Cooking isn't rocket science. But, you need to know some basics before you start experimenting in the kitchen.

If you are beginner you might find managing kitchen a bit tough. Here are some tips for the beginners that should be kept in mind.

1. Make sure you read the recipe properly before you begin. Read it twice. Try to stick to the recipe. Don't improvise a lot. Once you’re cooking skills improve you can be as adventurous as you want.

2. Prepare and organise ahead of time. Keep your ingredients prepared before you start cooking. Chopping vegetables may take a lot of time for first timers. So you should chop all the vegetable you will be using.

3. Make sure you have proper kitchen tools. A good knife is very important. Apart from a good knife you need to have proper measuring spoons. The usual spoons we eat in are not precise and there size varies depending upon the design of the spoon. You can buy a set of proper measuring spoons.

4. Know your spices. To be a good cook you have to know the smell and taste of the spices before you use it in your dish. Remember, you can’t take ingredients away once they’re in. This is especially true with salt. Build up a recipe slowly.

5. Last but not the least. Be ok with failing. Don't get stressed, even great cooks have thrown away food. You might not get the dish correct the first time but you will learn.
