Cooking Tips

Did you know that adding a pinch of sugar while frying onions make them brown faster? Or that turmeric stains can be removed by rubbing orange peel on them? Or to remove the strange odour from cooked cabbage, all you need to do is add a slice of bread while cooking? (And remove it afterwards)
