It’s a story about a working mother who single-handedly changed the face of vegetarian cooking in India and paved way for many such home cooks and start-ups to aspire and achieve their dreams.”

Huma said, “Tarla Dalal reminds me of my childhood. My mom had a copy of her book in the kitchen and would often try many of her recipes for my school tiffin. I also clearly remember the time when I helped mom make Tarla‘s homemade mango ice cream. This role has taken me back to those sweet childhood memories and I am very thankful to Ronnie, Ashwini, and Nitesh for having faith in me to play this awe-inspiring character.”
Ronnie Screwvala says, “Tarla Dalal transformed home cooking in India. Her story is a textbook example on entrepreneurship – how it is never too late to work towards your ambitions. Very excited and looking forward to collaborate again with Ashwiny and Nitesh”.
