When do I use कम vs थोड़ा ?

कम literally means 'less'. It can be used for comparisons (eg: मेरे पास उससे कम किताबें हैं - I have fewer books than her) or as 'little'/'not much' (eg: हमारे पास बहुत कम खाना है - We have very little food).

थोड़ा means 'some' or 'a little'. Eg: थोड़ा नमक डालिए- Add some salt.

You can even say 'थोड़ा कम' to say 'a little less'.
