edit] Gode Cookery Table of Contents.
