My first post on cooking !!

October 7, 2009

This post was picked by Blogadda for their Spicy Saturday Picks

Now, this post should stop all those ‘you-don’t-take-blogging-seriously’ kind of allegations against me and that I write only irrelevant posts. Here it is, after a long time, I am attempting a serious and a very informative post; hoping to get the necessary encouragement from you all.

This post is an indeed an inspiration from all those cookery posts that my fellow bloggers had published so far. I had to literally get into all those posts once again and read them to get a basic structure of a cookery post.

So, are you ready ?  :

Lesson 1 : How to boil water.

You need :

  1. Water
  2. Vessel
  3. Gas
  4. Stove
  5. Spoon
  6. Gas lighter / match box
  7. Apple / Lays packet
  8. Knife
  9. Remote control
  10. Cloth

Rinse the vessel and keep it ready.

Fill the vessel with the required quantity of water. If it is for a blog post like this, then water from the tap is more than enough. Otherwise, fill the vessel only with water from an ISI marked packaged drinking water. Usually, it’s only the packaging that is ISI marked, the water that we normally get in it is anyway tap water! So it doesn’t matter anyway with what kind of water you fill the vessel.

After filling the vessel with water, stir the water well with a spoon so that all the minerals in the water are uniformly distributed.

Turn the gas on and light the stove using a gas lighter or a match box. Make sure you have enough gas in your cylinder otherwise you will end up having luke warm water which doesn’t serve our purpose now.

We will have to wait for sometime for the water in the vessel to get boiled. Meanwhile, take the apple and cut it into pieces with a clean knife. Switch on your TV and start eating your cut apple pieces one by one. It is mandatory that you enjoy the apple by having them slowly; you have got enough time ! If the vessel is large (irrespective of the quantity of water), you could substitute the apple with a packet of Lays chips, any flavour would do !

After a few minutes, you will start hearing some weird sounds and also see fumes coming out of the vessel, which means that the water is going to get boiled in some time.  Closely observe the water in the vessel. Stir the water in the vessel once again with the spoon, only because you haven’t made use of the spoon much.

Once you see a lot of bubbles arising from the water, look at it for a few seconds, its fun to watch those bubbles.

Switch off the knob in the stove and you have your boiled water ready.

Using a cloth carefully take the vessel from the stove and allow it to cool for a couple of minutes.

You could use this boiled water for various purposes like pour it into bottles and keep it in your fridge for purified ice water, you could also use it for a hot water bath incase you do not have a geyser in your bathroom, mix some salt to it and get hot salted water, which I don’t remember having any specific use.

The tutorial ends here, hope the text and the pictures were informative.

If there are other ways to boil water, you are free to share it here in the comments section.

PS : This is also an answer to Smita who claimed in this post of OGs that I cannot even boil water. It took me almost a month and a half to learn the techniques of boiling water and master it. Hmmphhh !!!!

        well u know what! for the singer that I was once upon a time, my Dad used to make me drink only ubla hua luke warm paani!

        From the time I got married, I put aside all my singing and started drinking only cold water even at -10 degrees temperature! 😛

        • October 7, 2009 6:14 pm

          there is nothing more yuck than Ubla water…

          my doc everytime I woudl go to him with cough instead of writing a sedative cough syrup would always tell me…

          • October 7, 2009 6:16 pm

            hahaha imagine having done that for every single day for 15 years! I used to hate getting up in the morning to a glass of boiled lukewarm salted water!

        • October 7, 2009 6:17 pm

          Rohini : You were a singer once upon a time??? Im sure you could still sing !!! Please dont lose that !!!

      LOL !!! you know what you should try??? Boil the same water again and use it for drinking !!! 😀 😀 😀

    • October 7, 2009 7:29 pm

      You have to cool the water before pouring it into bottles! Or else we will have a new photo-post called, “How to buy new bottles and throw away old, melted out of shape ones.”

