Before beginning the grand finale, the host asks the three finalists to select 3 mysterious ingredients from the 16 plates kept in front of them. Lily goes 1st and gets lucky to find ingredients under all three plates. Sandy goes after her and gets lucky with two plates. On his chance, Shubham finds 1st plate to be empty and finds rather unusual ingredients under the remaining two plates.
Now, in today’s Phulala Sugandha Maaticha episode, surprising the finalists, the host bestows two more chances upon them to select ingredients. Lily finds ingredients in one chance and gets unlucky with the second. Sandy finds ingredients in both his chances. Shubham steps forward and picks up his ingredients. On his first chance, he gets fruits like Kiwi, Dragon fruit, and Pomegranate. Being unfamiliar with these fruits, Shubham keeps wondering about them and loses his second chance, as time gets up.
Lily and Sandy start with the preparation of their dish, as the host begins the last round of the competition. Shubham stands still thinking about the unusual ingredients that he’s got. Meanwhile, his family worries about him for being still and doing nothing. While thinking about what can he make out of these ingredients, Shubham remembers his own saying that there’s not a single ingredient in the world that can’t be used to prepare something. And in his worst time, Kirti’s words become the hope that he needs. And Shubham starts tasting every ingredient that he has got. Seeing him finally start doing something, the Jamkhedkar see a light of hope.
In Maharashtra, Shubham’s family worries about him. But as soon as he starts doing something everyone starts supporting him and wondering what he’s doing. Back at the competition, after tasting each ingredient, Shubham prepares a mixture of cheese, fruits, and jaggery. After doing that he takes the wheat flour and prepares dough. Making small discs out of it, he adds the fruit mixture into it, making it into a modak. Seeing him preparing modak out of the unusual ingredients that he’s got, everyone gets shocked. While preparing her dish, Lily watches Shubham pick up pace and wonders what he’s doing. Upon finding that his dish is looking better with each moment, Lily gets jealous of him.
