  • If you use 4 cups of broth or water, use 1 cup of paste.

  • "Parts" is a generic measuring term. If you used four cups of broth or water, you'd use one cup of paste in the example you've given. It's basically using equal measurements across the board. If you used four teaspoons of broth, then you'd use one teaspoon of water. Make sense? : )

  • My guess would be that parts means equal parts so it could be 4 tablespoon broth or water and 1 tablespoon paste or it could be 4 cups broth or water and 1 cup paste.

  • Like if you are making rice, 1 part rice to 2 parts water/broth. That means 1 cup rice to 2 cups water/broth

  • Take the word "parts" and replace it with whatever unit of measure you are using - cup, tsp, tbsp, etc.

    So it would be 4 cups/tsp/tbsp/etc broth or water to 1 cup/tsp/tbsp/etc paste.

  • Or...if you are making sauce (just a guess here), and you have a can of tomato paste, empty that into the pot, then fill the same can with water and dump it into the can 4 times (1 can of paste, four cans of water). I bet that's what they mean....
