Gandhi, who studied at the Merrick School of Business, is the youngest winner of the MasterChef India Season 4 reality series. The Abu Dhabi native was named India’s top vegetarian chef – a title that came with a golden chef’s coat and a prize of 10 million rupees (roughly $150,000) – on April 12.
In an April 13 interview in The National, an Abu Dhabi publication, Gandhi said she was “extremely excited” by her victory in the 11-week, 67-episode drama.
“I had barely any sleep last night,” she told The National. “I kept waking up because I was still living in a dream! I was like, ‘Is this actually real?’”
Asked who inspired her as a chef, Gandhi responded, “My mum.”
