If you think you’re the worst cook ever, this video will make you feel a little better.

The Coronavirus lockdown is making many people try out new things, I tried to make a simple toor dal for instance. I’d like to believe that I make the best tea in the world but that’s literally the only thing I can “cook” - oh and Maggi too. I know with so much happening in the world, it’s a privilege that my only problem right now is, to make just about edible food to feed myself. So, I will stop complaining right here and share my experience of what it was like to make a very simple dal.

If you, like me, have underdeveloped kitchen skills, you’ll definitely relate to this video.

PS: I know you’ll all have some expert comments on how I should have put more water or I got the quantities all wrong. But, my mom thinks this dal is a culinary masterpiece and that’s enough validation for now.
