dazzle daisy (1 year ago)
Hi Mina, I love Indian food. I normally cook them and eat fresh the same day or by 2nd day. How long can I freeze them in freezer for? Thanks. I loved your videos. Subscribed!
The Universe Guru (1 year ago)
+dazzle daisy we usually eat the food within the month but up to 2 months is completely safe and fresh. As long as it's fresh frozen.
Ramya Ganesan (1 year ago)
Hi Mina. I want to try fresh freezing but worried about pouring hot food in plastic containers . Glass box are not suitable to freeze right as it could break if sudden changes in temperature occurs .Plastic I m worried about how hot we can pour.
DrSneha Lade (1 year ago)
The Universe Guru true👌
The Universe Guru (1 year ago)
+Ramya Ganesan the number one reason people fail at pretty much everything is because they try to do it perfectly. I do thinks imperfectly until I can better and better and they become a part of my nature.
Ramya Ganesan (1 year ago)
The Universe Guru True. I have been wanting to try but postponing because of not finding a solution. Thanks for the answer though! 20 min will try.
The Universe Guru (1 year ago)
+Ramya Ganesan my philosophy in life is "you can't win them all". I work on perfecting one thing at a time. Most people are trying to fix so many issues that once that they end up not really achieving much. Just my observation. So for the time being, not having to cook everyday has been a bigger blessing then working about the plastic. I let the meal sit for about 20 mins then pour and move on.

My favorite part was how you seasoned the tandoori chicken. The longer that season marinates, the better it tastes! Like Free to Frugal, my hubby is Jamaican, so he likes me to make curry chicken (all the damn time LOL!!). I'm country honey, I'd never had or even heard of curry anything until I met him. What seasons/spices go into making tandoori chicken? I love to see how you and your hubby get in there and work together. : )
Zakia Ikram (1 year ago)
Wow mina great job
The Universe Guru (1 year ago)
+Zakia Ikram thank you!!

Do you clean your raw chicken and beef before cooking?
whatevs (1 year ago)
The Universe Guru Yes. Do you clean that chicken or beef or whatever meat you get from the butcher before cooking/marinating?
The Universe Guru (1 year ago)
+whatevs raw marinated chicken.

hi mina! been following your videos, and recently subscribed. big fan of your videos and so inspirational! I, too, have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and was curious to know how your symptoms are now - would you please do a video on your progress. also, i came across another video where you said you do intermittent fasting - would you also elaborate on that in a video. i occasionally do a water-fast to reset and ease my joint pain. i am also on a grain-free, dairy-free diet. also, you are using yogurt for the tandoori chicken - is that dairy-free? thanks so much for all your insightful ideas, and sharing them! 😀