  21. October 7, 2009 6:26 pm

    other tips :
    use microwave.. its hazardous I have heard but you can try.

    else:
    suppose a person is fuming after reading your post you can promptly give it to him/her and let the water boil 😉

    But yes, hilarity is what best describes this post. I had fun reading it.
    lol@ apple, lays chips and watching bubbles 😀 hehehheheheh

    Vimal one more use of hot water is wash ur dirty clothes,hot water cleans clothes well 😉

    There is solilo idea of using warm water with lemon and honey to reduce weight.

    I can never thought of anyone writing about how to boil water,this post should be copied in wikipedia.

  25. October 7, 2009 6:49 pm

    You could have used a whistling kettle!!! 😉

    😆

    • October 7, 2009 7:13 pm

      I have been boiling water using an electric kettle, but the joy of traditional methods is something else!

      • October 7, 2009 7:36 pm

        I prefer kettle 😀

        • October 7, 2009 7:49 pm

          We will demand a ban on electric kettles, it’s against our Indian ethos… City girls have forgotten the joy a lighting a fire, the smell of smoke, ash flying, the end of the sari tucked in while water boiled the way nature meant it to boil.

          • October 7, 2009 8:50 pm

            ROFL! IHM! Yes, electric kettles are indeed an attack to our culture! It is making our women lazy and giving them enough free time to think of other things 😉

          • October 7, 2009 9:58 pm

            gee IHM and you forgot to mention the added beauty benefits of boiling water the traditional way – when boiling water you can peep into the saucepan and get a facial sauna 🙂

    • October 7, 2009 8:45 pm

      @ E. chic : No no…my mom said whistling is what bad boys do !! 😀 😀 😀 😀

      @ IHM : Bang on ! 😀 😀 😀 Indian girls/women/ladies/whatevers should boil only this way ! otherwise, all the Sene loonies will lose their sleep 😀 😀 😀

      • October 7, 2009 8:55 pm

        Tht’s y I’m tellin u to use the whistling kettle! 😉

        Fine!! How about you boil the water as you mentioned above and start whistling instead of eating apple and Lays? 😛

        • October 7, 2009 8:58 pm

          No….no… (* vimmuuu tell his mom about E.chics whistle advise. Mom is asking for E.chics moms number to complain*) 😀 😀 😀 😀

    • October 7, 2009 7:08 pm

      Nautanky Vimmuu had called OG to share this recipe with him, but there was some misunderstanding… err…

    • October 7, 2009 8:43 pm

      LOL ! welcome back nautankey !!! Its been a long time, thats why teh confusion !!! 😀 😀 😀

  27. October 7, 2009 6:59 pm

    Salted water is useful for gargling if one has been singing too much or in case of a sore throat or swine flu etc.

    • October 7, 2009 8:46 pm

      This is boiled salted water !!! You will lose your life IHM !!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

      • October 8, 2009 9:48 am

        Vimmuuu then you can write posts about how to kill trusting fellow bloggers.

        … by the way I drink very hot tea, boiling water is unlikely to do much damage.

  28. October 7, 2009 7:05 pm

    Vimmuu extremely relevant post. I had always wanted to try this. The mistake I was making was that I was using banana chips instead of Lays. Thanks for sharing.

    • October 7, 2009 7:10 pm

      IHM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      OMG!!! i was just discharged from hospital…. now here i go again!

      banana chips…hhmmm…no wonder !!! Its only Lays chips, all the time !! Next time consult me !!!

      Crafty : Oh no, not again !!! IHM, look what you did, your sense of humor is sending people back to what they were !! 😀 😀 😀 😀

  29. October 7, 2009 7:26 pm

    Ohh Vimmu I am so thankful to you for this informative post. I will need this method of boiling water once I am back in India. In this land besides toilet rolls we get hot boiling water directly from the taps to sterilize ourselves after using paper. So after I am in India I will make this recipe following your direction and use it after singing in the bathroom 🙂

    Bahhhhhhhhhhhh wonly you can get away with such posts and still get 100 comments!!!!!

    Classic recipe I say….is this ur traditional family recipe passed on to you from generations??

