Flash cook all your veggies, so says F
You’ll soon be hailed the Master Chef
High heat and pressure add colours to your plate,
While the taste, texture and crunch remain great !
Use Grits to cook, is what G stands for
Making it easier to cook fast and more
Match your dals and veggies as they cook
While you marvel at the less time it took !
H might sound like a bit of chemistry,
Hydro distillation is what is behind this mystery
Extract the deep flavours with water or steam
Come on, it’s not as tough as it does seem !
Do you want to match your cooking times?
I for Inner Pot is how this rhymes
Put a small pot inside the bigger one,
And spacing out zones is rightly done !
JEL your dishes, here is your J ,
‘Just Enough Liquid’ is what we say
The dish absorbs the water, be it pasta or rice
Cook your starches with JEL, you’re wise !
Key Building Blocks make up K for you,
Just learn the base of what you do
To whip up infinite recipes across cuisines
Think over the themes, by all means !
Key Building Blocks make up K for you,

Layering is what you must learn to do,
Arranging the elements in layers, as L tells you
Just so your dish gets saved from a burn
And the perfect flavour, you rightfully earn!
MPOS cooks volumes, says our M
Of all OPOS techniques, this is a gem
Use multiple vessels inside your Magic Pot
To cook up that dainty feast in one shot !
To let your little ones don the cook’s hat
Just to make them happy for belling the cat
N , the No Cutting – Futting technique is here
Choose your dishes wisely, knives stay clear!
Reduce the fat with O, cook Oil-free
May your food contain less oil or ghee
Less salt, less spice, OPOSed food
With less additives, it tastes as good !
Nest all ingredients in many zones
Inside the same vessel which owns
The dish, and you’re into your Q,
That’s Queued-up Cooking for you!
