The Secret 

TEJ PATTA (Bay Leaves)

Many people add bay leaves to their foods, especially in the cooking of red meat and poultry. But there are many who don't know why bay leaves are added to food!

When a woman was once asked why, she said, "to flavor the food". If you boil the bay leaves in a glass of water and taste it, it will have no flavor.  So why do we put bay leaves in meat or other food?

 

The addition of bay leaves to meat converts triglycerides to mono-unsaturated fats. 

 

Let's experiment and confirm this! 

 

Cut a chicken into two halves, cook each half in a separate pan and place one half on a bay leaf, and cook the other without a bay leaf. Observe the amount of fat in both pans after cooking!
