How to store the vegetables long term?

I have tried storing tomatoes, beans, peas, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, carrots in freezer. Just wah it, chop it and use it in curry. Take it out or defreeze it for 15 minutes before using.

Tricks for good taste:

  1. Do not overcook the veggies. I have cooked the vegetables for 1 whistle.
  2. Add spicy chillies for more spiciness in curry (optional)
  3. Green chillies can be avoided by using spicy red chillies in tempering/ seasoning.
  4. Use fresh coconut for better taste and quick grinding. However, dry desiccated coconut gives the same if soaked in water for 10 minutes.
  5. Add hing/ asafoetida at last or in tempering (adds flavour).

How to replace dry coconut (store bought desiccated coconut) in place of fresh coconut?

Tricks: Soak the dry desiccated coconut in warm water for 10 minutes or cold water for 15 minutes. Till the water absorbs.

How to replace standard cups with normal home available cup? cups in spoons.

1 standard cup = 16 table spoons.

3/4th standard cup = 12 table spoons.
