How to select baby potatoes

  1. Baby potatoes are the potatoes which are removed from the soil before they are fully developed/ grown. Due to this, you will find that baby potatoes have a sweeter flavour.
  2. Ensure that the baby potatoes are firm and free from dirt or any blemishes. 
  3. Check that the skin is smooth and doesn't have mild green patches.
  4. If you are buying them in packet, ensure the bag is perforated. Many times if the plastic bag is not perforated, it can cause a build up of moisture and that can negatively affect the potatoes.

How to boil baby potatoes

  1. To boil baby potatoes, boil enough water in a deep pan and add salt to it. Salt is necessary at this stage, so the baby potatoes absorb it well.
  2. Clean and wash the baby potatoes and them to boiling water without peeling. 
  3. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes on a medium flame. 
  4. Strain using a strainer and discard the water. 
  5. Cool slightly and use. 

How to make refried beans

  1. To make refried beans, we first need to soak the rajma. This is what rajma (kidney beans) looks like. Just as its name suggests, the kidney bean is shaped like a kidney with a reddish brown colour and a thick skin. It has a strong flavour with a slightly sweet aftertaste, a nutty aroma and a chewy texture. The kidney bean is used extensively in Mexican cooking, and also in certain Indian dishes. 
  2. Rinse the rajma, kidney beans in water 2 to 3 times. It is better to change the water from time to time while you're soaking or cooking the beans. Pouring off the water helps gets rid of the indigestible complex sugars that create gas in your intestine. It also helps to cook the beans thoroughly, until they can be easily mashed with a fork.
  3. Once the rajma is well washed, soak overnight in enough water in a deep glass bowl. Cover and soak. Store soaked rajma in the refrigerator in an airtight container and use within 2 to 3 days. Longer storage could cause an undesirable odour. Soaking rajma does not cause any nutrient loss but makes it easier to digest. Soaking before use is recommended for those with gastric troubles.

How to make salsa

  1. To prepare Mexican salsa recipe | Indian style Mexican salsa | fresh homemade tomato salsa | first brush ½ tsp oil all over the capsicum. 
     
  2. Pierce with a fork and hold over an open flame. Roast until the skin blackens from all over. You can even roast the capsicum in an oven by placing them on a greased baking tray. Roast them for 20 minutes at 200’C, rotate and roast them for another 20 minutes. 
  3. Remove from the flame, immerse it in water and allow it to cool. Another way is to place the capsicum in a food-grade plastic bag or place the roasted peppers on a cutting board, then invert a large bowl over the top of them. The bag/bowl traps the steam inside that will help in peeling them easily. Click here to learn how to make salsa in detail.
