Wow. One of my most memorable challenge in Masterchef Tamil. Cooking in a 5 star jwmarriott kitchen was an wonderful experience. It was an team challenge. Myself, Kritaj, Mani, Devaki, Sumitra and Vinny was in a team. I was chosen as team captain. It was an three course menu challenge. Me and Kritaj was incharge of main course and we made paalada pottalam(if you want the recipe, it is in my channel)

Judges love the food and the plating of paalada pottalam. It was an amazing feeling.

My team mates were rocking. Everyone did a great job. We don’t even know how the 90minutes went by. I couldn’t have done this without my team mates. Thankful to each and everyone of my team. I was so worried whether our team would go to the balcony or not, because as a captain I got that responsibility. Thank god we won that challenge. Such a proud moment.
