This chart will help you in converting recipe measurements according to your preference. I have given temperature chart, cups and weight chart and teaspoons and weight chart for your use.
First we will deal with Oven Temperatures. In India, you can see ovens marked with Celsius whereas while reading recipes from US bloggers, I come across temperature in Fahrenheit. This conversion chart can be used while converting temperatures. I usually give recipes with Celsius. So if you want to see what it is in Fahrenheit, please go through the chart.
|225F – 110C|
|250F – 130C|
|275F – 140C|
|300F – 150C|
|325F – 165C|
|350F – 175C|
|375F – 190C|
|400F – 200C|
|425F – 220C|
|450F – 230C|
|475F – 245C|
|500F – 260C|
Next we will deal with cup measurements. The cups shown below are those I use in my day to day cooking. There are 4 cups ranging from 1 cup to 1/4 cup. I will give the equivalent weight of cup measures so that you can easily convert my recipes. For every ingredient the weight varies for one cup. I am trying to give you the weight of most used ingredients below.
|Cup Measurement (1 cup)||Weight in Grams|
|Quick Cooking Oats||100|
Teaspoons and Tablespoons:
Teaspoons and tablespoons also form an important part of measuring equipment. Usually oil, salt, baking powder, honey and baking soda are measured using spoons. There is a basic formula used in calculating the grams.
1 Teaspoon ————-5 gm
2 Teaspoons———-10 gm
3 Teaspoons————–15 gm
1 Table spoon —————–3 teaspoons
1 Table Spoon—————-15 gm
Teaspoon is usually referred as tsp and Table spoon is referred as tbs in my recipes. Using this chart you can always convert the given tsp and tbs measurements to gm.
Having a measuring jar in the kitchen is useful in many ways. Measuring liquids is very easy when you have a jar. This jar measures up to one litre which is equal to 5 cups. Measuring milk, water and cream for baking is easier when you have this. But if you have only cups then 1 cup of any liquid equals 200 ml. You need to calculate accordingly.
