I'm trying to make some Pang Kare-Kare, but I can't figure out how to measure vegetables! How do you get a 1/2, 1/4/ 3/4, etc. out of these?









Obviously I don't dice them and measure, because the recipe doesn't say dice. It just says : 1-1/2 cup of sliced eggplant, 1-1/2 cup of string beans. How in the heck do you measure that? I have to cut them up first, but how big? I have measuring cups, but how do you squeeze a carrot into 1-1/2 cups?

As big as you like.
And generally, with vegetables it doesn't call for 1.5 cups of this, etc., but rather 1 large pepper, 2 large carrots, etc., but if it comes for measurments, just chop em up as small as you like and go measure them.

Throw away your silly recipe books and work by instinct as you should.

I suggest you will then be able to replace the "cup" measure with your own personalized measure called the "curme".

And, in reference to:

www.belowtopsecret.com...

It is possible to do it twice, using tragically politically incorrect obscurities such as the following on-topic submission...



Stanford-Binet is probably the classic tool that actually included this segment in its scope.

Good luck curme!

curme -- did you try the recipe and how did you make out? I had to look up the recipe to see what it was -- looks yummy by the way - but I usually just eyeball the measurements in something like that. Unless you have a scale and want to be pretty specific that is the best way. Baking is more of an exact science but regular cooking and stews especially are easier. I generally do the recipe pretty close to what is written the first time I do one then watch out -- I tend to go hmmmmm some more of this would be good and if you add just a tad of this is would be great -- and luckily I am usually right
