A recipe is a set of instructions that describes how to prepare or make something, especially a culinary dish.
Modern culinary recipes normally consist of several components
- The name (and often the locale or province or country) of the dish
- How much time it will take to prepare the dish
- The required ingredients along with their quantities or proportions
- Necessary equipment and environment needed to prepare the dish
- An ordered list of preparation steps and techniques
- The number of servings that the recipe will provide (the “yield”)
- The texture and flavour
- A photograph of the finished dish
Some recipes will note how long the dish will keep and its suitability for freezing. Nutritional information, such as calories per serving and grams of protein, fat, and carbohydrates per serving, may also be given.

Goodness of Potatoes
“It’s a surprise for many to discover that one medium potato (5.3 oz) with the skin contains 45 percent of the daily value for vitamin C; as much or more potassium (620 mg) than either bananas, spinach, or broccoli; 10 percent of the daily value of B6; and trace amounts of thiamine, riboflavin, foliate, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, and zinc – all for only 110 calories and no fat” – US Food and Drug Administration
Some interesting potato factoids:
- The potato is the fourth most important food crop in the world after maize, wheat and rice.
- Potatoes contain complex carbohydrates (dietary fibre), which help in improving blood lipid levels, regulating glucose and lowering cholesterol levels.
- Potatoes are naturally free of cholesterol and Trans fats.
