Larger Fridge – Are you not eating fresh enough?

MM_Blog_Larger fridge

Game of Thrones is one of the most beautiful as well as brutal shows of all time. A character in the show “HODOR” meant nothing until it meant “hold the door” in the climax. Since then I can’t stop picturing myself being a HODOR to the refrigerator in my house during my childhood.

I have grown up obsessing over Hollywood movies and their fully loaded refrigerators. They are always stuffed with fruits, cakes, pastries, ice creams, juices, milk jars, beer cans, etc. but whenever I am hungry and HODOR my fridge, it all feels so boring. And a question pops in my mind “How do their fridge manage to have so much?” I couldn’t find an appropriate answer until I grew up to be a woman who started cooking and buying her own fruits and vegetables. That’s when I realized how different freshly cooked and refrigerated food tastes.

The journey from being a bulky, expensive, and luxury item to every common man’s basic household appliance, refrigerators are a blessing to today’s working generation. It is an important invention of the industrial revolution which came out as a huge technological advancement of present days. It offers ways to preserve food and other products in any climatic conditions. With the emerging industry of refrigerators and its availability in various sizes and capacities, it does make me wonder, are we storing more food than required? Are we cooking more than required?  Is this technology making us lazy? And why are manufacturers making 1000L+ refrigerators for households?

As I was researching our dependency on these machines, I could find all sorts of articles, guidelines, instructions on ways to preserve food and keep it fresh for a longer time. But rarely anyone talks about how to include fresher food in our daily meal. Amidst the busy schedule, people find it easy to buy and cook in larger quantities and store it in the refrigerator. They cook meals in larger portions and store in the fridge to simplify their work. It seems to be a conscious decision even after being aware of the fact that fruits and vegetables lose their nutritional value when kept longer for a few days. According to Barbara P. Klein, a professor of food science and human nutrition at the University of Illinois, some fruits and vegetables can lose as much as 50 percent of their vitamin C and other nutrients in the ensuing week, depending on the temperature once they hit the refrigerator.

In order to keep a balance in your busy schedule and fresh eating habits, keep these things in mind next time you leave home for your vegetable market:

  1. Plan ahead, make a shopping list to avoid buying the unnecessary item
  2. Look for fresh locally grown produce and vegetable vendors because these fresh produce has traveled less so retaining its nutritional values.
  3. Avoid buying more by planning your visit to the grocery store twice a week rather than once a week
  4. Before putting your raw vegetables and fruits in the fridge ensure that it washed and cleaned properly
  5. If possible buy a refrigerator thermometer and monitor your fridge temperature. Try keeping your fridge around 40°F
  6. Store all your cooked and leftover food in covered containers
  7. Make sure you keep the leftover food in the fridge only after it cools down and makes sure that it is not at room temperature for more than 2-3 hours
  8. Make sure you clean your refrigerator twice a month and discard all the questionable food items stored in it
  9. And last but not the least, understand the portion sizes of your family members and cook in an appropriate amount

I know a fully-loaded fridge does look appealing but it does reflect your eating habits. A food when stored loses its nutritional value, color, texture with each day is spent in the refrigerators. In order to eat fresh food, I have incorporated my vegetable vendor visits during my evening walks. This did help me in storing less, eating green, and not overloading my fridge.

With adulting, I have realized that those Hollywood movies characters were not into healthy eating and were too lazy to cook. With me getting older and realizing this fact now I find my dog being a HODOR to the fridge. Every time I open the fridge he does sneak peeks into it and thinks there is a lot for him to eat.

PS: Do you know on an average we HODOR our fridge 15-20 times a day.

Pickle it Right: Are you storing it well?

MM_Blog_Pickleitright

Shakespeare contributed most of the phrases and metaphors to the English literature which is commonly used in our daily life all across the globe. His artistic freedom authorized him to introduce many more idioms and adjectives to the language, just like the roadside Dhabha wala bhaiya loads my plate of Rajma Chawal with chopped onions, green chillies, and a variety of vegetable pickles.

In 16th century, he peppered his plays “The tempest” with a phrase:

TRINCULO:
I have been in such a pickle since I saw you last that,
I fear me, will never out of my bones:
I shall not fear fly-blowing.

I wondered what pickle he was eating that made him pen down this statement and the following conclusion, because I am sure if he had tasted an Indian pickle (Achar), his tide would have turned.

Personally, dreaming about “Achar” fills me with a euphoric feeling. It takes me back to my childhood summer visits to my grandmother’s kitchen, which had lined up big glass jars, filled with mangoes pieces soaked in spices and mustard oil, covered with cotton cloth, and soaked in the bright summer sun. These mango pickles were then packed in airtight jars. A carefully prepared procedure of do’s and don’ts was followed so that these delicious pickles can last as long as possible while retaining its true taste. (And of course, she used to add a ton of love too).

