Lockdown is the new normal these days and like we mentioned in our previous article it is also time time to learn something new, to do something we never did, to enhance our skill set for the coming challenges. As a hobby chef, for me it’s all about learning something new to cook or to know the kitchen and the ingredients a little more better.
So let’s get started and learn how to easily and quickly make the famous 5 Spice Powder mix used in asian cuisine around the globe.
