Paradigm shifts in cooking practices in our householdsThere was a time when grandma prepared all the spices, chutneys and otter speciality masalas by her own hands and spiced up the home food with it. Though the grinding, peeling and grating gadgets of that time were a bit primitive but they were used in the best of the ways to produce the tastier and yummy dishes.
Today, there is a big change as we all are observing in our cooking practices. For each and every action there are a plethora of kitchen aids available. Electric Grinders and Mixers are a common thing. Ovens and Grills are used in most of the households. All types of tools are available.
Still, we do not use them much because most of the times we have the readymade spices for different different dishes. Even for preparing a particular dish the readymade powder is available in the market. Those who can afford usually get the food delivered from outside 2-3 times in a week specially in weekends.
So, our cooking practices have changed drastically and I feel there is a remarkable change from the earlier times.
