He swept the judges off their feet with his Indian take on tacos -- "daal bhaat" and "chicken jalfrezi", among many other delicacies. The winner of the 13th season of 'MasterChef Australia', Justin Narayan, has decoded why Indian flavours hit the right taste buds every time.

What makes Indian flavours take the spotlight on international TV shows?

"I think it's super delicious. It's tasty food and when you compare it to everything else Indian food competes really well. That's what I think," Narayan, who hails from Perth, Western Australia and is of Indian origin, told IANS on a call from Down Under.

Ever since his mega win, life has been a whirlwind for the 27-year-old young pastor, who is a first-generation Australian and a Fijian Indian.

"It has been a fun ride for sure," he said.

Right after being crowned as the winner of the popular reality show in May, Narayan married his long-time girlfriend Esther Smoothy.

So, did he woo her with his cooking talent?