    • October 7, 2009 8:30 pm

      I have to agree with Sakshi here (only on the last point) I suspect Vimmuuu acquired this recipe from the (ours too!) ancestors he hates.

    • October 7, 2009 8:54 pm

      Y ??? Y oh y do u have to bring my bathroom tales here too ??? 😀 😀 😀 😀

      No, this isnt any legacy ! I learned this myself after a one a half month research !! 😀 😀 😀

      • October 8, 2009 10:45 am

        Didnt Sakshi recently post a recipe of bread butter… ?? huh

        wonder what the curious George had to say about it all… sigh…

    Soon he will deep frying in oil
    He are a worried lot 🙄
    What if the oil becomes hot?

  37. October 7, 2009 8:40 pm

    If the water is one and a half cup , all you need to do is to add maggi and let cook for two mins.

    • October 7, 2009 8:48 pm

      Wow, thats a nice option too !! 😀 😀 😀

      I should write another post on uses of boiled water !! 😀 😀 😀

  38. October 7, 2009 8:58 pm

    Now both you and OG can host a cookery show together. Between recipes you guys can also show off your singing skills 🙂

    ‘Now, this post should stop all those ’you-don’t-take-blogging-seriously’ kind of allegations against me and that I write only irrelevant posts.’ – Yes, very relevant indeed! Thank you very much Vimmuuu for that post 😉

    Or are you trying to take revenge on OG after he did a singing post after being inspired by you? If he can sing- I can cook, kind of post 🙂

    • October 7, 2009 9:03 pm

      ROFL!!!!!!!!! smithus,

      if this is revenge, I cannot stand any more of this 😛

      • October 7, 2009 10:15 pm

        I’ll be the audience and cheer you guys loudly! And will offer to be the guinea pig to taste your creations as far as OG is the cook 🙂

        LOL@ Dinosaur brains! Now thats an interesting phrase 🙂

        • October 7, 2009 11:44 pm

          you wanna be the pig ??? Awww…smitha, so sweet of you !!! You are the best pig ever, I mean guinea !!! 😀 😀 😀

    I came here to spend some time fighting in order to gain my lost senses back. Alas all seems to have disappeared from here 😦

    Anyways, Vimmuuu has improved a lot. He knew how to HEAT water and make ready made curries. Now he has got into boiling… Now is the next burning? 😯 Time will tell!!!

    • October 7, 2009 9:26 pm

      Yeyyy !!! I have finally mastered the art of boiling water !! Next time you come home, you will get boiled water from me !! 😀 😀 😀

  43. October 7, 2009 9:23 pm

    What’s more Suji, he is willing to share this knowledge. ..some chefs refuse to share their recipes…. there’s this show on I think CNN IBN, where this woman just refused to give her parantha recipe!

    • October 7, 2009 9:29 pm

      Oh, thats bad !! Why dont people share recipes like me and OG !! chey chey !!! Im disappointed for the day 😦

    • October 8, 2009 7:13 am

      The truth is slightly different IHM. He was officialy BARRED from sharing in recipies by the “association of people with basic common sense” (APBCS). Now this is Illegal – what he is doing! Calculate the amount of product hours of people lost in listening to this… err… I dont have a name for this 😀 😀

  44. October 7, 2009 9:31 pm

    *sakshi sitting all serious and asking her culinary doubts the way people write to Mrs. K.M. Mathew in Vanitha*

    Priyapetta Chef Vimmu Saar,

    I like to believe that I love cooking, and try a lot of experiments on my once healthy husband. My problem is that when I try to splutter mustard seeds in oil, the seeds transform themselves to SuperSeeds and fly out of the pan and attack my eyes, nose etc. Saar can you share a way to make these seeds less violent and yet retain the taste of the tadka??

