People across India are suffering in the blistering heat.

While his fellow citizens moaned about the weather, an upbeat villager in Titlagarh, Odisha, where the mercury has hit a blistering 45.5 degree Celsius, treated the heat wave as an opportunity to do some outdoor cooking. He was seen placing a frying pan on a sizzling-hot street and breaking an egg into it. Ten seconds later, he had a fully cooked snack.

It comes as no surprise that the video of the culinary feat has gone viral.
