MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 41 is called Deliveroo Pop-up Team Challenge. The top 12 contestants are divided into three teams of four members. Judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong, and Jock Zonfrillo inform the cooks that they have to make a three-course meal. This meal will get delivered to Melbourne residents via the Deliveroo app.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 judges give three hours to the contestants to make 60 dishes of each course. So overall, each team has to make 180 dishes to send out for delivery.
The three teams of MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 41 are Kishwar, Justin, Miloni and Aaron (Green team), Depinder, Pete, Maja and Tommy (Purple team) and Elise, Linda, Sabina and Scott (Orange team). Aaron, Depinder and Scott are the leaders of their respective team.
Every team decides to serve curry as their second main dish. So it is another battle of curries in the MasterChef Australia Season 13 kitchen. The Orange team decides to serve duck Maryland curry initially. However, Jock and Andy ask them what will they do with the remaining duck if they are only using the legs. Eventually, the team decides to cook duck breast to incorporate in their curry.
For their starter, Sabina plans to serve a Thai fish (snapper) cake. However, the kitchen has baby snappers which takes a lot of time to filetting. So the team drops their plan and decide to make Beef pad gra pow. The Purple team has the messiest cook in the kitchen. First, the quantity of their lamb curry isn’t enough to feed 60 people. So the team decides to add bell peppers to their dish to increase the quantity.
The side dish of the Purple team is Gobi Matar. But even the dish’s quantity seemed less. So they add more cauliflower to increase the amount. During the end of the cook, the Green team is yet to fry their Cutlis balls. But they eventually speed up and get their starters done.
Along with sending the parcels to Deliveroo delivery boys, MasterChef Australia Season 13 judges also taste the teams’ dishes. The final dishes made by the Green team are – Sri Lankan Feast Cutlis and Chutney, Beef Pepper Curry and Fragrant Rice, and Dry Potato Curry and Sambal. The Purple team makes Aloo Bonda, Lamb Chettinad and Gobi Matar. The Orange team’s dishes are Beef Pad Gra Pow, Duck Red Curry and Fragrant Rice.
The judges love all the dishes made by the Green team. The Orange team’s Beef Pad Gra Pow is dry. The Purple team’s dishes are delicious, but their Lamb Chettinad curry confuses the judges as there are lots of bell peppers. Unfortunately, the Purple team (Depinder, Pete, Maja and Tommy) will go in the Pressure Test in the next episode.
