Food is one constant in everyone’s life. Whoever you are, you have to make and eat food. Well, of course not if you are extremely rich and don’t even know where your kitchen is also if you are that kind of a man who strongly believes in society given gender roles. So we are going to assume that you actually do interact with food. So especially for you, here are 5 food hacks that made rounds on TikTok and might be worth trying.
1. Reverse straining the pasta
When you are making pasta, you have to boil it, and then strain the water by pouring the content from the pot into a strainer. After that, you pour cold water on it followed by putting the pasta back in the pot. An alternate way is reversely straining the pasta. In this, you put the sieve on top of the pot and tilt the pot so the water drains out from the pot but the pasta stays in. Saves two steps, doesn’t it?
2. Peeling a mango with a glass
Mangoes are the best amongst the fruits, are they not? And the best way to relish their taste completely is to properly peel them first so when you are eating, you don’t face any obstacles. But it’s just very hard to peel them the usual way. The unusual way, however, is quite easy. All you need to do is half the mango vertically. And then put the lower end of one side on to a glass edge. And just scoop it out!
3. Juice the lemon the right way
Squeezing the lemon adds rich flavor to any dish. But when you do it, all your hand gets sticky. The better way is to poke the lemon on one end with a fork. In that hole, insert a chopstick, or tooth stick, whatever you have available. It should go up to a 3-quarter length of the lemon. Make sure to widen the hole a little to maximize flow. Now, you just squeeze it. The juice won’t get on your hands and the extract will be seed-free. Thank me later. Well, thank the TikTok food hacks, but same difference.
4. Banana Bread Mug
This food hack allows you to make banana bread in a mug within 60 seconds. You mash half a banana, one-third cup of oat flour, 1 tbsp oat milk, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, half teaspoons of vanilla essence, baking powder, cinnamon. Add a pinch of salt, and 1 tablespoon of chopped walnuts, and shredded coconut. Put it in the microwave for 60 seconds, et voila!
5. Peeling boiled eggs
The hack that I knew for peeled boiled eggs was, hitting the boiled egg on its shell and then putting it in a glass. Shake the glass around and they say, the shell just comes off. Sometimes it’s perfect, other times it’s not. But the TikTok Food hacks showed another way.
You take a boiled egg and make a small hole on the top of the egg. At the bottom, you make a slightly larger hole. From the top hole, blow in the hole, the peeling will come right off.
These TikTok food hacks are worth trying. So do let us know how you found them!
