Flameless Cooking Challenge! Show your cooking skills.

The one skill that all of us have acquired during the lockdown is cooking. Be it trying out the dalgona coffee, cookie and pie shakes, baking something, or making our favourite dishes with our parents by seeing YouTube videos and then posting it on WhatsApp groups and social media. What if you get a chance to use these skills to win a challenge and get some exciting prizes and certificates?

Curious Times is coming up with the Flameless Cooking Challenge, where you can show your skills by baking, preparing juices, shakes, salad and fruit dressings, snacks, desserts or anything else that does not require you to turn on your stove. The challenge will start on the 16th of July and close on the 18th of July, 2021. (Do not upload anything before that date).

The challenge will be evaluated basis the below four levels:

  • Level 1 – Foundational Grade (Upto Grade 2)
  • Level 2 – Preparatory Grade (Grade 3 to 5)
  • Level 3 – Middle Grade (Grade 6 to 8)
  • Level 4 – Secondary Grade (Grade 9 and upwards)

Put your cooking hats on and get ready to participate in this exciting competition.

Special considerations

We believe in healthy participation. So, we encourage the readers and participants to generously shower “CURIOUS CLAPS” to the participants. Curious Times will give special consideration to the students, who receive CURIOUS CLAPS and appreciating remarks from other participants and non-participants too.

The jury will also look into special remarks and appreciation received by participants from other members. These include non-participating members also. So, if your teachers, schools, families or friends want to send comments, they have to log in / sign-up to give their remarks.


All participants will receive “certificates of participation”.
Some of the top entries will receive certificates of outstanding performance.
The top 5 students with the highest number of CURIOUS CLAPS will receive prizes.

    Hello curious times
    Can we submit 2 different receips in this challenge?
    Can we share only photo of receips?

    • curioustimes says:

      You can submit only one entry for the challenge.
      You can share videos or just photos, but you should write the recipe too. Else how will the readers know how to cook it, if they want to try.

  3. Sanayakhatri says:

    Okay curious times.
    Thank you so much for replying me.

  4. Richjays says:

    The criteria for judgement will be based on comments received from members or non members only or the decision will be made by judges based on recipes and presentation. Kindly reply

    • curioustimes says:

      The judges will review the recipe – content, presentation, unique ideas etc. Certificates will be issued basis that.
      But the students who receive a high number of Curious Claps from other members will also get prizes.
