How to select carrot, gajar

  1. Carrot roots should be firm, smooth, relatively straight and bright in color. 
  2. The deeper the orange-color of the carrot, the more beta-carotene is present in the carrot. 
  3. Avoid carrots that are excessively cracked or forked as well as those that are limp or rubbery.

How to select onions, pyaaz

  1. Choose onions with tightly closed necks that are absolutely dry, avoiding those with a thick, woody centre in the neck.
  2. The skin should be bright and shiny. 
  3. If you notice dark, powdery patches under the skin, pass it up as this is an indication of a common mould which will eventually spoil the flesh.
  4. Avoid those that are sprouting or have signs of mould.
  5. In addition, onions of inferior quality often have soft spots, moisture at their neck, and dark patches, which may all be indications of decay. 

How to select potatoes, aloo

  1. Potatoes should be firm, well-shaped and relatively smooth, and should be free of decay that often manifests as wet or dry rot. 
  2. Avoid potatoes with soft spots or blemishes and those with a greenish tint.
  3. In addition, they should not be sprouting or have green coloration since this indicates that they may be undesirable in taste. 
  4. Sometimes stores will offer already cleaned potatoes. These should be avoided since when their protective coating is removed by washing, potatoes are more vulnerable to bacteria. 
  5. In addition, already cleaned potatoes are also more expensive, and since you will have to wash them again before cooking, you will be paying an unnecessary additional cost. 
  6. Since new potatoes are harvested before they are fully mature, they are much more susceptible to damage. Be especially careful when purchasing these to buy ones that are free from discoloration and injury.
