The Indian food has attracted the foreigners for a long time as it is not just yummy but looks beautiful as well. What’s more, the aroma of the spices makes it difficult for anyone to resist the Indian delicacies and the same happened with the judges of the cooking reality show MasterChef Australia 12. The show is being judged by Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen and they loved the Indian food made by a contestant Depinder Chhibber and praised her for her complete Indian meal.
Depinder who is Delhi-born cooked Indian dishes in an episode and when she was asked by the judges what she cooked, she replied that she drew inspiration from the tiffin culture of India.
She cooked kadhai paneer, chickpea curry, fried rice, cauliflower stuffed parantha along with okra chips and her grandmother’s pickle.
The judges not just loved the food but also asked Depinder to give them her grandmother’s pickle separately.
The online users also reacted after seeing the judges going gaga over the Indian food and here are some selected reactions:
Depinder Chhibber was 11 years old when she moved to Newcastle with her family. Presently she lives in Sydney but she says that her heart and soul are always with India. A pharmacist by profession, Dipender is pursuing Masters as of now but nothing can keep her away from her passion which is cooking. Dipender has been heavily inspired from the women of her family – mother, grandmother, etc. and has learned a good number of traditional dishes from her mother.
The Indian food has a separate fan base, hasn’t it?
