Now that mom went back to India, things have been quite busy here. I cook in the mornings and evenings and I try to make healthy food as much as I can (with occasional pizza nights). To accommodate that, I bought few kitchen products recently and have been using them almost everyday and they either save me time or give me good, healthy food.
I came across this onion chopper at Ross. As soon as I saw this, I checked reviews online and wanted to buy it. I knew I’d rather automate the onion chopping than cutting one by one in my cutting board. I hate the fact that onion chopping makes me cry every time. This product helps chop the onions within seconds AND it can be used to chop soft veggies (like tomatoes etc). The end product is small cut onion that can be frozen for later use.
Note: Using this product will create a considerable noise. So let the family know before using this product. One time Chuttu was near me and held me tight when he heard the thunder 🙂
I have tried a variety of oils for cooking in the past few years. That includes vegetable oil, canola oil, sesame oil, and olive oil. I knew vegetable oil and canola oil are not really good for health and I didn’t want to use them for everyday cooking. When I came across Avocado oil few months back, I knew I want to try this. Then two sets of friends highly recommended me. Additional research was also positive. It’s good for health, it will not break upto 500 degrees, and it doesn’t have a small of its own. I bought this bottle in Costco and so far I’m loving it.
Ceramic Roti Warmer:
I came across this roti warmer in the local grocery store. Considering that we eat roti every day, I wanted to try this and see if it helps store the roti soft. I make roti in the morning and wants it to hold the rotis soft when husband is ready to eat in the afternoon and Chuttu is ready to eat in the evening. I also love its bright color and the way it looks in my neutral kitchen.
