What Is Baking?

Baking is a method of cooking that involves the use of dry heat, typically in an oven, to cook a variety of foods such as bread, cakes, and pastries. It is a popular way to prepare a wide range of sweet and savoury dishes, and it can be used to create a variety of baked goods, from simple cookies and muffins to elaborate cakes and pastries. 

To bake, you will need an oven and a baking pan or dish

Baking In OTG

An OTG, or oven toaster grill, is a small, electric oven that is designed for home use and can be used for a variety of cooking purposes, including baking. 

OTGs are typically smaller and more compact than a traditional oven, and they typically have a smaller capacity, but they can still be used to bake a variety of baked goods such as bread, cakes, cookies, and pastries. To use an OTG for baking, you will need to preheat the oven according to the recipe instructions, and then place the baking pan or dish inside. 

You may need to adjust the cooking time and temperature slightly, as OTGs can vary in their heating and cooking performance. It is a good idea to use an oven thermometer to ensure that the temperature inside the OTG is accurate

Baking in Pressure Cooker

It is possible to bake some types of foods in a pressure cooker, although it is not a traditional method of baking and may require some adjustments to the recipe and cooking process.

 A pressure cooker is a type of pot with a tight-fitting lid that seals in steam, creating a high-pressure environment inside the pot.

 This high pressure can help to cook food faster, but it can also alter the texture and moisture content of the food.

To bake in a pressure cooker, you will need a pressure cooker and a separate baking pan that is safe for use in a pressure cooker.some people also prefer to add sand to the bottom 

 You will also need to adjust the recipe and cooking time to account for the pressure cooking process.

 It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions for using the pressure cooker and to use caution when handling the hot, pressurised pot.

Process for baking in OTG

Baking in Convection Mode

Convection mode is a setting on some ovens that circulates hot air around the oven using a fan, allowing the food to cook more evenly and potentially faster than in a traditional oven. 

To bake in convection mode, you will need an oven with a convection setting and a recipe that specifies convection baking.

It is also a good idea to rotate the baking pan or dish halfway through the cooking time to ensure even cooking. You may also need to experiment with the convection setting to find the best results for your particular oven and recipe.
