A delightful meal you can cook on Induction Cooktop

Jan 15, 2021

Over the years the medium of cooking has changed and evolved. Gone are those days when we were only dependent on gas stoves for cooking in the kitchen. With urbanisation, induction stoves have started matching the needs and requirements of today’s lifestyle. These induction cooktops not only help you cook food faster but are also easy to clean. You can control the cooking temperature, set timers, and also select from the Preset menus to cook the dish of your choice.  The best way to cook is to prepare all the ingredients before you put the pan on the induction cooktop. Also, don’t forget to use induction-compatible utensils when cooking on induction. If you have an induction cooktop, here’s how you can prepare a full meal: 

Paneer Masala: 

Paneer Masala is a typical North Indian main course dish, made with onion, tomato, ginger-garlic paste, and aromatic spices. Keep all the ingredients ready before you place a pan on the induction cooker. You will need one chopped onion, 2 chopped tomatoes, ginger-garlic paste and cashew nuts for the curry. To start with, place the pan on the induction cooker and pour 2 tablespoons of oil/butter. Add all the ingredients and choose the ‘Sauté Option’ on the cooktop. Allow it to cool for a few minutes and then blend properly in a mixer grinder. Choose ‘Bajaj Mixer Grinders’ that will help retain the nutritional value of the ingredients, thanks to the new Nutri-Pro feature.

Put a fresh pan on the induction cooker and pour 2 tablespoon oil. Let it heat and then add cumin, cloves and the blended tomato-onion puree. Now, add ¼ teaspoon of chilli powder, one teaspoon of garam masala powder, salt (as per requirement) and half cup water. Allow it to cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the paneer cubes and cover the pan with a lid. Choose the ‘slow cook’ option in the induction and allow it to cook for 15-20 minutes. Garnish it with freshly chopped coriander and fresh cream (optional). Your Masala Paneer is ready to serve with Butter Naan or Jeera Rice!

Chicken Biryani:

What happens to your mind when you heard the word ‘Biryani’? Biryani is not just a word, but an emotion. Biryani is a carnival of all that is great about Indian food – the fragrant aromas, the vibrant colours, the fleecy rice and addictive flavours.

To start with, marinate chicken pieces in a paste of hung curd, red chilli powder, turmeric, salt and ginger-garlic paste. Allow it to rest for at least 1-2 hours. Place a deep bottomed vessel and add 2-3 teaspoons of oil and add 2 teaspoons of ghee. Add cumin seeds, bay leaf, green cardamom, and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add chopped onion and sauté until it turns golden brown. Add chicken pieces and cook for another 10 minutes. Add one cup of basmati rice and spread over the pieces evenly. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of saffron water. Close the lid and choose the ‘Rice option’ on the Preset menu. Your aromatic biryani is now ready to serve with raita as accompaniment.

Vegetable Cutlet:

Vegetable Cutlets are one of the most delicious, healthy and easy snack items. For the cutlets, take a large vessel and mix gram flour, chopped green chilli, ginger, chilli powder, garam masala, salt and coriander powder. Also, add the chopped vegetables of your choice such as carrots, capsicum, corns and onion. Add water and knead all the ingredients. Just make sure that the consistency of the batter should not be very thin and the ingredients should come together. Take small portions of the mixture and shape them into patties. For deep frying the cutlets, place a deep bottomed skillet with sufficient oil on the induction cooktop. Choose the ‘deep fry option’ and put the cutlets into the skillet and let the magic happen!

Rice Kheer: 

Prepared from fragrant rice and condensed milk, Kheer (or Rice Pudding) is not a very difficult recipe and is considered as an extremely delicious dessert item. Place a deep bottomed vessel on the induction cooktop and boil half a litre of milk. Once the milk is boiled properly, add 1 small cup of cooked rice and 1 small cup sugar. Choose the ‘curry option’ on your induction cooktop.

Keep stirring milk every after 3- 4 minutes to avoid lumps. Please note that the milk needs to be reduced to half or two-third (2/3) so that the milk turns thick. Add dry fruits and keep stirring for 5 minutes so that the dry fruits turn soft. Turn off the induction and add a few strands of saffron.  The perfect dessert to complete your meal for the day is ready to serve!
