Due to the change in the series' broadcasting from an hourly weekend show to a half-hour weekday show, challenges were set weekly.
This was the audition week. The three judges visited twenty cities across India, auditioning thousands of contenders, who were asked to prepare a dish to impress the judges and book a place in the Top 31.
In this week, the season's Top 31 contestants were revealed. The first challenge was to invent a dish by using Nagpur Oranges and Brussel Sprouts. Khokhu's dish was excellent. Khokhu Patra, Sachin Naik, Ishrat Ali, Nisha Verma and Ripu Daman Handa prepared the 5 best dishes and thus became the first 5 to reach the Top 12. The six worst dishes were eliminated.
The remaining 20 contestants went through their second challenge, in which the all judges showed three traditional Indian dishes extremely difficult to make. As the first task, the contestants replicate Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's Gujarat ki Khandvi. 5 contestants are eliminated after the first task. As the second task, the remaining 15 contestants replicate Chef Kunal Kapur's Andhra Pradesh ki Pootharekulu. The contestants find it very difficult to make. 5 more contestants are eliminated after the second task. As the third task, the contestants replicate Chef Vikas Khanna's Aloo ki Tokri. Doyel, Navneet, Happy, Aditi and Devyani make perfect Aloo ki Tokris, and advance to the Top 12.
The last contest this week was a taste challenge. Sanjeev Kapoor had prepared some kulfi which had 40 ingredients. The last five contestants had to identify the ingredients one by one by tasting and looking, and an incorrect ingredient meant elimination. Yasmin Sheikh won the challenge and thus became the 11th member of the Top 12.
Week 3 was a non-elimination week. This week, the Top 12 competed for the MasterChef badge, which will enable the winner to escape elimination once in any week, leading up to the Top 5. On top of that, the winner would also be awarded Rs.1,00,000.
The challenge this week was to create a dish out of ingredients that are normally discarded and not used. The contestants were asked to use at least three ingredients from: the peel of jackfruit, peel of beetroot, leaves of cauliflower, leaves of tamarind, seeds of papaya, and spoilt milk, to create their dish.
After judging all the dishes, 6 contestants were selected for the next round. 2 teams, Neela Nawab and Lal Badshah, headed by Koku Patra and Doyel respectively were formed and were asked to prepare a full meal.The Neela Nawab consisted of Khokhu Patra, Yasmin Sheikh and Ishrat Ali. The Lal Badshah team consisted of Doyel Sarangi, Happy Singh and Ripu Daman Handa. Neele Nawab team was declared the winner of this round. The last round for the badge would be between Khokhu Patra, Yasmin Sheikh and Ishrat Ali. They had to make a dessert without the use of any type of sweets like, sugar, honey, or jaggery. The Masterchef Supershakti was won by Yasmin Sheikh and she also won the cash prize of Rs.1,00,000.
This week, the contestants were asked to prepare a dish by using ingredients that give the judges most trouble when cooking. There were given bamboo(as a cooking aide) , gond (edible gum resin) and timur (Szechwan Pepper).All contestants were having problems with the bamboo as it got overheated often. From that competition, Happy was declared the winner and Doyel, Devyani and Nisha were saved.
The remaining contestants participated in a 20-20 challenge with a partner. The girls cooked for 20 minutes & the guys were not allowed to see. Then the guys took over & girls could not see. For the final 20 minutes they cooked together. The key ingredient was Unripened mangoes. Yasmin and Jehaan cooked the best dish and were safe. Ripu and Khokhu were also safe.
The final elimination competition of this week was to make Barphile Shole (Icy fire) with liquid nitrogen. Sachin made the best dish, and was safe. Aditi and Navneet were also safe. Ishrat was eliminated due to a mishap, which left the chocolate off of her dish.
This week's first challenge was to make an Indian-style Pizza. The contestants were asked to make a Indian Pizza with the theme of the Pizza belonging to an Indian state to which they don't belong to, using a flat pan(tawa), instead of the traditional oven. Ripu was declared as the winner of this week's first challenge for his Maharashtrian style Pizza called "Kurkurit Pizza Chatakha". Besides Ripu, Nisha and Doyel were chosen to be the other two contestants to enter the safe zone for the week based on their respective dishes.