    Swantham

    Cooking Cumari

    • October 7, 2009 11:51 pm

      Once healthy husband, huh? 😀 😀 😀 I have no doubts on that !! 😀 😀

      Dear Ms. Cumari ,

      Thats a very common issue among ‘cookers’ ! Mustard seeds are born that way; its their habit ! you cant help it. Now, prevention is better than cooking; so, wear a mask while spluttering mustard seeds, or you would cover yourself up while doing that. The other alternative is by aking your once healthy husband do this also. You could save your features and also get a revenge on the poor ‘he’.

      Looking forward to more such queries.

      Yours cookingly,

      Chef Vimmuuu saar

      • October 8, 2009 7:16 am

        Ok probably avoid using mustard seeds… Just boil some water 😛

      • October 8, 2009 7:38 pm

        Priyapetta Chef vimmu Saar,

        Danks a Kilo for your reply. I am all cooing in eggcitment after getting a reply from the famous Boiler Chef Vimmu. Will do what you have suggested and preserve my beauty. From now on I am gonna be a strict Non-splutterian, will eat food that doesn’t have any ingredients which is capable of spluttering.

        PS: Oru autograph kittirunnengil……

  49. October 7, 2009 10:34 pm

    Mrs. Cooking Cumari ,

    I am trying to believe that you love cooking, and try a lot of experiments on your once healthy husband (a respectable, certified, JKG, btw). Your problem is that you try in the wrong place. Bring tadka in your life, not in your fry pan.

    Chef Vimmu Saar

    • October 7, 2009 10:39 pm

      *Sakshi checks if Crafty is still asleep and has not heard about this non frying pan tadka*

      IHM ROFL you are collecting JKG big time haan? well my husband qualifies in every way after agreeing to marry a nutty me even after 3 years of courtship when I tried my best to show him the sweet side of me and failed miserably 🙂

      • October 7, 2009 10:54 pm

        Sakshi you suspect my motives!!! I was only trying to be helpful!!!

        *but you may mention your JKG’s story and your failed attempts at being sweet, on the relevant blog and post, as an entry, go ahead the award is waiting for a Mrs Cooking Cumari just like you*

      • October 8, 2009 1:05 pm

        *crafty wakes up and rubs eyes… staggers to where Vimmuuu is sitting and tugs on his sleeve*

    No:10 Cloth? You mean to say that usually you cook ahem… cloth-less? 😐

    Tell us the truth. How much money did LAYS chips pay you to advertise their product? This post is like going for a Yashraj film and ended up watching RGV’s horror. 😈

    • October 8, 2009 5:21 am

      You are drunk, na? Cloth is used at the end of the ‘cooking’, na? kannu thurannu nokku chechiye !!! 😀 😀 😀

      Yashraj film , RGVs horror ??? Ok confirmed, YOU ARE DRUNK !!! 😀 😀 😀

    • October 8, 2009 7:19 am

      Chances are that he is shuttling between bathroom and kitchen… Even worse – he could have set up his kitchen in his bathroom… Clothlessness is a clear possibility! 😀 😀

    Splits on this meticulous post. Whattapost! This is the tastiest recipe for boiled water I have ever read anywhere on this planet. Now you must try doing this on moon where they claim to have found water :p

    Wonder at the 282 comments with your reply on almost all of them.
    Rama Rama ho gaya hungama!

    • October 8, 2009 5:02 pm

      LOL, so next time when anyone boils water, they would think of this tastiest way, na? and you want me to try it on the moon??…any idea who is the gas supplier over there??? and do I need a ration card to apply for the gas connection??? 😀

      I know ! its a battle field here !!:D 😀 😀

  64. October 8, 2009 4:43 pm

    OMG!!

  66. October 8, 2009 5:48 pm

    I think you missed out on a few things:
    You nead a neat, well-wiped kitchen top where you can prop yourselfves up to watch the bubbles. You’re on a highter plane…and the view is fantastic 🙂 You’ll be so totally engrossed that when you watch the last drop of water become a bubble and swiftly become vapour, you feel the goodness of vapourised minerals around you — and the badness of a burnt vessel 🙂
    Try it next time. To munch one, groundnuts are a better choice 😀 Pop goes a bubble into vapour, pop goes a groundnut into mouth 😀

    • October 9, 2009 2:39 am

      Either Im not that short or the whole kitchen is a lill lower; I could see what all was happening inside the vessel !!!

