Oman dining: Five kitchen hacks

1. Never put citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, sweet limes or tomatoes in the fridge. The low temperatures lowers the aroma and flavour of these fruits. That is one reason why our tomatoes don’t last in the fridge.

2. Before you chop fresh red peppers, rub a little oil on your hands and your skin won’t absorb the spiciness.

3. If your salt is becoming lumpy, put a few grains of rice in with it to absorb excess moisture and your salt will be smooth.

4. When making a soup, sauce, that ends up too fatty or greasy, drop in an ice cube. The ice will attract the fat, which you can then scoop out. Try this, it works wonders.

5. To reuse cooking oil without tasting whatever was cooked in the oil previously, cook a 1/4 piece of ginger in the oil. It will remove any remaining flavours and smell.