For the second challenge of the week, 8 contestants were teamed to form 2 groups with 4 members each. The first team named 'Lal Badshah' headed by Happy with other members in his team being Yasmin, Aditi and Sachin; while the second team was named 'Neele Nawab' headed by Navneet with other members being Khokhu, Jehaan and Devyani. The two teams compete in a 3 hour pursuit to make a tier-cake with at-least 4 tiers. Both teams came across some ups and downs while making the cake. Lal Badshah's 6-tier cake contained a different flavor for each tier however they thought that Elaichi (cardamom) and cinnamon used in the cake gave it the 'desi-flavor' and the judges did not agree with the logic while on the other hand Neele Nawab's 5-tier cake had the same flavor on all 5 tiers, but the flavor they chose was 'Masala-chai with Orange' which was perfectly desi. Moreover Neele Nawab's cake had a wonderful presentation with high level of decoration while Lal Badshah's cake was comparatively less presentable. Lal Badshah's cake was chosen as the best cake for the evening for having a different flavor in each tier. So now Navneet, Devyani, Khokhu and Jehaan compete in the final individual challenge for the week before any one contestant among the 4 is eliminated.
When Navneet, Devyani, Khokhu, and Jehaan went to the elimination challenge, they all had to make a dish chosen by chef Vikas. He wanted them to make a strudel but he called it 'Hara Bhara Lifafa' Jehan's family was there to keep him company. When it came to results, the judges believe that Khokhu's dish was faultless and said she was safe straight away. After this, there was Devyani, Navneet and Jehaan. Devyani was made safe and the judges said she should open her own shop. When it came down to Navneet and Jehaan, the judges said that the only reason that Navneet couldn't go home is because of Jehaan. This led to Jehaan being eliminated.
At the end of week 5 the judges gave everyone tickets to go to Amritsar Punjab. When everyone reached there the judges threw 5 different coloured aprons and teams were formed- Ripu and Nisha, Navneet and Yasmin, Happy and Khokhu, Devyani and Aditi and finally Sachin and Doyel .The judges gave them their first challenge which they were given 2 hours, the chefs had to get to a nearby village and find there colored house when they got there then had to perform a task which the owner of the house gave only then they could go inside the kitchen get the ingredients and drive back once they came back in the remaining time they had to cook the dishes.yasmin and Navneet came first and they had 80mins then came Doyel and Sachin with 70 mins in 3rd place came ripu,nisha and happy and Khokhu and they got 65 mins and finally came Devyani and Aditi they got 60 mins. Ripu and Nisha were declared safe and the others will continue their journey in Punjab to stay safe. The remaining contestants were formed into teams. Lal Badshah- Navneet (captain), Khokhu, Aditi, Sachin Neele Nawab- Yasmin (captain), Happy, Doyel, Devyani
Their challenge was to create a South Indian style menu and price their dishes. They each had their own Dhabba to cook in. Lal Badshah priced all of their dishes between 10-30.rs. Kunal came and told them to reprice their dishes immediately as is was too cheap. He comments on Aditi's Avial and says its the best one he's had and displayed his happiness with a warm kiss on her hand. The teams for the rush of the customers. No one comes to Neele Nawab's dhabba and everyone goes to Lal Badshah's. Until half an hour before the closing of the event, Lal Badshah team had very few customers while Neele Nawab team was running almost full from the go. Lal Badshah billed customers more than actual amount to get more money. In ending minutes, they asked customers to put lots of tips in their money-box so that they can win. To everyone's surprise when the results were declared Neele Nawab aggregated 5905 Rupees while Lal Badshah aggregated 5863 Rupees. In the end Chef Kunal tried to justify the victory by saying that Lal Badshah lost because they under priced their dishes. So, Lal Badshah team members go into the elimination round for this week.
The 4 unsafe contestants, Navneet, Khokhu, Aditi and Sachin are asked to recreate the crisp Amritsar Kulcha with a new side dish instead of the regular chole. Navneet prepares palak and paneer roulade, Sachin prepares chicken dal, Khokhu prepares paneer tikka and Aditi prepares chicken kheema. Sachin is eliminated from the show as his dal remains uncooked.
