Deena Naidoo plated up in the first episode of Master Chef SA with a Butter Chicken in a Cashew and Almond Sauce with a Garlic and Herb Naan Recipe Okay I am not going to beat about the curry bush with this one. Butter Chicken is one of the finest dishes around and there is not a man among us who would disagree. When it comes to nourishing comfort food that is quick and easy to make the Butter Chicken stands head and shoulders above most other meals. Murray might contest ...

Sue Ann Allen plated up with Poached beef fillet with grilled porcini, garden vegetables and jus for the Invention Test Andrew thought it was delicate in flavour and a nice way of preparing it. Pete Goffe-Wood on the other hand found the meat tasteless and the token mushrooms did not add much to it either. Watch Sue-Ann Allen chat about the recipe ...

In the mystery box challenge Deena Naidoo prepared a mixed bag of veg. Idle hands make for silly decisions, or something like that and Deena with too much time on his hands spoils an other wise perfect dish with radish. He did not really have a plan and made it all up as he went along. His main objective was to use as many of the Mystery Box ingredients as he could. Watch Deena chat about his recipe ...
