Gratify ur Guests

Howdydo Amigos!!!These days i have been busy in devout :)Finally got some break from the routine grind,so here i am..I am not gonna post any craft,nailart,cooking,pictures 2day,but it's gonna be interesting :) Do u listen grouse from family members,that u plan very err when some guests have come in???Do u spend most of the time in the kitchen and regret that u haven't spent good quality time with ur loved guests??Even i hear the same,i love to cook when my best loved friends,guests come in.I plan to cook all combos from my kitchen and endup in spending most time in cook's room.Finally listed out some tips for getting done in the kitchen and bag the time for my guests who come in.Here i wanna share the tips with all the sous chef,who are like me :)As i cook Indian dishes the most so i have cook up the tips only for these Delicious cusine..

If ur guests are coming in for one day,plan what ur gonna cook for the day :)
  • Cut all ur veggies,onions and pack all the ingredients together in a ziplock and writs down the names what ur using for and store in the fridze.when ur ready to cook take them out and drop in the hot oils.
Note: Never cut tomatoes and store with rest of veegies,it become a bit messy i recomend to put in a seperate bag or cut it fresh.
  • If u use tomato puree for ur cooking,home made puree is always the best than store bought.so make the puree and store it in a airtight container and keep in the fridze.
  • Grind all the masala,powders,ginger garlic paste a head before.
  • For snack time,we plan for a tiresome deepfried snacks..Never do that plan for a simple one prepare it before day and just keep all them together for a tasty snacks..Items which comes in my mind to make a example are Panipuri, Wraps , Sundal, Eggs
  • Coming to the breakfasts prepare the batter before..We always love to cook something spl for our guests for that we prepare 2 items..But what i suggest make ur one item breakfast so spl..Like for dosa make some masala before and serve masala dosa..If for idly make Tadka idly (these are just the examples)
 Guests are coming for a couple of days to stay,there should be lots of preparations not only in the kitchen,in every bit of the house..These small things allows u to spend more time with them

  • Clean n wash all the towels and arrange them in the guest room.
  • Arrange all the soaps,bodywash,lotions,shampoos,combs in the Bathroom
  • Line up all the comforters,sheets in the Bedroom.
Coming to the kitchen
  •  2days a head prepare for some snacks which can be stored for fewdays..That would be very easy and helpful for the snacktime..
  • If they have sweet tooth prepare some deserts which can be stored for couple of days like rasagulla,rasmalai tastes better for the next day..
  • Grind all the masala,powders,ginger garlic paste a head before.
  • Cut all the veegies and place in the freezer..Cut the onions n tomatos fresh which would give a fresh taste to ur curries..
  • Breakfast store some instant breakfasts like cereal,bread n butter,maggi.If u very helpful for the quick breakfast.
  • If ur preapring rasam r sambar prepare them in large batch because they tastes best for later also.
  • Sometime we fail in measuring the rice and we endup in having lots of left over rice many hesitate to serve leftover rice,no problem turn the leftover in to yummyy fried rice,lemonrice,tomato rice...See the magic ur leftover would be finished first.
  • Store eggs for sure they are time savers for the tiresome days..
So these are my tips dripped from my itty-bitty cooks brain..If u have any added tips plzzz let me know :)Wanna post all my yummyyyy pictures,don't know wat's wrong with my server not allowing me to post any pictures.Anyways don't skip to read the tips ;) I wonder this is my frist ever post with out a single picture..
