Why soak bamboo skewers in water?
The skewers are thin and they can catch fire when you use them on the grills. When the skewers are soaked in water, they retain the water inside them. When put on the grill, the water does not allow the skewers to get cooked and eventually burnt along with the food. Hence, bamboo skewers need soaking in water before use.
