Tito Mboweni is back in the kitchen and this time the former finance minister is whipping up a "nice and tasty" lamb curry.

Like with all Tito's recipes, Twitter users were not convinced that he would be able to pull it off. Things got off to a rocky start when the politician shared a picture of his ingredients,

Many Twitter users noted that his garlic to onion ratio was not adding up, saying there was way too much garlic for a pot of lamb curry. 

"How much do you spend on garlic per month?" one Twitter user asked. 

Another user added: "You still need to work on your chopping skills, and that's too much garlic ntate Tito." 

A third person wrote: "3 onions and 20 garlic [cloves]."