      Hmmm..groundnuts are a tough job, you need to take the shells off first and then have them !!! No kshama; patience illa !!! 😀

    Vim : LOL, Craftys drama starts !! 😀

    WHA???? People have been telling u you don’t take blogging seriously??? Good lord!!! You are really a serious blogger Vimmuuu! If u get any more serious than u are, we may have to admit you in the hospital! 😆
    Vimmuuu is looking for water to throw on crafty for that lame joke*

    Vim : Hitchy dont mind ! Crafty, only you could come with such a joke !! 😀 😀

    Yes…. cookery posts have certainly been doing the rounds I tell ya!!!! Why, even I am considering a recipe post of my own! 🙄

    Vim : You too ??? 😀 😀 😀 The blog samaj is getting crazier than I thought !

    *crafty is ready…she carefully writes down the requirements list, her tongue slightly sticking out from corner due to excessive concentration*

    Vim : LOL !! Im imagining you do that ! seriously !!! 😀 😀 😀

    Usually, it’s only the packaging that is ISI marked, the water that we normally get in it is anyway tap water!

    Whoa!!!! This post is just like ur bathroom posts…. Quite revealing! 😆
    ROFL! That reminded me of a cartoon! Have u seen Daffy duck? Well, he is in outerspace and trying to fight an alien hi-tech bird who has a “Disintegrating Gun” so Daffy wears his “Non-disintegrating Jacket”. The alien bird shoots…. The Non-Disintegrating Jacket is intact, but Daffy inside it has turned to a pile of ashes! 😆 😆
    *this part of the comment was sponsored by Cartoon Network*

    Vim : LOL !! I havnt seen that episode, but I have watched the likes in other cartoons !! 😀 😀 😀 and whats revealing in this !!! 😉

    OHO!!!! So we have to STIR to mix the minerals!!! No wonder it always felt like I wasn’t getting much health benefits from water that I shud have been! 😛
    *crafty shakes the bottle of water thoroughly well before drinking, while her mom looks at her and rolls eyes*

    Vim : Yeah yeah, she is already aware of the fact that you are loony !! 😀 Its ok !!
    Make sure you have enough gas in your cylinder otherwise you will end up having luke warm water which doesn’t serve our purpose now.

    I laughed so much on this that I had tears in my eyes!!!! Aiyooooo!!!!!!!! Ittre okke tamasha venno vimmuuu saare?????? Ho!!! I laughed so hard….The gal who sits on opposite side of my cubicle suddenly got up and looked at me and said, “so finally it happened? u have gone mad?” :mrgreen:

    Vim : ROFL !!!! Ask her to start blogging as well !!!

    Apple? Hmmm… Tell me, can we substitute that with seasonal fruits? What will happen if I boil water while eating a kiwi… or a strawberry? 🙄
    Lays chips!!!! Che!!!! So many lays chips eaten and wasted, when I cud have made multiple use and boiled water simultaneously!!! :mrgreen:

    Vim : No, only apples please !! No kiwi or strawberry or pistaccio !! 😀 😀 😀

    Bubbles? There are bubbles involved eh? I LIKE!!!!!! (irrelevant…. I have picked up a bubble maker bottle for u vimmuuu…. 😀 😀 😀 )

    Vim : Keep it wid ya. We are going to need them !!!

    Purified Ice water!!!!!!!! Soooper!!!!! So then we can also make purified ice cubes? I like that idea!!!! 😀 😀 😀 will go tell mom about it!

    Vim : Please dont !!! Please !!! did you already ???

    mix some salt to it and get hot salted water, which I don’t remember having any specific use.

