Recipe Method: Place all the berries except the raspberries in a pan with the sugar and the water and cook gently for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and drain the fruit, reserving the liquid. Return the liquid to heat and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the jelly until dissolved. Allow to cool. Chill the jelly in the fridge for 5 minutes or until the jelly thickens but does not set. Remove from fridge and mix in the fruit. Cut the bread slices in half and layer in the bottom of a 450g loaf tin, overlapping the slices. Place some of the fruit over the top and level off. Top with a second layer of bread and then more fruit. Finish with a layer of bread. Push down to immerse the bread in the juice. Cover the dish with foil and set in fridge for 1 hour. To serve, remove and cut into slices.
Life always gives big opportunities in the form of small hints. The big move in Pankaj Bhadouria’s life came with a small step when she decided to leave her successful teaching career spanning over 16 years and enter India's 1st televised cookery reality show - MasterChef India on the leading GEC - Star Plus.
And as they say, fortune favours the brave, Pankaj went on to become a worthy winner and with it India's first ever MasterChef.
The comfort of the classroom gave way to the adulations, accolades and a host of achievements.
