An Indian man has filed a lawsuit against the Food Network for what he claims were "racist ingredients" issued during a taping of the hit TV Show Chopped. Contestant Deepak Sanjit said that he was "highly offended" by the "racist" ingredients given to the contestants during the entrée round which included curry and masala. Sanjit claims that he felt so "traumatised" by the fact that he was "stereotyped" that he got nervous during the round and couldn't finish preparing his dish on time and was eventually "chopped".

Sanjit's Attorney, John Anderson had this to say concerning the matter involving his client:

"I think that Mr. Sanjit has a strong case here. The producers of Chopped should know first-hand the racial backgrounds of the contestants who are appearing on the show and should be a little more sensitive. Based on Mr. Sanjit's claims I can't see him settling this case for anything less than a cool million."

Asked to comment on the issue Mr. Sanjit had said this:

"When I saw the ingredients revealed during the entrée round, I couldn't believe that they would have been so insensitive to include curry and masala. I was highly offended. To me it looked racist. They were basically saying that because of my racial background all I am able to cook is Indian Cuisine. If I were Chinese would they have provided ingredients which included dog meat and egg noodles?"

He went on:

"I was so upset that I got nervous and couldn't finish preparing my meal in the allotted time and I was eventually eliminated. Hopefully, when I win my case I'll open up my own restaurant that specializes in all kinds of cuisine so people will know that my culinary abilities are not limited despite my racial background."
