Delicious, rich and tasty food
confines within a bowl
for a scrumptious and flavorful dish of appetite’s
a delightful thought for the soul.
Do you like it? I’m sure, you would!
You see, I can write great verses on Food, experiment with vivid cuisines every weekend, review the aroma and taste of various lip-smacking dishes. Basically, I can write food, relish food, review food, but, if you ask me about cooking, I go like, “Excuse me? I can’t hear you!”
Actually, to tell you the truth, it’s like I’m not deaf, I’m ignoring you! This entire life, I was so engulfed in satisfying my taste buds with rich food and going gaga over its taste and delicacy, that I never paid attention on the cooking aspect of it!
It’s not that I never encountered cooking, I did, which made me realize how I am more good at eating than cooking. I remember trying to elude cooking by giving study or assignment excuses. And In those rare memories when I cooked, my savior in disguise was YouTube! I remember how I used to learn a dish online, a day before I would cook and watch it ‘n‘ times to be sure!
I was this chef-with-many-subordinates because when the day would dawn, I would already have my cousin sisters by my side, helping me to cut the ingredients, so I had utter ease in cooking. And I would behave like I did a great deal of work, as I would present the food with great pride and honor!
The thought of doing the entire cooking- cutting vegetables or assembling the spices, already scares me! But, it happened! Yes, my nightmare did came true.
I remember it very well! My parents had gone out of station for some work and I was home alone. I had high plans of ordering heavy cheese pizza and enjoy it over a nice Disney movie! I so love Disney movies! 🙂
But hey, it was a day to remember right? In actual, I got a call from my granny! She was coming over at our place to stay for the weekend and would reach home, by lunch time. I had to cook food! Granny cannot obviosuly have pizza, so I thought to resort to YouTube for some simple dishes to cook, but I had never made food on my own. I was in complete distress.
This was a mixed surprise! I loved to have granny home, but cooking??? Huh!!
I decided to make Palak Paneer and Roti. I thought I could make it fairly! It took me almost an hour to cut the Paneer in cubes, clean the Spinach leaves, chop onions, assemble the required spices and make the dough.
I finally began to saute the chopped onions in cumin seeds and bay leaf, as per the video instructions, which needed the onions to get golden brown. BUT! I literally burnt the onions and they were more black brown than golden brown. The entire gravy got spoiled and I was devastated!
It was completely unexpected to see that I was really bad at even making simple dishes. This came as a nasty surprise for me!
I know that doing the gravy again would take me time and if it would burn again, granny would be home by then! Hence, I cancelled the entire notion of cooking and decided to order something.
But what and how should I order food which would taste like home?
I googled online to see the TinyOwl Food Ordering App and instantly downloaded it. It has some amazing features-

I selected Paneer and Tandoor Roti as it would be suitable and adequate for a lunch of 2. Since, it was my first order, they gave me a discount of र 100 and I bought the dish at र 291! Isn’t it cool?
TinyOwl was my moment of rescue and a sigh of relief for me! It came as a blissful surprise indeed! And to be frank, I don’t think any other food app would even match the precision and aptness of TinyOwl! It changed my food buying experience for good! 🙂
The food and granny came on time!
While we were having lunch-
“Granny, how you like the food?”
“It’s delicious beta, I know it is ordered!”
“Granny, you know I am not a good cook, so thought to order your favorite dish, so we both could enjoy :)”
“Well, I somewhat loosely know the food fix, saw your efforts in the kitchen!”
And we both laughed!
