How to Make Chicken Stock easy recipe

To make chicken stock, start with scraps of chicken or chicken carcasses or Leftover chicken pieces with bone.You also need onions, celery.Put the chicken scraps, onions, celery and salt in a huge stock pot with water. You can also use a little bit of chicken soup base to speed up the process a little. Let it cook.Bring to a boil and immediately reduce heat to bring the stock to barely a simmer.Simmer uncovered at least 4 hours, occassionally skimming off the foam that comes to the surface.
 


When you're through cooking it, remove the meat and veggies and strain the stock somehow. You can  use a yogurt strainer and a fat separator, which removes the fat by taking the liquid off the bottom. Any fine strainer will work. You can also remove the fat by cooling the stock.

Now you have delicious chicken stock ready to put in the freezer and which can be used in a huge variety of dishes. 

Tips: One trick that  you should not drain off the fat. Let the chicken fat solidify, forming a layer on top of the stock. This layer of fat acts as a natural protector from the air that houses bacteria. You can prolong the life of your stock by bringing the whole thing to a boil for 10 minutes every few days, again, letting it cool with that protective layer.
You can add ginger and garlic also while boiling.

Make a safer French fry

french fry recipe
Here is how to make French fry healthier. You know that french fries are high in calories but might cause cancer too. Researchers are in-creasingly concerned about acrylamide, a suspected carcinogen that forms when  carb rich foods such as potatoes are fried or baked at high temperatures. To reduce this risk, soak your spuds. British food scientists found that bathing raw, sliced potatoes in water for 2 hours before frying reduced acrylamide content by 48%. A 30-minute soak dropped levels by 38% and a 30-second rinse resulted in a 23% decrease.

How To Make Curry Sauce At home

Homemade Curry sauce recipe

Ingredients:
indian curry sauce
2  lb (900g) cooking onions
2  oz (50g) green ginger
2  oz (50g) garlic
2¾  pint (I litre 570ml) water
1 teaspoon salt
1  tin (8oz/225g) tomatoes
8  tablespoon vegetable oil
1  teaspoon tomato puree
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika


Stage One

Peel and rinse the onions, ginger, and garlic.  Slice the onions and roughly chop the ginger and garlic.
Put the ginger and garlic into a blender with about ½ pint of the water and blend until smooth.
Take a large saucepan and put into it the onions, the blended garlic and ginger, and the remainder of the water. Add the salt and bring to the boil.  Turn down the heat to very low and simmer, with the lid on, for 40-45 minutes. Leave to cool.


Stage Two

Once cooled, pour half the boiled onion mixture into a blender and blend until perfectly smooth.  Absolute
smoothness is essential.  To be certain, blend for at least two minutes.  Pour the blended onion mixture into a clean pan or bowl and repeat with the other half of the boiled onion mixture.


Stage Three

Open the can of tomatoes, put into the rinsed blender jug, and blend.  Again, it is important that they are blended perfectly smooth, so blend for two minutes. Into the clean saucepan, pour the oil, tomato puree,
turmeric, and paprika.

Add the blended tomatoes and bring to the boil.  Turn down the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, for ten minutes. Now add the onion mixture to the saucepan and bring to the boil again.  Turn down the heat enough to keep the sauce at a simmer.

You will notice at this stage that a froth rises to the surface of the sauce.  This needs to be skimmed off. Keep simmering for 20-25 minutes.  Stirring now and again to prevent the sauce sticking to the bottom of the Saucepan. Use immediately or cool and refrigerate for up to four days.
