Things you should not put in your mixer grinder
A mixer grinder is one appliance that makes your work in the kitchen easy. Though you can use a mixer grinder to blend a variety of ingredients, there are a few things you should not.
Here are a few things you should put in a mixer grinder:
1. Extra-hot liquids: Putting extra hot liquids in a mixer grinder is a big no-no. Hot liquids emit steam that quickly creates a pressure inside the jar. Keep the hot liquid aside for 7-8 minutes and let it cool off before you pour it into the jar. Additionally, avoid filling the jar to the brim as the blending can cause the hot liquid to explode.
2. Frozen fruits: A mixer grinder is an ideal kitchen appliance for making sumptuous smoothies in just a few minutes. However, putting super-frozen fruits in your mixie can create lumps in your smoothie. Besides, it can impact the effectiveness of the mixer grinder by damaging the blades. Take your fruits out from the freezer and let them thaw for some time, before putting them in the mixie. You can also cut them into slices and add a little bit of water for best results.
3. Starchy veggies: You should avoid blending starchy and thick foods like potatoes. The speed of the blade tends to over-blend the potatoes, which releases too much starch. You will end up with a gluey mess rather than properly mashed potatoes.
4. Leafy veggies: Never make the mistake of grinding or blending your leafy veggies directly in the mixer grinder. The reason? The grinder’s motor can turn the fresh leafy veggies brown. Thus, the effective way of preventing these veggies from turning brown is by putting them in the refrigerator for some time, before popping them into the mixie.
