Inderpal Singh received SGD 10,000 (around ₹6.7 lakh) in cash and other prizes in appreciation of his culinary prowess. Inderpal Singh conveyed his tremendous emotions in a statement after his triumph, saying that pride doesn’t even begin to define how he feels right now.

Having the trophy in his hands proves that dreams do come true and gives him the confidence that he can succeed as a culinary celebrity. He continued by saying that he had dreamed of this moment so many times and had given himself a reality check so many times. Also, he expressed his gratitude for his family’s unwavering support and the relationships he made along the way to winning MasterChef, which enabled him to realise his ambitions in the culinary world.

The competition’s grand finale gave the finalists what appeared to be a simple task: to design an exquisite three-course menu for the judges, with a maximum score of 30 points for each course. The first two meals allowed the competitors to demonstrate their speciality dishes, but the dessert course had a surprise for them.

The “Queen of Desserts,” Janice Wong, a well-known Singaporean pastry chef, unexpectedly dropped by the MasterChef kitchen. The Supertree Grove, her meticulous invention, was put to a surprise pressure test on the competitors. This spectacular display, which was inspired by Singapore’s gardens, included 10 layers of chocolate, mousse, and a lava core that were put together with exact timing and technique, including dipping in liquid nitrogen.
