  • To make clear and transparent vegetable stock, don't use beetroot or reddish. 
  • Use the stock to make pasta, veg curry, pulao, or soup. 
  • Make sure to use fresh vegetables.
  • Stale veggies can add bitterness to stock. 
  • If the soup is bitter in taste then add little sugar with freshly squeezed lemon juice. 
  • It's better to cook stock on low heat for about 40 to 45 minutes to extract all the juices from veggies.
