Strange culinary discoveries

Telephonic discussion with my cousin, trapped ovenless in Bangalore, resulted in some googlin and some discussion of strange culinary shortcuts. For example, you can use a pressure cooker (prestige not hawkins) as an oven! Simply heat it waterless till its hot, put the batter in a flat bottom steel vessel and put it directly on the bottom of the cooker, close and cook on low flame without the weight.

The cousin told me that discovering she had no baking powder she consulted the Powers that Internet and successfully made pancakes with yogurt and coke as a substitute.

Any such stories from ye peoples?
