Reading Time: < 1 minuteIndian-American contestant on competitive cooking show first ever vegetarian participant

An Indian-American contestant on the competitive cooking reality show, MasterChef US season six, is the first ever vegetarian participant on the programme.
Hetal Vasavada, 28, enjoys making desserts with traditional Indian spices such as turmeric, cumin, and coriander and garam masala, to create something uniquely Indian and American, India West, a leading magazine for the Indian diaspora, reported.
She cleared the MasterChef audition with an apple pastry cup with cardamom whipped cream.
Vasavada’s interest in cooking was piqued while studying at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, where most of the students were Indian and longed for good, home-cooked meals.
Inspired, she began cooking for the other students in her Campus.
The Indian-American contestant said she eventually would like to start her own cookie business and conduct discussions regarding different recipes and their likely for success in business ventures.
The ongoing season six started on 20May. It has a total of 22 finalists and they are being judged by three world renowned chefs, including Gordon Ramsey.
