My Simple Kitchen - Simple Cooking Ingredients

Can't do without these every week. They are the "must have" in my kitchen! They appear in the fridge every week!

Simple condiments and cooking oil : Sesame oil, any vegetable oil ( I will usually rotate) , salt, sugar and pepper. I usually use pepper and sesame oil while my hubby prefers salt for seasoning.
We usually cook during the weekday and dine out during weekends. We usually do not put much condiments to our food. Usually, we prefer to cook with fresh ingredients rather than using canned food. Cooking with food such as carrots, pumpkin, red dates makes the dish taste naturally sweet. While cooking with food such as tomatoes, pineapples makes the dish sour.

When it comes to seasoning, I would most of the time leave it as it is or add some pepper. I love to use sesame oil because it makes food smells extremely delicious.

So usually, 1 L of cooking oil can last us for about half a year, 1kg of salt last between half a year to 1 year. The 500g of sugar could last us for a pretty long time, depending on whether I am making any cakes, bread or desserts.

We are not that health conscious but just try to eat more plainly so that Little One would not indulge too much on sugar and salt.

You may be surprised at the rate of salt consumption. We used them to wash our vegetables and fruits.in salt solution. How do you wash your vegetables and fruits? Do you use condiments? Which are your favorite?
