Keep it basic
I want to start blogging or recording the recipes my mother has passed down through the years. How can I go about it?
—Aneesha Singh, Noida
Start documenting the recipe, the ingredients, the weight and method. The emotional value of those recipes passed down by a mother should also be captured in the blog. There are always stories linked to dishes that have been passed down by our ancestors. Subscribe through a blogging website. Or put up the view—along with a recipe video—on social media. This is an effective tool to create awareness and share videos today. You could also create a YouTube channel. This can also help you generate revenue.
Is cooking in batches and freezing it healthy? What can I try?
—Lisa, via Email
Cooking in batches and freezing meals is ideal as there’s no time to cook on a daily basis, given the lives we lead. It’s healthy as long as the temperature and the way it’s done is right. Make sure you put the dish in an air-tight container. Bring it to room temperature and then freeze it or it could lead to bacteria formation. There are many options you can try: dal, chicken curry, soups, thick salad dressings and you can even blanch spinach and freeze it.
