What's the difference between the following 2 sentences:

"Tokoro" here is something like "right in the middle of" in English. "I'm right in the middle of cooking", for example if you need to make an excuse to get off the phone.

今料理を作っているんだ

The basic meaning is the same but there is less emphasis on the immediacy of the action.
