Whenever I try to brown onions to garnish biriyani with, they turn soggy. How can I make them crisp?

Oil must be hot and should be in the simmer form - add only a little quantity then it will not be soggy.

A chicken curry I make requires me to add curd right at the end, and then cook. But the curd always breaks, though I cook it on a low flame. Is there any way I can prevent the curd from breaking?

You should add the curd while sauting onion, ginger garlic, tomatoes and finally the curd. Then it will not break.

What is the difference between regular vinegar and Balsamic/white wine/red wine vinegar?

Regular vinegar is used for making paneer and for marination while the other one is used for cooking.

If I want to evenly brown paneer cubes on all four sides, is there any easy technique I can use. Right now, I tend to burn some when I saute them.
Keep oil in the simmer form. You place the paneer in the slicer then fry.


If I want to use Kashmiri chilli powder instead of regular chilli powder, What is the ratio I should follow? For example, if a recipe asks for 1 tablespoon of chilli powder, how many tablespoons of Kashmiri chilli powder should I use?
since it is not going to be too hot you can add 2 teaspoon
