Celebrity nutritionist Pooja Makhija set a health challenge test for home cooks of MasterChef India, asking them to come up with a nutritious dish in the latest episode of Season 8 of the cooking reality show.
“Bringing the Health Challenge to the MasterChef India kitchen has been incredibly rewarding. It was exciting to witness the passion these home cooks exhibited while balancing the nutritional aspects of their creations,” said Pooja. She described the challenge as a reminder that great cooking always combines the aspect of taste and nourishing the body .
Talking about her own experience during the challenge, home cook Kriti said she found herself in a spot when she learned that she had to prepare a nutritious dish from dark chocolate. “Its intense flavour required a delicate balance to ensure it complemented the overall dish. This challenge has taught me the importance of experimenting with diverse ingredients to create a balanced blend of flavours,” she added.
Chefs Vikas Khanna, Ranveer Brar and Pooja Dhingra are the judges of Season 8 of MasterChef India, which is currently streaming on SonyLIV every day from Monday to Friday at 8pm.
