Burnt fingers

I was deep frying some samosas this morning. After frying it, I wanted to use the pan for frying some rice and transferred most of the oil to a small cup which we normally use for this purpose My daughter came into the kitchen asking for milk.

Absentmindedly, I picked up the cup (containing the boiling hot oil), not by it's handle by by the sides.

The pain didn't come immediately but when it did, it was burning hot sensation. Dropped the cup on the floor. Fortunately, it missed my feet or I would have burnt my feet too.

Now I am suffering. Trying to relieve the pain by holding a cup filled with ice. It helps but I can't take my hand away.

Now typing this with my left hand.
