I am pretty new to cooking since i never had to cook in the past. My mum used to do the cooking always and i was very lazy to learn cooking. When my mum used to tell me to learn some cooking on my own because i may need it in the future when i am not living with them anymore. I didn't listen to her. But now, i am away living by myself in a university residence place while studying for a graduation that i like. So i started to learn cooking by myself and i am surprised there is so much to learn about cooking. I always thought that cooking was simple and anyone can do it easily. Cooking as i thought was meant for people who have no other skills in life. I was wrong. i realized how important cooking can be in life and that i can't go on eating food bought from restaurant daily.
Those restaurant food are very unhealthy although they taste great and it is very tempting to feast on restaurant food. For one reason, the outside foods are expensive and they aren't healthy in the long run. I know an uncle who passed away eating outside food from the restaurant daily. He had just retired from his work and he mentioned that he wants to start enjoying life by eating whatever he loves and that he could now afford the lifestyle he always wanted. Seeing this happened to him made me scary and i wouldn't want to develop some health problems at such a young age. I try and cook whatever i can think of and when i run out of ideas to cook, i do a search online to get some ideas on what to cook.
Somehow, i feel i could be doing something wrong that is making the wok or pan very sticky and the food sticks to the wok or pan very often. I have an old non stick cooking pan and i damaged it once before by using a steel scrubber to scrub the surface of the pan. So now, when i cook food using the same pan, the food gets stuck to the pan and it gets burnt. In order to prevent food from burning i poured water on the food. This is an okay method to prevent burning but sometimes i just wanna stir fry food and not make gravy items. I can't do that because the food sticks easily to the pan. If anyone can give me a tip on how to prevent food from sticking to the wok or pan, it would be very helpful of you.
