MasterChef Australia star Sandeep Pandit, the 37-year-old from Victoria is being slammed on social media for ‘only cooking one dish’.
The Australian reality-TV participant - who has wowed judges Matt Preston, George Calombaris, Gary Mehigan with his culinary skills - has been told he is cooking 'too many Indian curries' on the show.
The criticism follows the shock and controversial elimination of Tim Bone.

One viewer wrote about the Masterchef contestant on Twitter: 'I know this is going to sound mean spirited but I want Sandeep to lose otherwise we are only encouraging his behaviour of only ever cooking one dish.'
Another added: 'How can you be a ''MasterChef'' if you just know one type of cuisine? Shouldn't it be diverse?'
'I'm waiting to see Sandeep cook something other than Indian cuisine. Getting by too easily with these challenges just cooking Indian,' said another Sydney based fan.
However, there were some to trump the comment - with viewers defending Sandeep and special cooking ability.
'For everyone complaining that @sandeep_cooks cooks too many curries, It's an IMMUNITY PIN!!! You go with what you know best!!!!! It's your only chance!!!' said one fan.
Meanwhile, another added: 'People complaining about #masterchefAU that Sandeep is making "too many curries" - um, there is no such thing as curry. It's something white people call Indian food. Everything that you call curry are completely distinct entities.'
