Secret cooking tips for Indian kitchen….
#1 — Never forget to add a pinch of salt while boiling potatoes. It helps in peeling or removing the skin easily.
#2 — Dip paneer in warm salt water for 10 – 15 minutes prior to adding it into the gravy. This softens the paneer and helps in absorbing the gravy.
#3 — Always cook the ingredients in an order to make the dish appetizing and tasty. For example, onions should go first in the oil, then garlic and then ginger and tomato as each veggie has its own cooking time.
#4 — In order to retain the bright green color of peas add a pinch of sugar before boiling or cooking.
#5 — Add a teaspoon of oil while cooking dal to avoid frothing and spilling all over.
#6 — Use heavy bottom pan or vessel for cooking upma or kheer. Heavy based pan prevents food from burning.
#7 — To make the puris crunchy and crispier add 2 to 3 tablespoon rava or semolina to the wheat flour while kneading.
#8 — To separate the strings of noodles or pasta from each other keep it under running cold water for 2 to 3 minutes, immediately after boiling. Hot and cold water treatment prevents the noodle strand from sticking to each other.
#9 — To make ‘a day old’ muffin fresh, sprinkle few drops of water on it and put the muffins in a paper bag and microwave for 10 seconds. Steam revives the moisture content of day-old muffins.
#10 — It is advised to add 1 to 2 teaspoon of canola oil while melting chocolate in order to keep it smooth. This makes it easy to dip or drizzle

Tyres never get tired: Brilliant Ideas For Recycling Tyres!!!!
Are you aware that every year one tire is discarded per person? In Europe, only half of the discarded care tires are recycled and rest is burned or simply thrown. Keeping this in mind I have come up with great ideas to transform the unwanted tires into useful items. Let’s learn.
An old tire, wooden board, a jigsaw, acrylic paint, sandpaper and brush, pencil, measuring tape and rope.
Let’s do it:
Step 1: Measure the diameter of the tire.
Step 2: Draw a circle on the wooden board.
Cut the wooden board by using a jigsaw and polish the edges by using sandpaper. Then paint it on both sides. Use the same to cover the bottom of the tire.
Step 4: Paint the tire.
Apply a primer on the tire to seal the surface well to prevent it from cracking. Then paint the outside with the paint of your preferable color. Finally, place the cushion over the wood board.
You can also make a coffee table using the same method.
Not limited to sitting arrangements, tires can also be used as beautiful planters as below.
Another brilliant idea of using the old tires is making a cute cozy bed for your pets.

LET’S MAKE YOUR JUST DENIM TO WOW DENIM: DIY PEARL STUDDED JEANS
The other day, when I was just turning over the pages of a magazine, I came across a cute and stylish pair of denim studded with pearls by Paige Denim. Instantly, the ‘CreativeMe’ version within me whispered “Time for some creativity”. Let’s learn how to remake your boring jeans into stylish and fashionable denim.
All you need:
1. Old Jeans.
2. Plastic white beads or pearls preferably in different sizes and two colors. I have used white and ivory to give it an elegant look.
3. Needle, Thread, and Scissors.
Make your beads ready and decide where you want to place them.
There are actually two methods to attach pearls or beads. First, you can stitch on one pearl or bead at a time, which takes a good time. Stitch the large bead or pearls one by one randomly.
The second method is to stitch the smaller or tiny pearls beads consecutively by using one long thread.
To make it more visible and stylish and start stitching the largest pearl beads near the front pocket. Place your stitches close to each other and use little thread as possible. Make sure the pearl beads are not attached too tight or too loose.
Scatter the large pearl beads one by one then stitch the medium pearls and finally the tiny ones to fill in the spaces.
Happy DIY 😊😇😊
SIMPLE IDEAS OF HOME DÉCOR WITH OLD LEATHER BELTS AND STRAPS!
Belts and leather bags are such fashion accessories that go out of trend in every now and then. If this year a belt or bag is the trending fashion, the subsequent year it is out of style. So, if you have a set of fashionable belts in your wardrobe that you don’t use anymore, don’t just donate, crafting something interesting is always the best options as well!
Take two leather belts, two wood boards, nails, and a hammer.
Measure and mark the wooden boards for perfect alignment.
Then fasten the belts together and make two identical loops. Make extra holes on the belts if they are not in the same dimension.
Place the loops on the marks and hammer three nails on the front of each board. Similarly, position another board and staple it to the belts with nails on each side.
Other interesting and useful things are ….
A small piece from a leather belt goes well with wood. It can be used as a pull for a drawer.
If you have a collection of many old belts, then it can be used to make a beautiful entrance/doormat out of them.
If you have old books and pillows which you don’t need any more, you can stack and tie them with two old leather belts to make a stool.
Hope this will help you to use your old stuff and make them beautiful and amazing crafts.
Happy DIY !!!! 🙂
Kartik Aryan owns apartment in which he was a paying guest once upon time…
Kartik Aaryan, a Gwalior boy from no film background has won the hearts across the nation. The blockbusters like Pyaar Ka Punchnama series and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety have proved that he is going to be a superstar in the future.

That was something I never thought I would do because I hail from Gwalior, which is not an expensive city to live in, but Mumbai is really expensive”.
He also added “We had our share of struggles. We used to go to auditions, wahaan pe ‘not fit’ ho jaata tha. I used to travel without tickets in local trains from Navi Mumbai to Mumbai when I was auditioning. I didn’t even have that much money,”.
On the professional front, Kartik’s upcoming movies include Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal 2, where the actor will share the screen with Sara Ali Khan along with Randeep Hooda. The sequel is scheduled to be released on February 14, 2020.
