If a recipe calls for fresh made Paneer to make rasgullas is it OK to substitute with the paneer that is sold in packages in stores?
Query posted by : Alka on 23-Jul-2015

I have no idea of the paneer in the US. The important thing in rasgulla making is that the paneer should be made of cow's milk, and the less rich in fat the better.

how can i substitute lemongrass in a thai curry?

Query posted by : udita on 10-Jun-2015

I don't think there is a substitute for it, but you could look for and essence, or see if you can find dried ones in some shop that keeps dried herbs etc. A few drops of lemon may 'suggest' the flavour but not really a substitute.

while storing masala (chilli powder, haldi powder or dhanajeeru powder), my wife notices some small insects (they say it as "DHANERIA". Even after removing and cleaning them, they appear again. Please help with a solution

First of all they should be stored in air tight containers/bottles. If you live in a very hot climate I would advise you refrigerate them.

I bought ready made dosa flour form store. I mixed the batter as it told me in the directions, however it does not look like it had fermented, what can I do to make it light so dosas come out thin and light?

You could leave it to ferment further and if you do not have time, try adding some baking soda or eno's fruit salt--- about 1/2 tsp to a cup---and use immediately.

Good Morning Niruji ,

Hope you are doing good.

I have a query related CHAAT MASALA recipe posted in NDTV FOOD website.

Measurements for ingredients used in Chaat masala recipe given in
terms of "CUPS" n "SPOON".
I am finding it difficult as CUPS sizer may vary from house to house.

So, I request you to simplify this, and give measurements in terms of " SPOON".

Thanks & Regardz,

Taha, whether it is cups or spoons, you should buy a set of measuring spoons and cups, which are readily available in crockery stores. The plastic ones are very economical. Even the spoon used should be a measuring spoon and not one from your kitchen as they vary.
