He began by gathering all of his ingredients together: naan, butter chicken, butter, mozzarella, and a slice of white bread (for size). 

Zonfrillo first placed the slice of white bread onto the naan and cut out two squares to mimic square bread.

He then generously buttered one side of both naan slices to ensure that they toasted well.

Next, the celebrity chef started chopping his butter chicken into smaller pieces that could fit into the toastie.

Zonfrillo also sliced a few chunks of mozzarella to add to his jaffle.

The MasterChef judge assembled the closed sandwich by placing a piece of naan butter-side up into the jaffle maker, adding the chunks of butter chicken and mozzarella, and topping it off with another piece of naan.

The Scottish-Australian chef and restaurateur became a host of the popular Channel 10 cooking show in 2019 alongside Andy Allen and Melissa Leong.

Zonfrillo is survived by his third wife, Lauren Fried, and his four children: Ava and Sophia, from his first two marriages, and Alfie and Isla, with Fried.

Zonfrillo, who started his career working under Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White in the UK, famously overcame an addiction to heroin during his teenage years in Glasgow before becoming one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs.

He once said he owed his life to food, telling an interviewer: ‘It saved my life. A lot of my friends from my early days are dead now or in jail.

‘The thing about being a junkie is that the only way you can get out is if there’s something in your life more compelling than drugs. And for me, I had another addiction: to food and to cooking. That’s what moved me on. That’s how I survived.’
