Kishwar may not be the winner of the MasterChef AU, but through her culinary journey she did win millions of hearts. She romanticised our everyday food and took Bangali cuisines to cult status. Here are the most popular dishes of Kishwar Chowdhury, served in Masterchef AU season 13
Macher jhol with a twist
Giving her own twist to the simple fried Barramundi Poached in a Tomato Broth, she paired it with bean and chingri bhorta and jeera rice.
Beef patties with traditional dippings
In this post about Bengali Beef Patties with Tomato-Tamarind Chutney and Starfruit Salad, Kishwar confessed her love for Old Dhaka street food and said that it transports her back to the streets of Dhaka.
Traditional pulao and chicken korma
When the MasterChef AU judges said that they have not tasted anything as divine, you know that dish is a bomb! Kishwar's classic take on the traditional Bengali dish of Pulao and Chicken Korma is that divine dish!

Kishwar presented fuchka with a twist which, again, expressed her love towards traditional Bengali street food. Not only that, she claimed that this is one of the vegan dishes that she could live off forever!
