How To Avoid Over-Flowing Of Milk- Tuesday's Tip

All of us have to boil milk so that it does not curdle and produce stale smell. There are so many Indian recipes which requires boiling milk, like making paneer/cottage cheese, making deserts like sandesh, rasgulla etc. Boiling the milk can be a tricky task; one has to stand and guard so that milk doesn't overflow. There is an easy tip that if followed will help to avoid milk over flowing.

If milk over flows your stove and the vessel gets stained. You not only have to bother cleaning the stains but also have to pour some extra milk to replace the milk that has wasted in over flowing
Here is the quick tip. Before you pour milk into the pot for boiling, rub butter/ghee/oil along the top edge and the inside lip of the pot. Due to this, the milk won’t overflow when it foams up.

I have tried this so many times and yes it is effective. So stop gaurding the boiling milk and use that time to do something else.Do try this and let me know :-) See you with another tip on next Tuesday.
