Each team comprising of a Chef and a Sous Chef along with a local culinary student competed for 2 live challenges:
1. To prepare 3 course menu
2. Mystery challenge

According to Chef Sheetharam Prasaad, The challenge started with the menu planning and purchase of the ingredients at the local market within a specific cash budget.
Time allocated was 90 minutes and it was a nerve racking effort to get the correct quantity of ingredients required for our 3 course meal. The 3 course menu prepared by us included starter, main course and dessert.


Robusty shot with malai murg and tempting galoti on ulti parata and pyazi salat
(green gram smoothie with cream enriched chicken supreme and lamb mince kebab with Indian bread and onion salad)

Main course
Seafood moilee with wilted spinach, red string hopper and botanic poriyal

kesari and khubani ka meetha

Chef Sheetharam added that our meticulous planning with passionate execution was the core recipe which we trusted more than the practical one. The second challenge was
the mystery basket competition, where we were presented with 5 ingredients and we were asked to use minimum 3 ingredients and prepare the dishes. The five mystery ingredients
in our basket were chicken, lotus stem, drumstick, jackfruit and dates.

The classical food had to be cooked by the traditional method using charcoal, mud stove (sigri) and 2 mud pots within 90 minutes. The challenge was compounded by stringent rules
like using only one small knife for chopping given by them. This called for total coordination of the team and make sure that all factors like hygiene, taste, time management and perfect
presentation came together to produce the winning menu. We had to make sure the presentation looks ethnic and we tried to bring in colour combinations. The dishes prepared by our
team were Kozhi chuttathu with yelumichai saadam, kaikari mandi and served traditionally on banana leaf.

Chef Sheetharam proudly showcased the trophy and the gold medals affirming that the highest points were scored by his team in taste and presentation which is an asset of GRT Hotels
