BoBoiBoy and friends return to Tuan Guru Gaharum empty handed. However, BoBoiBoy was given another chance to prove his seriousness.
Their journey in Rimbara is nearing its end, but only one will be crowned champion. Who will inherit the knowledge of Sir Guru Gaharum from generation to generation? BoBoiBoy or Qually?
BoBoiBoy and friends are on their way back to Guru Gaharum's house with the ingredients they can afford to preserve, namely Holy Chili and Crystal Salt. Qually appears at the same time and taunts BoBoiBoy. In rage, BoBoiBoy turns into BoBoiBoy Thunderstorm and chases Qually, until they came to Gaharum's house where Gaharum and Hang Kasa await their return.
BoBoiBoy and Qually quarrel while presenting the ingredients to Gaharum. BoBoiBoy has two while Qually has all four. Gaharum decides that BoBoiBoy failed while Qually won. To cure the frustration of BoBoiBoy and friends, Hang Kasa advised Gaharum to hold a Tom Yam Sakti cooking contest between BoBoiBoy and Qually. After consideration, Gaharum agreed to the proposal and gave three days to prepare.
Qually was not satisfied with Gaharum's change of heart and asked if he could use all the ingredients collected, then Gaharum agreed. BoBoiBoy and friends discuss ways to make up for the lack of available materials.
When the day came, a cooking competition between BoBoiBoy and Qually which was attended by the entire Cendawa tribe and BoBoiBoy's own gang, was hosted by Hang Kasa with Tok Cendatok, Guru Gaharum, and himself as the jury. Participants are given 60 minutes to prepare a dish that resembles Tom Yam Sakti, and the best dish will be announced as the winner. Ridiculed by the arrogant-looking Qually, BoBoiBoy recalled three days of trying to learn tom yam cuisine under Tok Aba's tutelage, then responded with confidence, while Gaharum put a timer clock to start the match.
Qually starts by slicing a large onion, while BoBoiBoy performs Penta Split, with their respective chef’s outfits, then distributes the tasks among themselves. Quake became the head of cooking assisted by Blaze and Ice to take care of the kitchen, |Thorn was tasked with preparing the water, while Thunderstorm cut the ingredients. While doing the task, Thunderstorm noticed on Qually's table there was a different Holy Chili than the one he had picked up.
Suddenly, a group of birds from Muriong Village led by Jaguh Lang stormed into the event area and confronted BoBoiBoy to reclaim the stolen Golden Chili. Thunderstorm pointed towards Qually, but Jaguh Lang didn't care until the smell of cooked tom yam pierced the birds' noses, calming their anger and attracting their interest to try the tom yam cooked by both parties.
After the fight subsided, Hang Kasa announced that only 30 minutes remained, causing the atmosphere to become anxious on BoBoiBoy's part. At the behest of the Quake, Thunderstorm slices the chillies and onions and catched by Thorn with a bowl. Qually put the Blue Apiru flowers into his pan as a step to top the match, but the BoBoiBoy group responded with Kantan Flowers. Gopal reminds them to add salt, and Ice almost puts a piece of Crystal Salt before being seized by Quake who crushes the lump into a powder to be sprinkled into the pan.
Qually cover the pan and set the fire vigorously, making steam come out of the crevice of the pan. Gopal was impressed to see Qually's performance, but was reprimanded by Ying for supporting BoBoiBoy. Quake tasted of the cuisine and felt too spicy. Blaze told them to forget to add coconut milk, and Thorn brought it. After the taste again, Blaze felt the fire was not strong enough and did a Fire Spray on the pan, but it was so strong that the pan even burned and Ice acted to put out the fire. Seeing the demeanor on the other side, Qually commented on BoBoiBoy's work like an amateur.
Thunderstorm brought a bucket of water, but Quake told him to wait while Ice tried to calm the situation by doing Freezing the pan. Apparently, it not only put out the fire but ruined the cuisine, making BoBoiBoy's group frustrated while Qually continued to taunt them. Yaya contacts Ochobot on Earth to teleport Tok Aba to the venue to give BoBoiBoy an injection of enthusiasm and cooking tips. With 15 minutes left, the five BoBoiBoys got back in high spirits and discussed further strategies.
While Qually began serving the dishes, Blaze used a medium fire spray to melt and boil the tom yam. Then, Quake told Ice and Blaze to perform Elemental Fusion and join BoBoiBoy FrostFire. FrostFire performs a Frozen Heat Explosion on the pan to prepare the dishes, at the same time making Qually feel sued. In the last minute, FrostFire had time to serve the dishes.
The cooking session was already over, and it was time to present the cuisine for the jurors to guess. Qually presents Tom Yam Sakti with four original ingredients requested. The three jurors gave praise, but Gaharum in silence felt a little lacking. It was BoBoiBoy's turn to perform Tom Yam Sakti. After trying, Gaharum asked BoBoiBoy from where he learned to cook, to which he replied of course Tok Aba. Gaharum commented it tastes unique but a little more spicy.
Finally, the jury reached a decision and announced the result of the contest was a draw, certifying both dishes had specialties but had not yet reached the level of taste, so he combined the two tom yams to perfect his desired tom yam. BoBoiBoy and Qually are stunned and wonder if they failed, but are denied by Gaharum who fulfills the wishes of both of them. Qually gets a book to inherit Gaharum’s recipes while BoBoiBoy is gifted an Oquat seed to gain Balak’s power.
BoBoiBoy and Qually congratulate each other, and Qually apologizes for his past actions to put aside the quarrel between them before and also let his obsession consume it. Yaya invites Qually to join TAPOPS, but Gopal is still furious and thinks he is cheating because he still has a grudge against Qually. Qually offered to be their cook, so Gopal forgave him. The issue ended with BoBoiBoy serving tom yam to the entire contest audience.
