MasterChef India is a popular Indian reality show that follows a group of contestants cooking for different tasks who compete against each other to win the Masterchef title. The show is currently on its sixth season and the judges for this season are Vikas Khanna, Ranveer Brar, and Vineet Bhatia.
In the latest episode of the show, the contestants were given a task to complete to move forward and earn immunity. The judges Ranveer Brar and Vikas Khanna presented the task and the contestants had to prepare dishes of either hibiscus or cactus. The winner of the last weekend, Akash, got the chance to choose who will use hibiscus and who will use cactus.
Abinas Nayak from Odisha was given hibiscus to use as the key ingredient in his recipe. The chef had never used hibiscus ever before in any of his recipes. Taking up the challenge, Abinas prepared a quirky traditional dessert dish from Odisha, Mandara Rasagulla. The judges, Ranveer Brar and Vikas Khanna seemed highly impressed by the presentation and especially the taste of the dish. Later, Abinas's Mandara Rasagulla became the recipe of the day. He also got his own place in Masterchef Grand dish.
Sharing his feelings on social media he said, "My Masterchef journey started with an Odia dish Chicken Besara because one of my main intention was to celebrate my Odia cuisine with the whole world. And today I feel so proud again that my Rendition of our Rasagulla, Mandara Rasagulla (Hibiscus flower stuffed Rasgulla) got the best dish of the day and got a place on Masterchef Grand dish wall where it will remain forever."
He also mentioned the co-contestant, Smrutisree Singh, who is also a part of the Masterchef Grand dish wall because of her quirky Odisha dish Nadia Kadali Kakara Pitha.
