December hints are as follows:
- If using raw bananas for curry, soak them in plain buttermilk to get rid of any bitter aftertaste. It also cleans the fruit of resin.
- Make soft idlies (rice cakes) by adding some sago or cooked rice while preparing the batter.
- When you use large quantities of fresh ginger to extract juice, don’t throw away the remaining fibrous pulp. Dry it in shade and store it in an airtight container. Use it when you brew tea and enjoy the flavor of ginger tea.
