The months-long lockdown imposed across India in the wake of the pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for the few, though it crippled life and economy along the length and breadth of the nation. This phase of inertia saw the undisturbed pursuit of interests and hobbies in many households.

SN Lakshmi Sai Sri, a teenager from Tamil Nadu, is one of the young Indians who made an impact during the pandemic. She broke all the records in cooking on Tuesday, December 15. She got her name etched as the fastest cook in the UNICO Book of World Records for cooking 46 dishes in 58 minutes. The moment her remarkable achievement hit headlines, she became an internet sensation. A picture of the dishes she cooked only in 58 minutes has gone viral.

Lakshmi Sai Sri even broke the record that 10-year-old Saanvi M Prajit set by cooking 33 dishes in one hour in October 2020. Notably, it was Saanvi’s talent and achievement that inspired Lakshmi to make such an impossible feat. Lakshmi’s journey to earning a name for herself in the UNICO Book of World Records began during the countrywide lockdown. It was only then she developed a passion for cooking and her mother got ample time to help her master the art of fast cooking.

Being motivated by her father to break Saanvi M Prajit’s culinary record, SN Lakshmi Sai Sri made the most of her quick-learning ability. She would spend time helping her mother and following her instructions in the kitchen. Thus she learned the nitty-gritty of cooking various dishes from the cuisine of Tamil Nadu. She was eyeing on setting a new world record in cooking, while other kids of her age were trying to adjust to online learning during the lockdown.

Recently, Arun Rajadurai, a chef from Tamil Nadu in the United States, made international headlines for offering rasam as a complimentary immunity booster to Americans. Rasam, a South Indian staple, became the most sought after food in some parts of the US and Canada during the pandemic.
