Thanks to the lockdown around the world, various sporting events including IPL has been called off. But Kolkata Knight Riders discovered a fun way to start an interesting contest & keep its followers engaged. In a cook-off contest held between Isa Guha and Sandeep Warrier. It was Isa who hailed ‘The great Bengali Cook’s’ title. They were given the task of preparing Kolkata’s traditional dish “Loochi” with “Chholar Daal”. Isa who is a Bengali had an advantage in the cook-off as they set off trying to prepare “Loochi” along with “Chholar Daal”. As the cook-off reached its final stage it was quite evident that Sandeep was confused by the array of Isa’s perfect deliveries.
“It’s compulsory that it should come in the shape of a circle?” Sandeep asked as he tried to roll out a loochi and the task became more and more difficult as he was progressing in the cook-off. In the end, it was a no-contest situation as Sandeep Warrier finally made a loochi that looked more like the dark side of the moon.
With IPL and all the major sporting activities around the world came to a standstill due to the ongoing lockdown, cricketers & commentators are trying to keep themselves busy and the competitive spirit on by undertaking such exercises on the Internet.
