Water Sauteing

Cooking without using any oil is a challenge only because it has become a habit. Since I started to cook without a drop of any form of oil, I started to dry sauté the onions, garlic and vegetables.
It’s good to use a non-stick pan or skillet, heat it to a medium heat, add the chopped onion or add the dry spice, say cumin seeds. Onions can be dry sautéed for 5 minutes adding enough water to prevent them from sticking to the pan and stirring them. If you are not using onion, add the cumin or mustard seeds to the heated pan. In a minute they will start to splutter. Add the vegetables and enough water to prevent any sticking to the pan.
Non-stick pans are more conducive to dry or water sautéing, but they are not required.
When any recipe calls for sautéing ingredients, use this technique.
