Amidst the shrieks of my two-year-old son, the unending demands of my 7-year-old Tsunami (another son, whose behaviour induces tsunami-like impact in our home ALL THE TIME), and of course the sweetly worded myriad instructions of my dear mother-in-law, I more often than not lose my composure and end up cooking unsightly, under or overcooked morsels that no one would eat. Thereby, making me go through the entire process of cooking again.
But thankfully, (and kudos to my patience and umpteenth practice), I am out of this shackle. I have accumulated some trusted non-stick cookware arsenals and recipes that help me to come out of the meal-making misery. And there’s reason (actually more than one) that I use only my beloved non-stick cookware to churn out this delicious fare:
1. A non-stick cookware (frypan/tawa/ square pan) is great for everything eggy (read anything that requires fuss-free flipping). Let me tell you, eggs are a firm family favourite, and hold an undisputed place in our menu.
Therefore, this is the recipe that I rely on whenever the tantrums are running high and I am running out of time. Click here
Sandwich sans breads: easiest way to keep the refined flour out and healthy ingredients in. Plus, I can whip them out in just 6-7 minutes; a win-win situation for a miserable mommy!
2.Pancakes and non-stick cookware are the best friends that will make any kid (and sometimes adults too) very happy. Non-stick cookware is known for even distribution of heat and quick food release- just what pancakes need!
This is my favourite recipe- easy to prepare and delicious to savour: Potato Pancake Click here
3. My dear hubby has a penchant for any fish recipe, but no matter what I did, they always came out broken and messy. Then one of my besties told me that delicate fishes need a miraculous cookware. And bingo! My wonderful non-stick cookware helped me prepare incredible fish recipes without any mess.
Here’s my favourite recipe- low on calories and high on taste- and gets ready in only 10 minutes. Steamed Ginger Soy Fish Click here
4. Crepes are thin and delicate and more than likely to stick to the pan. Crepes are also loved by munchkins like my two little wonders. So, I use my much-used, much-loved non-stick frypan to prepare crunchy, crispy, perfect crepes.
This is my light, lovely to look at and easy to cook Mango Crepe Cake. Click here
5. Cheese is synonymous with happiness. Because it makes kids happy and it makes mothers even happier (when the kids gobble up the plate). But cheesy recipes have an uncanny tendency of sticking to the surface of the pan and ruining all your efforts. However, they can’t have the upper hand when they are under the strict observation of a non-stick cookware.
I use this frypan to prepare gooey and decadent cheesy treats like Pull Apart Cheesy Garlic Bread. Click here
