Magical command for turning one bowl of soup into two at no added cost.

Small print:
1. Immense concentration required to ignore the fact that the two new bowls are smaller than the original bowl, and the soup is considerably watered down.
2. Works in India only. Any attempt to use command outside the borders of the country will result in confused stares and much ridicule.

Desi Mem (interrupts): Make it one into two no?
Englis Babu: ???
