Desi Mom Hacks!

We’re all short on time. It’s just a fact of life. My kids love a homemade meal every single night, but it gets exhausting! Here are some of my favorite shortcuts when cooking (especially desi food!)

  • Soak kidney beans for at least two hours before cooking, then cook in the pressure cooker
  • Use pre-made ginger-garlic paste
  • Grind tomatoes so they will cook down faster
  • Marinate different meats and freeze for quick weeknight meals (lamb chops, chicken wings, legs, etc.)
  • Make dough for roti in the KitchenAid Mixer! (This is my favorite hack, and I have not made atta by hand in YEARS!)
  • Brown chicken while making the base (tarka)

 

What are some of your favorite hacks to get meals on the table faster?
