187 – When I Started Cooking…..
Before I went to Amsterdam, I cooked only when mom was not at home. In the first three months in Amsterdam, my room mate did the cooking not allowing me to cook. He somehow knew that I cannot cook. But I did know how to cook.
It was not until I moved to another house and with an Indian Family, that cooking became a necessity rather than an option. Vijay, who taught me everything I know about cooking would make me help him in the kitchen. He loved cooking.
He made me cut the vegetables, chicken, onions etc. I was a novice then and needed lots of practice to cut properly without cutting myself.
But in those early days, accidents did happen!
