Tips for aloo bhindi

    Tips for aloo bhindi
  1. Always go for medium diameter ones, not too long, because bulgy lady's finger has very big seeds within, which spoil the delicacy of this vegetable.

How to select potatoes

    How to select potatoes
  1. Potatoes should be firm, well-shaped and relatively smooth, and should be free of decay that often manifests as wet or dry rot. 
  2. Avoid potatoes with soft spots or blemishes and those with a greenish tint.
  3. In addition, they should not be sprouting or have green coloration since this indicates that they may be undesirable in taste. 
  4. Sometimes stores will offer already cleaned potatoes. These should be avoided since when their protective coating is removed by washing, potatoes are more vulnerable to bacteria. 
  5. In addition, already cleaned potatoes are also more expensive, and since you will have to wash them again before cooking, you will be paying an unnecessary additional cost. 
  6. Since new potatoes are harvested before they are fully mature, they are much more susceptible to damage. Be especially careful when purchasing these to buy ones that are free from discoloration and injury.

How to select bhindi / ladies finger / okra

    How to select bhindi / ladies finger / okra
  1. Choose the fresh looking dark green coloured bhindi. 
  2. Avoid buying those which have blemishes, bruises and cuts or leaked internal stickiness, which might happen during transportation. 
  3. Always go for medium diameter ones, not too long, because bulgy lady's finger has very big seeds within, which spoil the delicacy of this vegetable. 
  4. Avoid the shrinked okra, which happens due to moisture loss on storage. 
  5. Check for any worm or insect infestation before buying.

How to select onions

    How to select onions
  1. Choose onions with tightly closed necks that are absolutely dry, avoiding those with a thick, woody centre in the neck. 
  2. The skin should be bright and shiny.
  3. If you notice dark, powdery patches under the skin, pass it up as this is an indication of a common mould which will eventually spoil the flesh. 
  4. Avoid those that are sprouting or have signs of mould.
  5. In addition, onions of inferior quality often have soft spots, moisture at their neck, and dark patches, which may all be indications of decay. 

How to select tomatoes

    How to select tomatoes
  1. Select tomatoes that are round, full and feel heavy for their size, smooth skinned with no wrinkles, cracks, bruises or soft spots. 
  2. They should not have a puffy appearance since this indicates that they will be of inferior flavor and will cause excess waste during preparation. 
  3. Ripe tomatoes will yield to slight pressure and will have a noticeably sweet fragrance. 
  4. The skin should be firm and not shrivelled. 
  5. Choose tomatoes that have a deep rich colour. Not only is this one of the signs of a delicious tasting tomato, but the deep colour also indicates that it has a greater supply of the health-promoting phytonutrient red pigment, lycopene.
