MasterChef India 7: Judges Get Mercilessly TROLLED For Praising Aruna Vijay’s ‘Plain Looking’ Appams; Netizens Say, ‘How Is She Getting Safe Every Week’
One of India’s most loved cooking-based reality shows, MasterChef India enjoys a huge fan base all over the country. Currently in its seventh season, the show has been facing a lot of negative criticism from the audience for their biases towards home cook Aruna Vijay. Early this month, netizens had taken social media by storm after the judges had allowed the contestant to switch her protein from fish to paneer just because she is a vegetarian.

They have now come under radar for favouring Aruna’s plain looking appam over Priyanka Kundu Biswas’s cake, that she made without the help of an oven. It all happened during the latest episode, when chefs Garima Jain, Ranveer Brar and Vikas Khanna announced the ‘Ticket to Finale’ challenge task. The contestants were asked to cook healthy and innovative dishes, however with a twist. Mid-way through the task, half of the contestants were asked not to use electricity and the other half couldn’t use the stove.

Well, with the new challenges the home cooks managed to make their dishes. While the chefs heaped praises on Aruna Vijay’s dish which consisted of mini appams, stew foam, baked veggies and chammanthi thoran and for her use of ‘oil and grain’, they didn’t criticise her for the taste and her presentation. One netizen wrote, “Can somebody just explain me what's eye-catchty about this dish? Because I didn't find anything like that.... I knew her dish is getting in top 3 dishes. How is she getting safe every week I wonder....”