In India, three main types of pickling techniques are practiced. These are preserving in oil, vinegar, or saltwater brine, out of which the oil recipe is most commonly practiced. As these recipes have passed on from generations, so here comes the real question “Are we storing our pickles in the right way?” “Do you think you are the deserving heir of your family pickling techniques?” or “Are you ready to pass your family traditional pickling technique to your kids?

As most of the ingredients used in Indian pickles are natural preservatives, the amount and ways to use those preservatives play an important role while storing these pickles. Here are some tips straight from my grandmother’s diary which will help you to store your pickle like a pro!

  • While using oil as a preservative, you should always dry the fruits, vegetables or berries after slicing so that it releases all its moisture
  • Each slice of a pickle should be soaking in oil, which will prevent it from future air contact. You can ensure this by shaking the jar after filling
  • Always store your pickle in ceramic or glass jars
  • Make sure that your pickle jar is washed, dried, cleaned, and sterilized properly
  • Make sure you fill the jar to the brim and leave no space for air
  • Before closing the jar lid, place a makhmal/cotton cloth on the jar top. This further soaks any left out moisture inside
  • Occasionally, it’s recommended to keep your pickle jars in the sun for a few hours
  • Always use a dry stainless steel spoon to mix or to serve
  • Always store the jar in a cool and dry place
  • In case of pickles preserved in vinegar, avoid using metal lids
  • Add a desi delight to your Indian meal
  • karonda mirchi pickle Masala Monk
  • Homemade Kamrakh ka Achar
  • Homemade Tattaiya Chilli Pickle
  • Winter Special - Red Radish Pickle

As I dig into ancient Egyptian history and English literature, Cleopatra attributed her good looks to a hearty diet of pickles, but not to forget it was not just the good looks that made her the queen of the Nile. She was a great philosopher, mathematician, astronomer and knew a dozen of languages that made her so desirable. Pickle is like Cleopatra. It cannot be defined by just its taste and tanginess, it also carries a ton of healthy bacteria, along with a range of essential minerals & vitamins like B12, which helps in food digestion and provides antioxidants for the body. So why to regret tempting and drooling over a good jar of homemade pickle? Our love for anything in this universe isn’t supposed to be easy. But it should be worth it, so is making, storing & having a tasty pickle.

Before you enter your next pickle binge, do keep in mind that pickles have high levels of sodium and fats. Gorging it can cause an increase in body cholesterol level. So in order to keep enjoying your pickle, “eat your pickle like a pickle so you don’t end in a pickle”.

How to receive deliveries in Covid19 outbreak?

As you know we have started with special deliveries in Lockdown and are catering to Delhi and Gurgaon – after listening to numerous patrons we introduced a few items and a Stay at Home Menu you help you stay and inside and maintain some sanity and happiness while doing so.

Our boys are trained in zero contact delivery and are approved by the government for deliveries in lockdown – they use gloves, masks, etc – you do not have to go near them and they will keep the pack where ever you want them to – keeping a distance of course.

You get the package, sanitize the outer bag – remove the main Tub / Jar from the bag – sanitize it and let it sit for a while – wash your hands thoroughly wait for some time, chill the tub and then enjoy it. You can use these precautions and processes not only for Masala Monk products but for all kinds of deliveries edible or otherwise that you receive at your home.

Homes, where items are made, are cleaned several times a day and people wear hairnets, gloves, masks, aprons, etc while preparing the food. 🙂

So stay at home, stay healthy and order away from our Stay At Home Menu or simply from the Desserts/Cakes section and keep celebrating the lids.

Have you tried this Desi Sauce? It is giving Ketchup Run for its money

Meethi Amchur ki Chutney by Masala Monk

We Indians are known for the different variants of spices we use in our cuisine and we are proud to introduce these delicious aromas to the world. But the secret of using these spices are still locked safe with our naanis and dadis (grandmothers). No matter how far we travel and how many cuisines we explore, the Indian in us wakes up once in a while to crave for that favourite dish made by our mother or grandmother.

And when that hunger for desi food strikes, it strikes hard to make all your taste buds scream at the same time. Deep-fried samosa, kachori, pakoda, or paanipuri is all you can think of. All it takes for you is to make a quick run to grab your favourite bhajji or just shake up the hidden cook in you and fry some pakodas at home.

But wait. What do you generally pair it with? If your answer is ketchup or any random chutney you come across, then let me remind you about that the chutney which has the right amount of spices, saltiness, sweetness and tanginess in it. If the bells are still not ringing, let me tell you, if you are an Indian, you must have had this chutney at least once in your life and had thought that this is the best match for your deep-fried snacks.

