Headline: Meet Shaurya Veer Kapoor, The Young Chef Behind Gola Sizzlers
Strap: We caught up with this young Culinary Institute of America grad for a chat and got him to share a few sizzler recipes too

Shaurya Veer Kapoor grew up in a household that was always drawn to cooking and the desire to create and curate new and unique dishes, beverages, and desserts. From a young age, he surprised his family and friends with his take on fusion cuisine. He began his culinary journey by assisting his father and grandfather in the kitchen at their company, where he developed his passion for cooking and learned how to run an F&B outlet.

Kapoor created dishes with fresh new flavours for Gola Sizzlers as a Culinary Institute of America graduate. And his passion for food and fresh ideas have advanced the family business.

Here are excerpts from our chat.

What inspired you to pursue culinary arts as your career?

Being in the food industry for a long time, I have been around food since childhood. I always saw my grandfather, Mr Naresh Kapoor, a chef, in the kitchen and saw how he ensured every dish was made perfectly and even taught me how to cook. I felt connected with the food and started my professional journey by pursuing culinary arts as my career.

Has travelling influenced your cooking style? Please share an anecdote with us.

Travelling abroad guided me to play with various flavours in my cooking style. For instance, I introduced a new way of serving a simple dish like Dahi Kabab by adding interesting elements like beetroot raita, chunky onion-tomato-green chilli-cilantro salsa, sriracha chilli aioli and noodle crisps (an amalgamation of Indian, south-east Asian, and Mexican in one dish).

What is the one trend in the global culinary scenario that you wish India to embrace?

Although the beauty of our Indian cuisine is in its unique blend of so many flavours with a beautiful but complex mix of spices, somehow, the wish may get simpler one day.

Please share a few effective tips for home cooks.

Always work toward reaching your goals. Everything is achievable if you have the right intent to execute your work. Patience and practice is the key to perfection.

What is your favourite Indian food and your favourite international cuisine?

Being a Punjabi, my favourite is north Indian food. My favourite international cuisines are Indian, Italian, and Korean. Apart from Indian, other cuisines became my favourite due to my work and my travels abroad.

What is the trick behind a perfect sizzler?

The key behind the perfect sizzler is the freshness and right mix of all ingredients with the right cooking method.

Sizzlers are a Western concept. How have you modified it around the Indian palate?

Since I like playing with different flavours, I introduced an Italian prawns sizzler, Béchamel mustards prawn sizzler, Two for One Chicken Sizzler, Hong Kong Chicken Sizzler, Peri-Peri Chicken sizzler, Peri Paneer sizzler, Thai Curry sizzlers  the list is endless. I made sauces and spices and mixed blends which would be acceptable to the Indian palate, with a twist.

Why are sizzlers so popular among Indians?

We Indians like to have our food piping hot, and sizzlers do the needful, so it is quite popular among Indians.
