Easy-To-Make Dishes For Students Living In Hostels
Hostel life is full of fun. Late-night group studies, movie nights and gossip sessions make for memories of a lifetime. A very important part of the hostel life is the food you make and share with friends. With an induction cooker, you can make a variety of meals without any fuss. To get you motivated to cook and to keep your taste buds happy, we are sharing with you some easy-to-make dishes that you can make using an induction cooker:
1. Scrambled eggs: Soft and delicious scrambled eggs are all you need to start your day on a healthy and positive note. Gather all the ingredients: 4 eggs, half a cup milk, 2 tablespoon butter and salt and pepper (as per taste). Crack eggs and pour them into a bowl, add all the other ingredients. Whisk thoroughly with either a whisker or a hand blender. Place a non-stick skillet on the induction cooktop and let the butter melt. Slowly pour the egg mixture. Use a spatula to gently mix. You can add cheese and fresh chopped coriander leaves for extra flavour.
2. Upma: Upma is a healthy and delicious food to satiate your late-night cravings. Chop the vegetables like carrots, broccoli and french beans. You can also add green peas. Heat oil in a deep bottomed pan and then add mustard seeds. Add grated ginger along with curry leaves. Now, put some finely chopped onions and saute not more than a minute. Onions should be translucent. Now, add all the vegetables along with roasted semolina (sooji). To this mix, add salt and hot water. Stir this mix continuously otherwise you will end up with lumps. Cook till all the water is absorbed. Garnish it with fresh coriander leaves.
3. Pasta: Pasta is simple and super easy to make. Take two bowls of pasta, you can take any– penne, spaghetti or spiral. Put the pasta in a pan, add water, a little bit of salt and 2 tablespoons of oil and boil it. Oil will prevent the pasta from sticking together. Keep chopped vegetables like carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms and broccoli ready. Once the pasta is cooked, drain the water. Now, place a deep bottomed pan on the induction cooktop, pour 3 to 4 teaspoons of oil and add crushed garlic and chopped onion and tomatoes. Add all the vegetables along with salt and red chilli powder when onions and tomatoes are mushy. Add pasta with ready-made or home-made pasta sauce. For extra flavour, mix oregano. Voila! Your pasta is ready!
