Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke 26th February 2020 Written Update: ABIR AND MISHTI’S COOKING FACE OFF

The episode starts with Kunal and Abir doing yoga. Abir asks Kunal to put down the phone. He says that he needed to check a very important message. Abir says that Uma Patel will remain there only. Kunal tells him that it was Kuhu’s message since maybe they had a small fight yesterday. Abir asks him who is angry and he replies that maybe he is the one who is angry. Kunal is about to tell him what happened and says that they lied on bed but before he could tell what happened next Abir cuts him saying that he doesn’t want to know further since it would be too much information. Kunal says that he needs to listen or else he won’t understand the problem. He starts telling Abir that he and Kuhu were lying on bed and he started going closer to her. Abir cuts him again saying he doesn’t need to hear. Kunal tries telling him that Kuhu kicked him and he fell down but Abir doesn’t listen and leaves saying that he can’t talk about all this with him. Kunal wonders how he will know whose fault it was if he doesn’t tell him. Abir asks him to apologize and end it and leave. Kunal thinks about it.

Abir goes back in his room where Mishti apologizes for him for sleeping till late. He says that she slept too early despite being their first night. Mishti says that everything happened in tension and she felt like she slept peacefully after ages. She accidentaly hits a frame with Abir, Kunal and Meenakshi’s picture and it breaks. She blames herself for not doing anything right and sits on bed wondering how she will win everybody’s heart. She asks Abir not to tell anybody that she broke the frame. Abir sits next to her and asks her sorry. She asks him why she is apologizing. Abir tells him that he isn’t upset with her and he shouldn’t have done such a prank. Mishti says that everyone else must be upset because she woke up late and the first rasoi is not stupid. Abir tells her that it’s not an examination but life and they will be able to celebrate every day if they life it together.

Kunal and Jugnu are discussing about a necklace. Kuhu comes and asks them which necklace. Seeing her, Kunal goes to her and hugs her after making sure that there is nobody around. He apologizes for not checking her message on time since he was doing yoga with Abir. Kuhu tells him that she was planning a surprise for him and thought they will go for a long drive in a red sportscar but they sent a purple sportscar which doesn’t match with her clothes. Kunal smiles and says that thank God she isn’t angry. Kuhu says that thank God he was worried that she could be angry. She asks her about the necklace he was talking about. He reminds her that Nidhi had given her a necklace to keep.

Meenakshi comes and says that she wants to give that necklace to Mishti for her first rasoi. She requests Kuhu to keep the necklace with her safe. Kuhu agrees but tells her that Mishti cannot cook. Meenakshi says that she didn’t know about it but there is no issue and they won’t do this ritual then.
Mishti is worried and shares with Abir that she cannot cook. Abir suggests her to refuse to do the first rasoi ritual. They come downstairs and Mishti takes blessings from Meenakshi touching her feet. Meenakshi says that her place is not in her feet but in her heart.

Kuhu tells Mishti that everyone was planning her first rasoi and she told them that she has nothing to do with cooking. Meenakshi says that there is no need to do this ritual if she doesn’t know how to cook. Mishti says that she wants to try once. Meenakshi asks her if she is sure. Mishti says she is ready. Abir says he is ready too.
Jugnu comes and gives an apricot to Abir and one to Mishti. Abir says that today there will be a cooking face off in the house. Parul comes and says that nothing is off. Abir explains her that Mishti and he will cook two dishes and the one who cooks better will win.

Kunal brings Kaushal in the kitchen and he starts doing commentary for the competition. Everybody is happy and excited. Meenakshi asks Kuhu to bring the necklace from the room. She leaves.

Kaushal acts like SRK and tells Abir and Mishti that they have 20 minutes. Mishti asks who will judge their dishes. Ketki says she will. Kunal says that he isn’t going to eat sweets so he can’t. Meenakshi says that she will eat sweets for sure. Abir tells them that he has called judge from outside. Meenakshi says that it means there is another surprise.

Mishti and Abir start cooking. They share an eyelock as they accidentally come closer. Kunal comments that there is romance going on during work. Mishti says that there is no romance while working but just work and gets back to cook. Abir calls Kunal the biggest enemy of dancing and says that he will complain with his wife about him.
Kuhu comes in the room and gets the necklace box. She opens it and looks at the necklace recalling that Nanu said that this was for Mishti, the most special daughter-in-law of the house. She also recalls fighting with Kunal about the same and then Mishti telling her that she doesn’t want to fight. She shakes her head. She goes in front of the mirror with the necklace. Meenakshi comes and asks her if she was trying it. Kuhu denies it. Meenakshi says that she knows that the necklace is very nice so anybody would like it including her. Kuhu says that it’s ok. Meenakshi says that she has already given a necklace to Mishti and this one should be hers but she has to do more for Mishti because she isn’t happy with her which means that Abir isn’t happt with her too. Kuhu understands her. Meenakshi tells Kuhu that she can try wearing the necklace once and see how it looks and then bring it down. She leaves. \

Kuhu recalls how in the past Rajshri had given her doll to Mishti saying that she is new in the house so she has to think about her more. She gets upset. \

Meanwhile Mishti thinks that she can’t even cook like human beings so how can she cook like Abir. Nidhi asks her to hurry up and says that if it was Kuhu, she would have not become a loser like her. Kunal agrees that Kuhu never loses. Nidhi asks him to help Mishti. Kaushal says that he can’t do that or else Mishti will be out of the competition. He takes everybody out of the kitchen.

Abir tells Mishti that she is going to lose and calls her wifey. Mishti asks really and makes a cute face. He looks at her and tells her that she has chocolate on her face. Mishti asks him to wipe it off. He does that and doesn’t notice that his dish is burning. After noticing that, he calls Mishti a cheater. She laughs and says that everything is fair in love and war. Just then the doorbell rings. Mishti asks who is that. Abir tells him that their judges have come. Mishti hears Vishambharnat’s name and blames Abir for doing it intentionally knowing that she would get nervous. Abir repeats her dialogue that everything is fair in love and war. Mishti says that he is going to lose anyway.

On the other hand Vishambharnat says that Abir called them for a ritual. Nidhi tells him that it’s about the first rasoi. Shaurya says thankfully they ate before coming since Mishti is cooking. Rajshri says that Mishti can cook food. Kuhu comes and says that nobody can eat that food. Varsha asks her to shut up. She goes to hug her parents. Parul asks Varsha not to scold Kuhu who is the happiness of the house.

Kunal comes and explains to the Maheshwaris that a cooking competition is going on between Abir and Mishti. He asks Varsha who would have won if there was a competition between him and Kuhu. Nidhi says that only her Kuhu teacher would win. Meenakshi thanks Kuhu for bringing the necklace from her room.

Rajshri goes to check what is going on in the kitchen and says that it looks like a tornado came on Mishti’s side but it didn’t reach Abir. She compliments him. The whole family comes. Kaushal says that there is smell of something burning. It’s Mishti’s cake which got burnt. Kaushal tells Abir and Mishti that there are 8 minutes left. They all leave.

Meenakshi shows the necklace she is going to give Mishti to Varsha and Rajshri. Kuhu looks at it and is about to hold it but Meenakshi stops her and asks her not to worry since she will let her give the necklace to Mishti. Kuhu sits down. Meenakshi smirks and thinks that she knows what she has done looking at Kuhu who seems worried.
