New Delhi: 30-year old, a single mother from Shimla, Shipra Khanna after becoming India’s second MasterChef has decided to open her own restaurant and soothe the taste buds of people with her Himachali cuisine.
Shipra on Sunday night walked away with the title of 'MasterChef' in the second season of the cooking reality show. She won a cash prize of Rs.1 crore, a chance to host her own show on Star Plus and a vacation for three nights and four days in London.
Shipra beat Joseph Rozario from Siliguri and Salma Shazia Fathima from Bengaluru to win the show that started off with 12 contestants.
The judges' panel for the second season of the reality show included chef Kunal Kapoor and chef Ajay Chopra from the previous season, while Michlen star chef Vikas Khanna stepped into the shoes of Akshay Kumar as the third judge.
Also Shipra reportedly has decided to donate a part of money for special children studying at a school near her hometown Shimla.
Shipra, who was married in Agra, is living separately from her husband. Her children, Yadavi and Himang, stay with their father.
After her marriage broke down, Shipra was clueless about her life. But with her parents’ support she tried to move on.
"My children love to dine out. Several times I tried to replicate recipes, especially the desserts, at home. This greatly helped me in honing my skills," she added.
The phase of life you suffered can not be repaired but we wish that from now everything goes on a happy note in your life.
