Tame the liking for fancy cuisines

Monday, November 18, 2019, 14:29 Hrs  [IST]

ealising the need for green practices, fresh environment, and appealing ambiance, many of us are designing all-terrain kitchen fronts. Instead of cooking in a climate-controlled environment, it is important to boost our mode of preparation and lower our stress on craving the Indian-ization of the foreign palate or regional-ification of the Indian delicacies. For everything, we do the environment affects our ability to live and perform. Likewise, the food preparation exercise affects the experience from willingness, consumption to the aftermath.

You may love cooking food stories towards culinary wealth. India has always been a country known for its mystical cuisines. Food ballads with their inaccessible culinary secrets always created interest among the food lovers, chefs, and critics alike in recent years. When there are Indian ingredients that are yet to be explored, trials on their use skillfully in your cooking will amount to an exotic thrill.

It has been long that we have been agreeing to the fact that cooking is both science and art. The science process starts with ingredients and cooking methods to blend into amazing flavors to come up with an appealing edible portion of passion. While, cooking is also an art signifying an acceptable combination of taste, aroma, and colors through our senses. Let's list all the words that would describe cooking a little deeper in addition to Science and Art. Start and understand that these can be very personal too like Necessity (for all), Stressbuster, Medicine, Technology, Inspiration, Presentation, Infusion, Variety, Satiety and so on. Our eyes are arguably the most important gustatory organ.

Studies have shown that inefficient cooking contributes to climate change. Smoke inhalation, burning solid fuels releases emissions contributing to global climate change: carbon dioxide, methane and other ozone-producing gases such as carbon monoxide, as well as short-lived but very efficient sunlight-absorbing particles like black carbon and brown carbon.

Clean cooking can help address climate change by using more efficient cookstoves that can reduce fuel use by 30-60%, resulting in fewer greenhouse gas emissions and reduced impacts on forests, habitats, and biodiversity.

Let's tipsy on cooking the same dish: -
  • Try by changing the state of texture, cut, etc. of the ingredients • being used
  • Change the cooking medium – for e.g., try no oil •
  • Change the cooking fuel•
  • Change the cooking utensil•
  • Limit the ingredients, go local – respect each ingredient•
  • Don't invariably dig on calories, eat • balanced
  • Shuffle the order of the steps – respect • each step
  • Try the recipes, mom's way - cooking • whatever possible at home
  • Experiments are always successfully • made by amateurs or freshers
  • Use of leftovers is a craze for home food • only and not outside food

  • Dishing out culinary masterpieces is not all about passion and expertise but often what we want to cook, and feel like eating, is something simple. We have got used to the extravagant array of dishes available to be savored, but going down with limited ingredients and simple cooking methods will make it healthier and definitely enhance the home-made concept. It requires a sense of basics and a combination of skill, knowledge, and confidence. If we have fallen prey to the food online that I am afraid to report replacing homely food, we should tame our own mind to cook healthy and live life king size!
