5 Ways To Use Your Mixer Grinder

No Indian food item is complete without masalas, purees or chutneys! The Crompton electric mixer helps you make lip-smacking recipes in a very short time. Here are some of the ways in which mixer grinders can help you:


1. Batter For Idlis And Dosas

If you love South Indian food, then why not try making it at home? The mixer grinders from Crompton will help you in making the batter needed for making either steaming idlis or crispy dosas.

Idlis are a healthy vegetarian choice for breakfast, and its primary ingredients are rice and lentil batter. The idli batter is made with idli rice and urad dal. You need to rinse the rice and urad dal with fresh water and let it soak for 4 to 5 hours.

Crompton mixer grinders help you grind the urad dal turning it into a soft and fluffy batter. It also grinds the rice into a semi-fine state.


2. Masala Powder

Masalas are an important ingredient in many Indian recipes. For great flavour in your Indian dish, you need to add masala powder. The ready-to-use masala powders that you can buy from the market are no match to the homemade masala made using fresh ingredients with your electric mixer.

Take your pick from Chaat Masala to Chicken Masala. The ingredients to make chaat masala are coriander seeds, cumin seeds, thymol seeds (ajwain), mango powder, garam masala, black rock salt, black pepper, citric acid and powdered mint leaves. You need to roast the cumin, coriander, and ajwain in a heavy bottom pan till they are dark brown. Remove these ingredients from the pan and allow them to cool.  All the ingredients are to be put into the Crompton electric mixer to grind them to powder-fine consistency. That’s it, you are ready to create homemade chats that no one will ever forget!

If you have always wanted to cook chicken at home, then Crompton mixer grinders will help you make mouthwatering chicken recipes at home with the freshly-made chicken masala. The ingredients you need for making chicken masala are turmeric, cloves, nutmeg, mace, dried plums, red chilli powder, green cardamom, coriander powder, salt, black peppercorns, and deghi mirch. Grind these with the electric mixer from Crompton to a powdery consistency.

Next, there are some whole spices that you need to grind. They are cinnamon sticks, white cumin seeds, green cardamom, star anise, black cumin seeds, black peppercorns, cloves and bay leaves. Grind all these spices with the Crompton electric mixer to make the powder. The previously ground powder needs to be added to the powdered spices and mixed properly. Now, go ahead and try out your special chicken recipe!


3. Purees

With the blending features of Crompton mixer grinders, it’s really simple to make fresh and flavourful tomato purees for an Indian style Punjabi paneer. Just follow a 3-step process of blanching, peeling and crushing.

To make tomato puree, you need to first choose tomatoes that are red, ripe, and firm and use running water to rinse them. Deep perpendicular cuts are to be made so that the tomatoes can be peeled easily. Put these tomatoes in boiling water and boil for 3 minutes. These tomatoes are then to be placed in cold water for 2 minutes. The skin of the tomatoes should then be peeled and removed.

Remove the stem and cut the tomatoes in half. Next, put them in the Crompton electric mixer to make a smooth puree. Are you ready to impress your friends with your tomato paneer?


4. Chutneys

Chutneys add that extra zing to your snacks and meals, and if it’s homemade, it tastes all the better. You can have it with dry paneer tikka, kachori, or samosas.

The ingredients for mint chutney are coriander leaves, garlic and ginger. Use Crompton mixer grinders to grind the garlic, chilli, sugar and ginger to paste. To this, you need to add mint leaves, lemon juice, coriander leaves, and one tablespoon of water. Grind till the mixture achieves a smooth consistency. Now, are you ready to have your hot samosas and kachoris with this delicious homemade mint chutney?


5. Grinding sugar

Crompton mixer grinders can also make fine powdered sugar for mouthwatering Shrikhand to satisfy your sweet tooth! All you need to do is put 1 cup sugar in an electric mixer. Grind the sugar till it becomes a fine powder. The mixture should then be transferred to a siever, and a tablespoon of cornflour added. It should be sieved twice to ensure proper mixing. Your powdered sugar is ready, so make your Shrikhand now!
