You don’t always need to cook with the most expensive ingredients or spices; even simple food cooked with quality ingredients can be delicious when prepared correctly!

Seven Ways To Enhance The Flavour Of Your Meals

  • Incorporate Fresh Herbs At The Right Time

Herbs offer freshness to meals and incorporating herbs like thyme, rosemary or oregano into dishes releases maximum flavour. Adding delicate herbs like cilantro, parsley, chives and basil to cooked dishes makes meals more flavourful and fresh.

Soups like Singapore’s best turtle soup must be flavoured with the right herbs, as herbs help bring out the dish’s hidden flavours and enhance its taste too. 

Using a turtle soup claypot for preparing turtle soups adds an authentic touch and flavour to the dish and further improves its taste.

  • Avoid Prepping Garlic And Onions In Advance

Garlic and onions are highly flavourful and essential cooking ingredients that exhibit sharp flavours which can get overpowering with time. So, when cooking, always cut onions and garlic at the end. To reduce their zest for raw applications, you can soak sliced or chopped onions in a solution of baking soda and water. Ensure to rinse them thoroughly before using them. 


Cooking is an art, and using different ways to enhance the flavour of your meals can even make daily meals delicious! Avoid overcooking your meals as it destroys both the flavours and when cooking, aim at retaining the dish’s flavours, nutrients, texture and overall appeal.

Cooking correctly with the right ingredients can easily enhance the flavours of all dishes, be it regular dishes or exquisite dishes like turtle soups.
