Although I’m not a chef from when this lockdown period has been started it has to teach me some items that will definitely be going to add some stars on my shoulders as I didn’t know cooking before the lockdown period.
When the lockdown has been started nobody had an idea that how long it will continue? But as per the condition outside everybody found it better to stay at home and keep themselves safe and healthy. The world seemed that it has stopped and the rush on the roads was emptied, there were no more public places opened, no street food stales were there and no one was going for the metro, gym, school, etc. Every other thing was fine except one thing as I’m a lover of food so those cravings for outside food were making me almost dying. And that was lead me to a new direction to cook better and tasty yet. So, I’m here to share my chaat recipe with you all.
