She lives with her husband Gurkirat who’s her biggest support system. They are currently residing in Sydney. Even after staying abroad for all these years, her love for Indian cuisine stays the same and that clearly reflects in her MasterChef journey.
03/6Passion for cooking
Depinder likes to explore different recipes. Cooking as a passion came to her naturally when from a very young age, she saw her aunt, grandmother, and mother cooking delicious Indian foods. She then eventually discovered and polished her love for cooking through travelling in different parts of the world.
04/6A pharmacist by profession
Yes, that’s true. Depinder just like her father is a pharmacist by profession. She’s even pursuing a master’s degree in the same field. So, apart from being a wonderful chef and cooking amazing dishes, she’s multi-talented as well.
Depinder idolizes Gordon Ramsay, the very famous Indian chef, and MasterChef India Judge Kunal Kapur, Kirsten Tibballs, Gaggan Anand, and Donna Hay.

Depinder started her MasterChef journey by making desi Indian dishes like Pindi Chhole, Chicken Biryani, Tandoori Chicken and an Indian Tiffin Bento Box which had dishes like Chickpea curry and Kadhai Paneer. She received a lot of praises for these dishes.
Moreover, she went on to make something unconventional and mind-blowing as Green Curry cake with White Chocolate Chilli Ganache, Coconut crumb and Coconut Ice Cream. Can you imagine that? It’s something huge and innovative. She didn’t stop there rather went on to make Ghevar with Carrot Sorbet and Fried Chicken with Mango Chilli Glaze. The judges have been all praises for her.
