MasterChef India

MUMBAI: As the Top 10 contestants are pulling out all the stops to prove their culinary skills and secure their place in the running for the coveted title, new challenges by guest judges are testing their patiences. In the latest episode, MasterChef India welcomes one of India’s top pastry chefs, Chef Tejasvi Chandela as a guest judge. With pleathora of knowledge she brings a tantalizing twist: the Liquid to Dessert Challenge, pushing the contestants to their creative limits.

In this unique challenge, the home cooks face a daunting task where each home cook is handed a drink to taste. Their challenge? To infuse the essence of the drink they taste into a delectable dessert. The twist? The pantry is sealed and the only ingredients they can use are the ones provided to them. Embracing the challenge, Subhojit Sen is armed with the flavours of Kahwa, whereas, Mohammed Aashiq channels the refreshing essence of Gazpacho. On the other hand, Prachi Agarkar ingeniously transforms the zest of Pani Puri into a delightful Pani Puri Sorbet, capturing the flavour of the popular street food. Harish Closepet incorporates the soothing notes of Khus Sharbat into his creation whereas Nidhi Sharma faces the challenge of tasting Pinacolada for the first time. Who will impress the judge with their creation is something to watch out for in the episode.

Reflecting on this innovative challenge, Chef Tejasvi Chandela remarked, “The Liquid to Dessert Challenge was a true test of the home cooks’ ability to balance flavours and creativity, all while retaining the taste of the drink of their choice. However, the challenge was not just about replicating flavours, it was also about capturing the essence of the chosen drink in a dessert. I was bowled over by the passion and dedication displayed by each contestant to rise to the occasion, creating such innovative dishes under pressure and with limited ingredients.”

Nidhi Sharma, who took on the daunting task of mirroring Pinacolada’s flavour in her dessert, commented, “Tasting Pinacolada for the first time was a challenge in itself. I was unsure if I could recreate its taste but I was determined to give it my best. It was incredibly rewarding to see that the flavours came out beautifully in my Pinacolada Panna Cotta. The Liquid to Dessert Challenge pushed me beyond my comfort zone and helped me add yet another feather to my cap.”

As the competition intensifies, MasterChef India continues to raise the bar for culinary excellence, one episode at a time. Under the guidance of this season’s esteemed judges – Chef Vikas Khanna, Chef Ranveer Brar, and Chef Pooja Dhingra, the show unfolds exclusively on Sony LIV, setting new benchmarks in the world of gastronomy.