The judges ask contestants who is the weakest contestant in their opinion. Most nominated Ripu because of his lack of experience as all other contestants were either in catering/cooking business or were house-wives. This week was declared as double elimination week by the judges. The first event for the week had two stages. First, identify ingredients in a dish by tasting it. Second, each contestant will prepare a dish using only the ingredients identified correctly by them. The provided dish was 'Bhavnagri Mirch ki Achaar'. Navneet's roti falls apart due to the lack of a binding agent as he could not guess Besan. Nisha's dish lacks colours. Devyani's Mirchi Twist remains half cooked. Khokhu had not guessed any sour element correctly. Due to this, she fails to impress the judges with her dish, regardless of its impressive presentation because of no balance between sweetness and sourness. Ripu proves the other contestants wrong by impressing the judges the most with his dish. But, as this was an elimination round, he was not declared safe for the week. The judges declared that Khokhu was eliminated right away after the first event of the week, thus being the 1st candidate to get eliminated this week.
In the second event of the week, two teams were formed with four members each, the team was formed on the basis of the weight of the candidates, the 'heavy-weights' were Happy(captain), Devyani, Nisha and Ripu and was named the Neele Nawaab, while the other four contestants namely Navneet(captain), Doyel, Aditi and Yasmin were named Lal Badshah team. Both teams were given only 500 grams of ingredients for preparing a dish called 'Navratan Thali' with a condition that, the team that first finishes collection of their 500 grams of ingredients from Amul Parlor would get a surprise benefit- which was later disclosed to an additional 50 grams of ingredients. The advantage of additional 50 grams was won by Neele Nawab team, it was a 60 minute challenge. Lal Badshah made an awesome combination of 13 items where they were only supposed to make nine, while Neele Nawaab made 9 items even while having an added advantage of 50 grams. Lal Badshah team was the declared winner of the week and Navneet, Doyel, Aditi and Yasmin were safe for the week.

Chef Ajay Chopra challenges the 2 unsafe contestants, Doyel and Devyani to prepare a 13 layered Falooda weighing 45 kilograms. Doyel and Devyani follow the given recipe and struggle to replicate the Gadbad Falooda. While Devyani cooks in an organized but little slow manner, Doyel breaks down in between the overwhelming task. Devyani struggles to prepare the main layer of falooda as it requires a lot of strength to stir the contents over the stove. Both finish the dish in time. Devyani's Falooda taste is good except the main layer, while the presentation is excellent. However, Doyel's Falooda tasted excellent, while the presentation is very bad. Because of Devyani's main layer she got eliminated.

After half-time, the gurus are suddenly asked to leave and contestants are asked to finish their dishes themselves. The contestants struggle to complete the task single-handedly due to time constraint. Navneet lags behind as he had assigned half the task to his mother. Ripu's dish was appreciated by the judges while Navneet's Middle Eastern dish with six components was declared to be the best dish right away. Navneet wins the Flavour-e-Azam badge and joins Nisha to be the second candidate to be safe this week while Ripu becomes the third candidate to get safe this week.
In the final and individual elimination round of the week, Chef Sanjeev sets a challenge of making his family's tradition dish 'Zamindoz Murg' which is served with salad, Fruit Sauce and a specific mixture of Dried Mango Powder and Salt. Contestants had to accomplish the task without a pre provided recipe. The contestants are given a chance to ask one recipe-related question to Chef Sanjeev. Aditi's dish gets over-cooked because of inadequate protective shield. Judges had mixed opinion over Yasmin's dish, while Doyel's dish is declared to be perfect. This leads to Aditi being eliminated.

Chef Kunal Kapur demonstrates the method of preparation. The contestants are asked to cook alongside him as no written recipe is provided, but fail to match his speed. Just as chef Kunal completes his dish the contestants get 15 more minutes to complete their dish. The contestants find it difficult to demould the 5 layered dessert as the gelatin on the top layer sticks to the tin. Devyani wins the challenge, while Jehan, Khokhu, Happy and Aditi are eliminated from the show. Devyani is given a chance to win a place in the top 6 by facing off with one of the already established top 6 kitchen stars. She chose Yasmin as her opponent. Yasmin was quite upset with this.
