Getting Ready for the Big Celebration (Part 2)

Getting Ready for the Big Celebration Part 2

Last week we talked about how sparkling water can make you and your house look flawless for Hari Raya. Today we will explore more on how we can use sparkling water in our cooking.

3. Cooking and Baking

During Hari Raya, we want to serve food that is delicious, fluffy, juicy and pretty for our loved ones. Bihun Soup is a must have during Hari raya which is usually served with side dished such as shredded chicken breast, various boiled vegetables and sambal. When it comes to cooking vegetables, sparkling water has proven to be effective in decreasing oxidation and the denaturing of chlorophyll and carotenoid pigments, helping to preserve the vegetables’ color. What’s more, sparkling water also appears to soften vegetables. Cooking times can be decreased, allowing you to better preserve more of the vegetables’ vitamin content.

Other than that, sparkling water can also be used in baking. The carbon dioxide in sparkling water helps to rise the dough which makes it fluffy. The lightening effect of sparkling water in dough happen when the bubbles create pockets of air (trapping water droplets in the process) that expand under heat, giving the final product a lighter texture.

4. Make Drinks

Last but not least, sparkling water can be used to make various fun and delicious drinks to serve your guests during Hari Raya. After all that eating actions jumping from house to house, your guest might need a refreshing drinks. It is said that drinking sparkling water will settle the issue of indigestion and constipation.
