Nayanjyoti chose to represent his hometown Tinsukia in his platter. He prepared curried crab for starters, followed by an Assamese-style duck and presented a mixed berry sorbet for dessert.
“From now on, whenever people take your name, they will refer to you as MasterChef Nayanjyoti. Get used to it,” chef Garima told the home cook after the latter clinched the winner’s trophy.
During the auditions of MasterChef India 2023, chef Vikas Khanna went to Assam and brought Nayanjyoti along as a participant. The Michelin-star chef had seen Nayanjyoti’s cooking skills on Instagram and wanted him to be part of the competition. “I was so impressed by his vision and creativity and how he can turn food into art. He inspired me through his social media posts, so I decided that he was the right fit for MasterChef India,” chef Vikas had said during the auditions.
