Chinese Recipe Tips

Chinese Recipe Tips

Chinese recipes usually call for very specific
ingredients and ways to cook everything. There are
many tips you can use to save time and money and still
have a top notch meal or add ingredients to make a
good meal great.

You can cut corners on rice, kinds of oil, even the
kind of meats you use. Many people take the meat out
of a recipe and call it vegetarian.

A delicious alternative to regular cooking oil is
sesame oil. Just a few drops mixed with your normal
oil or used by itself, sesame oil makes any dish have
a very unique flavor.

Shrimp cooked in vegetable oil tastes like greasy
shrimp but shrimp cooked in sesame oil taste like a
Chinese treat. Sesame oil has a strong and unique
flavor that many people automatically associate with
Chinese food.

It is higher in fat so if you are on a diet, it might
not be a good choice.

Rice is common in all kinds of Chinese recipes. If you
make a lot of Chinese food, you can cook a lot more
rice than you know you will use.

You can freeze this excess rice and use it later on
for fried rice. This will save you the trouble of
cooking a whole new batch and it tastes just as good.

Don’t be afraid to change recipes. If you have a great
recipe for chicken, try using crab or shrimp next time
or changing some vegetables around.

You might have just created your own unique recipe!
This can be a lot of fun and the more familiar with
Chinese recipes you get, the better your creations
will be.

 

Chinese Recipe Cookware Substitutions

So, you have got a great Chinese recipe you want to
try out but you realize you are not prepared at all
for the demands of Chinese cooking.

Well, there are many ways you can recreate what you
should have with what you might have on hand. This
goes for cookware as well as actual food ingredients.

An important part of cooking any Chinese recipe to
perfection is to use the right cookware. Many people
don’t own a wok or rice cooker however and will have
to use what they have in the kitchen.

A normal frying pan can work as a wok but it’s best to
use a very deep frying pan that is at least 1 and a
half inches deep.

Woks rely on oil and high heat to cook meat and
vegetables and if you use a shallow pan, grease will
get all over and might even spill out and start on
fire. That’s no good at all.

For rice, a normal saucepan will work but you need to
make sure you have a tight fitting lid. Tin foil over
the top will work in an emergency but can burn you and
is not recommended.

Many Chinese recipes call for a meat or seafood to be
breaded and deep fried. Without a deep fryer, you are
going to have a mess no matter what.

The deepest cooking pot or saucepan you have will work
but will probably splash all over no matter how you
try to contain it.

These are basic solutions but having the proper
equipment can really make a difference. An electric
wok is very easy to clean and can also be used to deep
fry.

A rice cooker really isn’t necessary unless you truly
can’t cook rice. Buy what you need and have fun with
your new recipes.

Fun Chinese Recipes for Kids

郁闷 / gloomySchiool Trip to Big Goose Pagoda, Xi´an

Fun Chinese Recipes for Kids

There are a lot of Chinese recipes out there that are
not only familiar but very fun to make. From egg rolls
to won tons, not only are they delicious but you can
get the entire family involved in the cooking process.

Kids love to make egg rolls and won tons and enjoy
having the freedom to put their own ingredients
inside.

A fun way to change around your typical egg roll
recipe is to let your family decide what goes into
them. You can use anything from cheddar cheese and ham
to peanut butter and jelly.

The fun part is the rolling. It’s a great family
experience to sit together and create something. Even
if it doesn’t turn out perfect, it’s the effort that
makes it great.

Won tons are basically smaller and differently shaped
egg rolls and are a lot of fun to make too. Even a 4
year old can make a won ton so families of all ages
can do this together.

Traditionally, won tons have ground pork, onions, and
special Chinese vegetables and seasoning but just like
egg rolls, you can mix it up a little.

Some cream cheese or frosting inside and some cinnamon
and sugar can make for an interesting treat that
everyone will like.

For older kids, you can teach them to make almost
anything if they are willing. They can help chop
vegetables, learn to cook rice, or even make a stir
fry with little help.

It can be very rewarding to have your family help in
the kitchen and it might even become a hobby or career
for them one day.

 

Good Chinese Recipes for Beginners

Choosing a good Chinese recipe can be hard if you have
never prepared much Chinese food in the past. With
ingredients you may not be used to and cooking styles
you are unfamiliar with, it might seem a little scary
when looking through recipes.

It’s best to start with something easy and fun unless
you are an experienced cook or you know exactly what
you want. If you absolutely love pot stickers, you
might try making those.

For most people, the best Chinese recipes to start
with are single course dishes. The easiest are usually
rice, a few vegetables and one kind of meat.

If you get more complex than that, you might have too
much going on at once and it can feel overwhelming.
It’s very easy to start some rice and cook your meal
while the rice is cooking.

Rice usually takes about 20 minutes and it should take
about that long to cut some meat and vegetables and
get them cooking. Stir fry is the easiest thing to
cook. It’s basically meat and vegetables seared over
high heat while stirring constantly.

