To cook or not to cook

Updated: Aug 3

khichdi in the making

The grand perils of cooking

the steaming hot khichdi in the making:

to stir and when to stir

the eternal dilemma while tasting.

The proportion of spices is the

door to its fame,

if gone wrong, will make it lame.

One pinch less or one pinch more

that salt is the king to the core.

fork and knife

To cook or not to cook?

my mind approaches me every day

the fork and the knife

awaiting at the table

answers without delay.

To feed your mind

and stomach of your dears

a day off is always so rare.

A mother must cook

if not a wife

a smile beams on your face

when in a full stomach

your child cheers in grace...
