Food for Thought - Spices & Masalas

Food for thought by Maheela ... ! 

Sharing few tips and ideas with masalas and spices: 

1. To stay cool naturally this summer, these three spices can be added to tea/chai and will help in keeping headaches and digestive troubles away: 

a) Fennel Seeds (Saunf)

b) Green Cardamom (Elaichi) 

c) Turmeric (Haldi)

2. It is ideal to keep the spices in dark, cool places - avoid storing the spices above stoves as heat can cause spices to spoil more quickly.

3. If there are spices which you have not used in a while and want to revive the flavour, toast the spice in a skillet for 1 to 3 minutes shaking the pan frequently until it gives off the signature aroma.

4. You can make cajun seasoning at home! Cajun seasoning serves as a good rub for Meat, Paneer and Veggies. Just mix Oregano, Red Chilli powder, Black pepper powder, Onion Powder and Garlic Powder. 

5. For mild toothache, an easy way to cure is to pop a clove into your mouth and nurse it there - it acts as a mild analgesic.
