Why the kitchen has become our sanctuary during lockdown
The nearly 70-day lockdown have taken many into their kitchens; even busy startup founders have discovered the joy of cooking
NEW DELHI : Kanika Tekriwal, founder of JetSetGo, an aviation startup, describes her pre-lockdown self as a “Maggi-omelette type cook". She would order meals in most days but the threat of the virus ended that habit. Three days into the lockdown, Tekriwal, 32, dusted her oven, untouched since the day it entered her south Delhi house a year ago, and baked a banana cake. “My housemates (her help and seven-month-old terrier) approved of it," she laughs. Since then, Tekriwal cooks about six times a week. She’s tried everything from Baked Egg Avocado Boats to quinoa bread, and shares it with her neighbours, whom she rarely spoke with before the lockdown.
