What is your favourite dish to cook? I love cooking chicken curry and I love cooking salami pasta.

What's your worst cooking disaster? Once when I was 15 I cooked a lovely savoury mint stew and I put baking powder in it, but my stepdad ate it and said it was lovely.

What's your favourite meal of the day? Dinner, because I get to sit down with my family.

The first thing I cooked was.... Baked beans, when I was about six.

How do you flavour your food? I always flavour it to taste. I use a lot of garlics and gingers.

My guilty pleasure is.... Rice, basmati. I eat it every day.

Masterchef or My Kitchen Rules? I'm more Masterchef and the more I can involve the better.

How do you lunch? Just a cup of tea. Basmati rice and yogurt for breakfast. I'd do the same if I was having lunch.
