US Measuring Cups Are Used For All Recipes  (1 cup = 240ml)

If you are beginner in cooking, I would recommend measuring all the ingredients and preparing them before you start making the recipes. Once you get used to the process and method of cooking and you get some knowledge, you can go by andaaz method (eyeballing the ingredients). But still for baking recipes, desserts or to get the perfect restaurant style taste, I highly advise to measure the ingredients properly.

For measuring ingredients, I always use the US measuring cups and spoons. below is the commonly used cups and spoon measuring chart which becomes handy, if you are making double the recipe or cutting it into half or so on.
