The mouthwatering Panipuris are a favorite of Australian Masterchef Brent Owens.

“Masterchef Australia 6” winner Brent Owens loved popular Indian street snack Panipuri so much that he has decided to experiment with it for a new exotic dish. A PTI report.

Brent Owens was in New Delhi, Apr. 17, to promote the new season of the cooking reality show on Star World Premiere, when he tried on different Indian delicacies and street food.

“I had sev puri, panipuri, pav bhaji and vada pav. It was spicy but it was nice. I liked panipuri the most. I would like to re-create that snack in my kitchen.

“It feels great to be in India. I wanted to try as much Indian food as I could. I was very curious to know about Indian cuisines because in Australia we have our own take on Indian food, which is not at all like the real cuisine.” Owens told PTI.

While describing his journey in the cooking reality show as “emotional,” Owens said there were many ups and downs during the competition but he has only positives to take from it.

“My journey of ‘Masterchef’ was a mixed bag. You have various emotions. There are some points in the competition that are difficult but overall it is fun.

“Now when I reflect back at it, everything looks positive to me, all the ups and downs, the failures, the trials and errors, missing my family…” he said.

When asked about his future plans, the chef said, “I would like to have my own first package real business. In Australia, everyone is busy and they like to have food on the go so that will be a healthier option. I would also like to bring a TV show,” he said.