When choosing a Chinese recipe, you should keep in
mind how many people you are going to feed. If it’s
just a meal for one or two, you can get a little
fancier and try a couple different types of sauce.

If you are feeding kids, you can’t go wrong with
something familiar like sweet and sour chicken. If you
try to serve up a bunch of Chinese bean pancakes, the
kids might protest.

It’s always best to start small and try something
familiar.

How to choose a credit card

How to choose a credit card

Credit cards have become a part of life for most
people living in the western countries. Itís becoming
increasingly impossible to avoid them, especially for
business men. So if it is the first time you are
seeking to enter into the world of plastic money, here
are some of the basic things you should look out for.

* First, compare the interest chargeable for all the
credit cards for which you are eligible. While the
rate may not remain fixed indefinitely, it’s always
advisable for first timers to go for the one charging
lower rates.

* Read the fine print, especially on the other charges
that may be charged on you, like late-payment fees,
annual fees, and whether there is a grace period which
is normally given before the finance charges kick in.

* Decide what limit is appropriate for a person of
your income. Also the fewer credit cards you have, the
better placed you are to track your spending.

* Compare the services and other features such as the
cash back incentives, or warranties, rebates and the
like.

* Check whether the card is widely accepted to enable
you to pay for your needs.

You will do yourself a favor by familiarizing yourself
with the following terms.

* Annual Percentage Rate. This is the measure of the
yearly cost of credit.

* Finance Charges. These are the total charges
involving the transaction. This is the period the
issuer gives you before he starts charging you
interest on new purchases. Note that not all credit
cards have a grace period.

How does the credit card work

MostOld Plastic money (project365 - 17/365)

How does the credit card work

If a caveman came back and made his way to a store
offering Point of Sale (PoS) payment mode, he would be
baffled by the ease at which Homo sapiens do their own
version of hunting.

In truth, the simple act of swapping a small card into
a terminal to effect a transaction would bewilder the
uninitiated, and not necessary the early man.

What happens?

How the payment is finally processed?

These are just some of the questions that even some
card holders don’t bother to ask, either to themselves
or anyone (it is a possibility that some store workers
don’t fully understand it as well), so you are not
alone.

Here are some quick hints.

Every time one uses a credit card to purchase
something, several industry players offering different
services then come forward to complete the
transaction.

Once the card is swiped across a PoS terminal, the
terminal electronically reads the cards holder
information and then through a phone line, it asks for
an authorization to complete the transaction from the
processing network which is responsible for
translating the information given at the PoS sale
point.

The data is then sent to the issuing bank to check
whether the account is valid and that the transaction
is within the allowed credit limits.

The network is then triggered to send an approval code
to the PoS terminal. The details are then saved at the
PoS which are then sent to the processing bank at the
end of the day which then pays funds into the
merchant’s account.

Yoga is not just doing yoga and executing the poses

Mrs. Bright SideDay 26The Way Things Ought To Be

Yoga is not just doing yoga and executing the poses.

Following these tips will help you.

1. Why not try private lessons? You can book some one-on-one sessions with a teacher in your area. Most yoga instructors offer private classes or can help you design your own program. This is a good way to get started. You can always take group lessons or practice at home after youíve had private lessons and learned the basics.

2. Listen to your body and be aware of your physical abilities. You don’t want to hurt yourself. Make sure the instructor understands your level of experience and any limitations you may have. Donít allow anyone to push you ahead too quickly. Remember, this is supposed to be fun and relaxing.

3. Find a yoga class that best fits your abilities. Talk to prospective teachers, and decide whether of not you can handle a program before you sign up. Itís very important to take it one step at a time. Try a few beginner classes before you attempt more vigorous classes. Donít move ahead too quickly. Allow your body to adjust to your exercises.

4. Eat lightly before practice. Wait at least two hours after meals before yoga class or practice. An empty stomach is best, but donít let yourself get too hungry to think. You won’t be able to focus on the poses or enjoy yourself during the relaxation or meditation exercises.

5. Find a yoga buddy. Itís nice to practice with someone and it will help reduce injuries. Itís also a great way to keep up your enthusiasm and interest.

6. Talk to your doctor and explain what type of yoga poses you intend to practice. Show your doctor pictures of the poses for illustration. Your doctor may rule out specific poses if you have high blood pressure, glaucoma, a history of retinal detachment, or heart disease. Make sure you follow your doctorís recommendations.

7. If you canít find a class that meets your needs, you can always practice yoga at home. There are many books, programs, and tapes available to help you get started. Search for the best products on the Internet and read reviews. Talk to others for recommendations.

A recent study out of Yale University School of Medicine had 33 men and women who practiced yoga at that rate. This lowered their blood pressure and improved their blood vesselsí ability to expand and contract by 17%. Researchers believe the improvements are based on the stress-reducing benefits of yoga.

 

 

If you want to learn the yoga positions for beginners, you can learn it easily at home or at school where yoga is taught.
