Removing Food from Cooking Pot

May one remove food from a hot but not fully-cooked pot of food? What if the consistency is very thin?
Thank you


I assume you are referring to Shabbos.One may not remove food from a pot that is still in the cooking process. By removing food we are concerned that he will cause a slight stirring motion in the pot and cause the cooking to go faster, which is prohibited. Even a thin consistency would be a problem, because even the removal of some of the contents can cause the cooking to go faster.