    Hmmm… maybe can throw in some sea shells and pretend u are bathing at the sea shore? Hmmm, but why will be hot na? *thinks some more* AHA!!! It will feel like bathing at sea shore in the afternoon!!! 😀 😀 😀
    *vimmuuu for sake of crafty who is bent over her notepad scribbling away the important points, requests ppl who are aiming tomatoes and eggs, to refrain from the act*

    Vim : Now whos bringing up the bathroom tales here !!! 😀 😀 😀

    Other ways to boil water?
    Hmmm……

    I dunno that, but I do know a PJ!!!!!!
    *Ppl with tomatoes who were told to leave are being called back by vimmuuu*

    Question: How do you make pure holy water?
    Answer: Take some plain water…. And boil the hell out of it.

    😆

    Vim : LOL, heyy, thats not a PJ ! These are the kind of jokes that I like 😀 😀 😀

    Vimmuuu saare!!!! Ur post just made my day I tell ya!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀
    This is ur craziest best!!!! I loved it!!!

    Ingredients:
    1. An office/job wherein you have ‘obviously’ nothing to do.

    3.A head that would have been practically empty if not for the craziness in it.
    4.A poor laptop which did not know where it would land up!
    5. Typing skills that was by mistake learnt…
    6. A group of innocent co-bloger who are renamed as “victims” to through this torture

    Method..
    Pretend to be,to go to item no 1. Search for the other roommates in item no 2 to add to the craziness of the idea. Item no 3 is actually of no use..but yeah this can be achieved only with such a dustbin. Tap on the item no 4 using item no 5. extend it to item no 6.

    PS: Can approach item no 6 if incase u need rotten tomatoes and rotten eggs…thrown in full force.

    oh hail great vimmuu…the one who enlightens us all with his great knowledge and wisdom.

    Vim : Welcome ! Welcome !

    The one who taught cookoo cave-men 😯 like me on
    1) How to bitch abt movies
    2)How to video conference in a bath tub without getting electrocuted
    3)How to spoil a European bathroom by peeing on the floor
    4)How to write a break up/whining post
    5)How to irritate people
    6)How to conduct a street protest without getting beaten up the police
    7)How not to follow traffic signals
    8)How to offend and harass a brahmin couple in a train
    9)How “switcheroo” works
    10)How to hunt for killer grasshoppers/crickets
    He is also the one
    11)who conducts award functions to humiliate stars
    12)who conducts competitions n never gives away the prizes
    13)who taught us how to hate our forefathers
    14)Showed us how the “chaiya chaiya” song shouldn’t be sung

    Vim : waait a minute, are you praising me or insulting me ???

    and now the greatest path breaking achievement since Americans faked the moon landing!
    vimmuu enlightens us all on how to boil water! amazing man!

    Vimmuism rocks!

    Vim : Ok, I get it ! Its an insult ! Sigh ! and I inspired you to blog as well !

    btw i still have some confusion regarding this complicated procedure
    IS that Rajni kanths knife from BABA?

    Vim : Yes yes. I like your observation !!

    U didnt tell us how u managed to put tht knife on tht apple!

    Vim : Oh, thats another post material !

    Do we have to do all tht spine twisting Rajni acrobatics to cut tht apple?
    And by not doing tht,Will this in anyway affect the chemical composition of the water ?Plz clear my confusion oh great one!

    regards,
    a very confused vampire
    🙄

    Vim : ROFL !!! 😀 😀 😀

      bartula….. u point is very valid!

      *crafty stands next to bartula vampire (keeping safe distance) looking at vimmuuu for answer*

      • October 14, 2009 9:11 pm

            *bartula escapes frm the hospital equipped with an garlic resistant gas mask and a voodoo doll replica of crafty, ready to be dipped in concentrated surf excel and boiled water(courtesy: vimmuu)!!*

    Vimmuuuu…There are some movie directors who make small roles just to give a chance to their friends. What is your relation with that spoon to give a role to her (feminist attitude) ??Till now in my life I thought boiling water was the simplest thing to do in a kitchen other than breaking glasses, eating grated coconut etc..etc..But you opened up my eyes!! 🙂

    • December 10, 2009 10:36 pm
