Lets face it, in our everyday lives, full of work load, and with paucity of time and the fear of getting the recipe wrong, we are unable to take time out to bake. The general notions behind baking, that it is too much trouble, it takes time, what if the cake collapses or does not rise at all? etc. etc. are now a thing of the past.
And this is what I learned when Usha International, one of India’s leading consumer durables company, hosted a cook out session at Delhi Golf Club, with its Michelin starred brand ambassador, Chef Vikas Khanna.
The event kick started with a live cooking session, where Chef Vikas prepared a beautifully delicate fish and shared some great cooking techniques and tricks for us to inculcate in our kitchen. The smoking technique, whereby you place a hot burning coal in the dish, and then pouring some oil to create fumes, and then sealing it to infuse the smoky flavour, is something that I would certainly try.
The dish was prepared on the recently launched Usha OTG and Usha Halogen Oven, using techniques that are fit for those who are calorie conscious. The OTGs come with convention technology and are perfect for baking, grilling, roasting, slow cooking, braising, toasting, thawing, air frying, bbq and air drying also(sun dried tomatoes anyone?).
Chef Vikas added “Lifestyle and food habits are continuously evolving in India and Usha with its forward-looking approach is enabling us to live this change with new age appliances.”
Also, Mr. Harvinder Singh, President-Home Appliances, Usha International said, “Usha has been continuously innovating and introducing technologically advanced kitchen appliances that not only help consumers lead an active life but also complement their cooking habits – both Indian & world cuisine. ”
Available in 42L, 35L, 29L and 19L capacities, the appliances from Usha are perfect for those who love to bake and even for those who wouldn’t mind experimenting. The ease of cooking paired with multi-functional use, make the newly launched products from Usha a perfect pick, making the conundrums of baking and cooking in an OTG, a passé.
