The dal rice syndrome

Each time I cook dal rice, invariably this episode happens:

I put the dal in one pressure cooker and put on the flame.

Next, repeat with rice.

Both the pressure cookers have been put to heat at the same time.

With a small difference:

The pressure cooker containing dal, has already had three whistles, while the one containing rice hasn’t had a single one till now.

The cooker with dal is preparing for its fourth and final one, while all of a sudden, the one with rice blows its four whistles back to back.

After this, the dal also gives its fourth whistle and both the flames are shut off.

Here’s the lesson this preparation teaches me every single day:

It may take time for your whistle to metaphorically blow, yet when it does, it’s just the best one.

Be patient and keep up your hard work, all will be fine at the end, as it did to rice.
