Poaching:

Why: Firstly, do not confuse poaching with boiling, you do not throw the water away. Poaching involves using water, broth, milk or wine; when one of these ingredients is simmering, add the meat or vegetables to it. The raw product cooks in this broth, and this same broth is used later to make a sauce for the dish. With poaching you do not lose any vitamins and minerals that you would when you boil your food. This is a shallow style poaching.

But you can also poach your product in shallow style where the ingredient is cooked in less amount of water and is not brought to the boil. And you still use the broth with the vitamins for the dish.

Health Benefits of poaching: Poaching is a great cooking method for healthy eating. You do not have to use oil; you have the core nutrients in the same dish and this makes it easier to digest. It is beneficial for those who want to retain nutrients in food for various deficiencies and for weight conscious people.

Ideal food for poaching: Veg and non veg products are friendly when it comes to poaching. But chicken and fish make some of the best dishes with the poaching method.
