Keeping in mind some of my dear readers predicament with regard to measurement of ingredients, on their request, I am doing this post on measuring cups and spoons that I use in my daily cooking and baking. The picture you see above of stainless spoons are the tablespoon and teaspoon that I constantly use for my Indian cooking. I should mention here that often my style of cooking is based on ‘andaz’ (eyeball) measurements and I could go wrong while mentioning the quantity of spices used in a particular recipe. You will have to use your own judgment while working on the recipe.
The red measuring cups and spoons you see above are standard American measurement from IKEA. I use the cups for both Indian cooking and baking while I use the spoons only for baking which requires precise measurement. They are convenient to store requiring less storage space and have the measurements embossed on the handles.
1 cup – 240 ml
1/2 cup – 120 ml
1/3 cup – 80 ml
1/4 cup – 60 ml
1 tbsp – 15 ml
1 tsp – 5 ml
Are you like me where you eyeball the amount of spices/ingredients that go into your cooking? Or do you follow the exact measurements as mentioned in the recipe? Do you also use the tablespoon and teaspoon that I use in my cooking? Do let me know in the comments.
