Why Master Chef Jar?

As it makes wonders like chopping, slicing, grating and kneading in just minutes with the help from our side it is known as master chef jar. Not only for vegetables, but it can also perform all these actions with boneless chicken and mutton.

  • Slicing: Slicing action has a different blade and a separate way of assembling the jar. I have sliced raw banana and prepared raw banana chips. Raw banana was very thinly sliced, so the chips stayed very crispy. All you need is just to peel skin off and insert the banana through the opening in the lid and push it through the pusher.
  • Grating: Grating action has a different blade and a separate way of assembling the jar. I had grated the carrots, and the grated carrots was perfect in shape. The size of the grated pieces depends on the size who chop the carrot pieces and add it to the jar. It was just done within seconds, all you need is to cut the corners of the carrots, peel and drop it through the opening in the lid and push it through the pusher.
  • Chopping: Chopping action has a different blade and a separate way of assembling the jar. I had chopped cucumbers, and minced the boneless chicken. The size depends on the time spend for chopping, all you need is to peel the vegetables or clean the meat, roughly chop them into medium size pieces and add it to the jar, cover with the lid and turning the unit ON.
  • Kneading: Kneading action too has a different blade and the way of assembling the jar is similar to that of chopping. The flour is added to the jar, along with salt and oil, then kneading for few seconds and then pouring of water whenever needed using push through the lid. Here the pusher acts as a measuring cup, one cup(pusher) of flour, there is a marking of the water level in the pusher itself. More over the dough was very soft, the happiest thing was “No Sticky Hands”. I liked this feature like anything, you could also knead batter for bread, and cookie, as this kneading kneads only in one direction.
  • Citrus Bowl and Citrus Cone: Citrus bowl perfectly juices out from mosambi, and make sure to use only big citrus fruits and highly not recommended for lemon. But to be honest I am not that much happy over this citrus bowl, since I feel the manual of citrus juicing is good.

Recipes:

  • Prepared Banana chips using the sliced Banana
  • Prepared Healthy Carrot and cucumber salad – using chopped cucumber and grated carrot. Give a try to the salad, finely chopping of salad, you give a little watery texture to the salad, which helps the olive oil, pepper powder and salt to blend well with salad.
  • Prepared Chicken roll using the Kneading dough and the minced chicken, it all took few mins.
  • Prepared Orange juice using the citrus bowl.

Suggestion: There is one strong and high suggestion, I felt a most and a must to perform activity missing and it’s none other than the “COCONUT SCRAPER”, since Indian kitchen’s never get filled with coconut. From my point of view, I use coconut at least once in two days, may be for a chutney, curry, gravy or in extracting coconut milk. Together with the citrus cone why don’t a scraper fill that place, it would be a perfect Master Chef Jar to all the Indian Kitchen.

Right from my personal experience, I would highly recommend Preethi Zodiac Mixer Grinder for all the Indian Kitchen.

How to use Basic Jars of Preethi Zodiac Mixer Grinder (Making of Chutney, Spice powder and Vada Batter)

How to use Basic Jars of Preethi Zodiac Mixer Grinder (Making of Chutney, Spice powder and Vada Batter)

Recently I have shared the unboxing of Preethi Zodiac, as mentioned in that post this mixer grinder has too many options and can be named as All-in-All in a kitchen. So, I have mentioned to share the usage of each and every jar elaborately with a recipe.

In this post, I am going to share how to make use of the basic jars – Chutney Jar, Wet Grinder Jar and Dry Grinder Jar.

Making of Coconut Chutney, Cumin powder and Medhu Vada Batter using Preethi Zodiac –

I have prepared a basic COCONUT CHUNTEY using chutney jar, also you can grind wet masalas for the curries using this jar. So, a basic south Indian chutney with the Basic Chutney jar –  for the detailed chutney recipe, CLICK HERE. It just took 3 mins to grind the chutney, to the proper texture.

I have prepared CUMIN / JEERA powder using Dry grinder jar, I have roasted the powder with few red chillies, added ½ tsp of rock salt and ground it to a fine powder. After grinding spread it over a plate, store it in an air-tight container and it stays fresh for a couple of months.

I have prepared batter for Medhu vada / ulunda Vadai, using Wet Grinder Jar, usually most of them prefer grinding this vada batter in grinder, but when it comes to me, I have never ever grinded vada batter in grinder, I have been using only my Preethi Mixer till date and the vada comes out fluffy, crispy outside and soft inside. Since Preethi mixer can run for long time without getting hot, makes the batter perfect. Make sure to sprinkle water every now and then when the batter gets struck, also take a break in between will grinding and make sure that you soak the dal/lentil for atleast 4 hrs. For recipe CLICK HERE.

Note:

  • Make sure, to grind only when it reaches room temperature.
  • Hold the lid tightly while grinding, never close the hole at the top of the lid.
  • Turn the speed from 1 to 3, with a minute of interval.
  • Turn the jar and lock the jar, before you start grinding.

Suggestion:

The only thing I suggest here is there is no opening in the top of the dome (lid of mixer jar), it was little difficult to pour water to the jar. When there is opening in the dome, we just open only the lid in the dome and pour water, but now we need to remove the lid and then pour water.
