When I got married, I was a total novice at cooking. All I knew was how to cook Maggi noodles and prepare tea. My husband is a foodie and a self proclaimed food tasting expert. So, I was quite nervous when I stepped into the kitchen for the first time post marriage. However, after few weeks of trial and error and some expert directions from my mother-in-law over the phone, I realized that I can cook. Not only that I started to enjoy it.
Now, after 3 years, cooking is something that I am most passionate about.
My husband hates to go on team dinners as he misses my cooking. That is probably the best compliment I have received for my cooking.

When I started making chapattis, I really struggled to get the chapattis round. It took 2-3 days of effort and a couple of useful tips from my husband to get it right.
For a beginner who is learning to cook, I would suggest to have patience while cooking because perfection does not come in a day. As you go on cooking, day by day you will notice improvement in your cooking and you will start making your own improvisations. With experience, one can certainly become an expert.
Patience and Love.

Long time ago when I was in college, I had prepared Aloo curry. I simply boiled water, added spices and added cut potatoes. The outcome was a disaster which I too could not eat.
