Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Janet, welcome here! Hopefully Jamie will come along with suggestions, but what I can say is that you need something acid. It will depend on the recipe, but vinegar (so many varieties), tamarind and green mango powder (called amchur) are three lovely acidic additions for dressings etc. Have fun experimenting! wave

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Priyanka,
I can't imagine any way to make something meringue like without eggs.
Custards can be made with without egg by thickening flour (usually cornflour) in milk, here is a recipe: http://www.geethaskitchen.com/2009/01/v … gless.html
There are recipes for cakes without eggs too, here is the list google gives: https://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en& … mp;bih=692

Good luck!

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,

I love cooking and love your approach to cooking!

I notice that your ingredients always work so perfectly and this will leave no room for any disappointments. Here is the question,

How do you start a new recipe?

Cheers!

Which is the correct recipe please?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Dear Jamie or anyone,

do you know of a way to cook natural rice QUICKLY? Like in less than an hour. It takes me so long, I can only make it on my day off, Ill never have time before work. natural and red rice, they both cook about 55 min to 1 hour and 10 min. The brand is Spielberger something, Demeter, eco-stuff.
maybe one of those rice cookers they have in Korea and Japan...

Redfox, if you put it to soak in the morning, it will be quicker to cook in the evening. Also, cooked rice freezes well, so you can make a big lot on your day off and then freeze portions, and then you just need to remember to take it out in the morning to defrost in your fridge! Hope that helps!

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I was thinking the same, but I was afraid it will bloat too much, get watery yknow. But I suppose it is quite a hard grain, it doesnt perhaps bloat all that easily.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I often freeze rice as Joy described. Haven't had problems with it becoming watery. crossed
