Indian food has been delighting people across the world. US VP Kamala Harris shared two of her favourite foods from the country - Idli and Tikka. Actor-producer Mindy Kaling whipped up a Dosa at home, and Padma Lakshmi shared her go-to recipe for Tamarind Rice. It isn't just Indians abroad that are all praises for Indian food, and a recently surfaced video is proof. An Indian chef, Depinder, is participating in the most-loved reality cooking show - Masterchef Australia - currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar Premium. She impressed judges on the show by cooking up a delicious and home-style Tiffin meal. Take a look:
Shared on IGTV by the official Masterchef Australia handle, the video has been viewed over 141k times and counting. In the 2 minutes 16-second clip - Indian chef Depinder explains to the judges what she made for them. She created a Tiffin-style meal comprising several dishes neatly packed in a single plate. The dishes that Depinder made included Chickpea curry aka Chhole, Kadhai Paneer, Cauliflower-stuffed Paranthas, stir-fried rice topped with fried Okra chips and her grandmother's pickle recipe.
The Masterchef Australia judges tried the dishes prepared by chef Depinder, and they couldn't help showering praises on her. They especially loved the pickle that she prepared with her grandmother's recipe. "Keep cooking with the same emotion," said judge Andy Allen. Depinder got emotional and told the judges that this was food that she had grown up eating and was typically made at her home. Judge Melissa Leong asked, "Can we come over to your home?" The judges then asked Deepinder to keep cooking with the same emotion and open a restaurant serving this kind of food to which Deepinder said, "That's the plan!"