Meethi Amchur ki Chutney or Saunth is what we call it, the authentic recipe of which is still kept in Indian homes and is the best accompaniment for any Indian dish, be it paranthas, dahi ke gulgule, mathis, or fried snacks. With such a versatile flavour, this desi sauce can easily knock all other international sauces out of the park. No other chutney can enhance the flavour of Indian food the way Saunth dose.

Being the most chatpata chutney, Meethi Amchur ki Chutney contains several Indian ingredients, but the primary ingredient is dry ginger powder, also called saunth and that’s how it got the name. Apart from holding the nutritional benefits of dry ginger, Saunth is a condiment which can be stored for a long period.

Meethi Amchur ki Chutney or Saunth is what we call it, the authentic recipe of which is still kept in Indian homes and is the best accompaniment for any Indian dish. Amchoor ki meethi chutney is very popular in North Indian households and you might come across it in street-side chaat and pakoda stalls. If your tongue is rolling already, waiting to make that chatkara sound post the first taste of saunth, here is good news for you. Masala Monk is all set to bring this Indian delicacy to your doorstep with our new Nani Maa’s Meethi Saunth. This authentic Meethi Saunth has been whipped up using a recipe straight from Nani Maa’s kitchen and is a must-have for those who love chatpata Indian snacks.

Meethi Amchur ki Chutney
The right amount of spices, saltiness, sweetness and tanginess to spark any meal

Why is Nani Maa’s Meethi Saunth better than any regular ketchup and sauce?

  • Versatile flavour: Be it paranthas, dahi ke gulgule, mathis, or fried snacks. Saunth has a versatile flavour and this desi sauce can easily knock all other international sauces out of the park. No other chutney can enhance the flavour of Indian food the way Saunth dose.
  • Not only delicious, but also healthy: Being the most chatpata chutney, Meethi Amchur ki Chutney contains several Indian ingredients, but the primary ingredient is dry ginger powder, also called saunth and that’s how it got the name. Apart from holding the nutritional benefits of dry ginger, Saunth is a condiment which can be stored for a long period.
  • Elevate the taste of your healthy diet: After bragging a whole lot about the chemistry between this amchoor ki meethi chutney and fried food, it will be an injustice to not tell you the healthier part about this chutney. For all those who believe in a healthy diet, you can mix this to your fruit bowl to assemble a healthy and tasty chaat. Don’t forget to try this with your good old shakarkandi ka chaat as well.
  • Homemade: Nothing tastes better than the taste of homemade food that are made with love and no preservative. Store-bought ketchup and sauces are generally adulterated, make it rather harmful to consume.
Saunth by Masala Monk
Use it for your fruit chaat or as an accompaniment to your favourite Indian dish

So whatever be your go-to evening snack, paanipuri, aaloo tikki chaat, dahi bhalle, papdi chaat, bhel puri, or fruit salad, relish it like a real Indian and take a generous helping from Naani Maa.

Cows with VR sets – Coming soon to a farm near you

Well, we all need a good ambiance at our workplace for better performance. Don’t we? While we, modern humans, have very conveniently customized our surroundings according to our needs with the help of advanced technology, here is something not all of us could have thought of.

Instead of artificially inseminating cows before age and breaking the natural cycle, why not use modern technology to make the cows produce more milk? As much as it is painful for the animals, artificial insemination (AI) can also reduce the nutrition of cow milk.

But then RusMoloko, a dairy farm in Russia, came up with this unique idea of making a herd of cows wear VR and send them on a vacation. Researches have proved that dairy farms around the world with a calm atmosphere produces higher and better quality milk. Now, sending the cows overseas for a vacation is quite a task. Besides the cows look better with those VR glasses on!

That’s right, technology can do wonders, but innovation is the key. This dairy farm has been using VR glasses, designed specifically for these dairy cows to reduce their anxiety and enable them to relax into producing more milk.

Source : MOSCOW MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE AND FOOD

Combining its years of experience in the dairy farming industry with modern technology, the team developed VR views in accordance with a cow’s vision. Did you know cows have a higher perception of the colour red but weaker tones of blue and green? Moreover, the virtual reality architects designed a unique program for simulating the feel of green summer fields within the cows. The cows are definitely in a happy place now, so are the animal right activist.

Now only time will tell how efficient and cruelty-free milk production would be using this and other technologies like these. Please do share your thoughts in the comments. Do share with friends who care.

Why do we care?

At Masala Monk, we believe not only in delivering the most unadulterated food products at your doorstep but also aim to eradicate the global issue of food additives. Cow milk is consumed by many, including a huge section of children and aged and if this VR project reaches success, it might reap interesting results.
