It is possible nearly all Sri Lankans consume rice and curries on daily basis, whether they live in Sri Lanka or abroad. There are quite a few Buddhist temples and Kovils in and around London. On special occasions such as on full moon day, quite a few Sri Lankans take Sil or Ata Sil. During the lunch time first the priests are offered the dana then everybody are served with dana. It’s amazing to see; those who observed Ata Sil, sit on the floor just like back home and listen to sermons all day then participate in dana. Rice and curries are served but vegetarian only, followed by a large number of desserts including ice cream, watalappan, fruit salads and many more.

Who would say adding this and that quickly and cook on full fire is cooking? Dr Hector Perera London Adding this and that without any explanation and heating on fire is not real cooking to be shown on British Television. I have a great respect for British TV cooking programmes because some of them really educate the viewers. Some chefs, purposely set fire to the cooking pan and dance around jabbering and muttering something nonsense then keep on adding more ingredients for no reason.

Energy Wastage is Inevitable

Monday, 24 Mar 2014 19:08

Energy wastage is inevitable but why do we waste purposely, we don’t get it for free? Dr Hector Perera London Most chefs and other people just fry this and that without due care to the emissions given out during the process of frying. Back home in Sri Lanka as well we fry far too many things to mention here. Usually for lunch and supper some fried fish, “papa dams” dry red chilies or at least dry sprats are fired.

Some energy can be saved with low fire cooking that means you must not waste energy unnecessarily. There are many acceptable reasons why one should cook on low fire. One of the reasons is then only the water in the form of juice in foods such as vegetables, fish and meat come out slowly or ooze out then slowly react and interact with the spices or margarine or butter in the cooking pan.

The way the body and the brain regulate food intake is extremely complex and involves multiple hormones and neural circuits. I must say one cannot give enough evidence in one simple article, certainly it takes more but the general public might not be bothered to read if the article is too long, so I am making it summarised. The actual digestive process and the reasons why fructose is the worst will be explained in a later article.

When some energy giants put the prices up by 10% who gets affected, it’s the millions of customers who use gas and electricity. Even the British Prime Minister, Rt Hon David Cameron states that is “wrong” to do so due to various reasons but I wonder if the energy giants would reverse the increase.

Then only juice in foods such as vegetables and meat come out slowly, ooze out then slowly react with the spices or margarine or butter etc. Many people just put fire at full blast and cook then likely to burn the whole thing because the liquid evaporates quickly. Sometimes I leave the food to cook very slowly then does some work in the kitchen or else go to the computer or watch the TV.

When food is prepared in hotels and in takeaways, would they take enough care in food preparation?
