  1. I absolutely adore your recipes and appreciate the way you demonstrate cooking techniques. Could you please provide some guidance on how to make homemade bread crumbs using raw bread purchased from the store? Thank you in advance for your assistance!

  2. Can you please also write the instruction in text along with the videos. Sometimes the videos do not work (specially if I am checking this from work or some other place). If there is a written version, at least it helps me for the time being…

  3. This tip is awesome!! I am a bachelor in the US and I survive on stuff like upma, poha… especially during weekends. It was always such a pain roasting the Suji. Required a lot of patience which I almost always ran out of and eventually burnt the Suji.

    This microwave tip makes sure I eat delicious upma every other Sunday. Thanks a ton!!

    1. Hi Deepal,

      You can use the suji immediately — no need roast again. Just store it in an airtight container on your pantry shelf. If you really don’t use it that often, you can even store it in the refrigerator. Make sure it comes to room temp before using.

  5. Dear Ladies

    I love the time-saving tips you offer and also that you make a concerted effort to keep your recipes lower in fat and healthier than the originals. I am the Grammy of a sweet little girl born in Chennai who is now 8. She loves your recipes and so do I. I am teaching her some of the methods you use and letting her help by grating carrots and measuring and grinding spices so that she is learning how to prepare her beloved Indian food. Keep up the good work!

  10. This one was an okay tip. Sorry…
    You guys didn’t mention about roasting on the stove on low to medium heat gives wonderful result instead of high heat. Also, you guys forgot to mention that people need to allow the sooji to cool down before storing it in a container.

  11. Hi

    Thanks for this excellent tip. I do the samething, but in a oven. Preheat oven to 200 degree F for 30 mins and switch it off. Now keep the store bought suji inside oven and leave it like that. You can take it out after 4 or 5 hrs. It doesn’t get burnt. And keeps the suji fresh and insectproof for almost 4 to 5 months. This is not only for suji, we can use any groceries, eg, toor dal, chana dal, moong etc.,
    During my visit to India, I get groceries from there, which likely to get sopiled here if we don’t use it immediately. If we keep in oven as mentioned above, we can save a lot of money and time. 🙂
