My mom an excellent cook herself, bought "The Pleasures of Vegetarian Cooking" and my culinary journey began at the age of 14. Mom started collecting TD's books. After my wedding I was challenged by my husband's friend to cook a meal for them and I confidently cooked using the TD books - some gifted some bought. Have been collecting and cooking using her books and am confident to try recipes for the first time when inviting guest and be sure that they will come out great. Now as my children have started cooking they too have started cooking using TD. Thanks for writing and creating such plethora of recipes for us to enjoy.

I was a fan on Tarla aunty on TV since then and when our cable wala used to show her shows of delicious recipes. I had a crush for kitchen and did my diploma in hotel management because of two people, one -man Sajeev Kapoor and another -lady Tarla Dalal. Indeed its late to write for a message after around one and half years of her demise but still I felt that there has been a emptiness in my kitchen till date. I miss you Tarla aunty.RIP.

- Shaji on 14 May 15

Thanks for all the lovely recipes, we miss you

- Sumita Banerjee on 01 Apr 15

I had heared so much about you and one day I got the news that you left us.I left emptiness though I hadnt seen you ever not tired your receipes ever for I was sure we have missed a unique person that was you!

- Reshma on 02 Mar 15

remember you miss you adore you

- pratima on 09 Feb 15

You were such an inspiring person.As of today too your recipes seem to have your presence.You have inspired and will continue to do so.Thank you.

- Jivaji rao on 15 Dec 14

I am huge fan of Tarla Dalal. I learnt a lot of recipe from tarla dalal and got alot of appreciations from the family members. Thank for all your recipe Tarla. RIP

- Mamta Gupta on 11 Nov 14

my cooking was just boring and usual and typical cooking. I bought a couple of recipe books of Tarla Dalal, sighned up for recipes online in her website and now my family looks upon me for new recipes every weekend. She made my cooking so special that all my guests never say no whenever I invite them home. Thank you for making my life special

- Sujatha Ganesh on 10 Nov 14

When I was french teacher in New Delhi, my students presented me the Tarla Dalal's New indian vegetarian cookery... it was almost 30 years ago, I am now back to France and stilland always using Tarla Dalal recipes. She is a source of inspiration to me, the angels are lucky to share her smile forever. Thank you Madam.

- Dominique Jeantet on 09 Nov 14

She made cooking seem such fun to young and old. Her style of teaching was so charming and above all, her smile added that extra flavour to every dish. God bless her soul and may she continue to smile wherever she is.

- Usha on 08 Nov 14

It is easy to not miss her, because she was about food and most people cook for fun. And in a world of plenty, it would seem there are other blogs and other sites. But truth is, the food she designed for us through her recipes were filled with her quiet love and it is that love that expresses when we take the first lick of our cooking and say, wow! Her brand of people ended with her. That unconditional sharing, that uninhibited style of talking and presenting a show, that 'This is Tarla Dalal speaking...!' is gone forever. She embodied the love of cooking and the fantastic-ness of deliciousness. Her designing of recipes can never be achieved by anyone, simply because her recipes are only about giving love. When you cooked her recipes and fed your family, they always, always looked up and said, 'Mom this is so fabulous' and you got your hugs abundantly. Nobody can replicate that feeling ever again, never again. Tarla-ben was the last of the home grown cooks. The ones who cooked out of love. Then the Lord broke the mould....! Cooking has not felt the same without you Tarlaben!

- meera seth on 08 Nov 14

You were such an inspiring person.As of today too your recipes seem to have your presence.You have inspired and will continue to do so.Thank you.

- hetal m dalal on 07 Nov 14

Mam you made me become better each day in my culinary skills. Whenever I want to test any new recipe I always go back to you. The first thing that comes to my mind is let me see Tarla Mams site first. You will be an inspiration for generations to come.

- Priti Maheshwari on 07 Nov 14

Simplicity in every recipe that you read...making it simple even before you start, especially for someone like me who does'nt particularly like cooking, she made is look so easy. And in her videos, she keeps telling you how easy and simple it is to be a wonderful cook. I don't think she is not around, she is right here everyday with everyone who needs her for every single recipe of hers...Not a day goes by without seeing your ever smiling face...

- Jalpa on 07 Nov 14

Tarla aunty epitomises the words"Living on through your work". To me logging on to her website, reading her recipes that I've saved up and watching her videos on You Tube is like ringing the friendly neighbour's doorbell for help and tips. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say, I've never felt she isn't in our midst. I must admit though, as family and team members you must definitely miss her a great deal. But then you too must have a lot of fond memories to see you through and obviously you all are busy carrying her legacy forward. Wish you luck in all your endeavours. Thinking of how much influence she's had on us vis-a vis food - There's a jar of Green peppercorns in brine at home for the second year now since I learnt it on her site. Strawberry icecream's been repeated at least thrice during the season. Fada-ni- khichdi is a saviour when I'm hard up on time. Frozen corn finds its way into the lunchbox as Makai-ki- sabzi when I run out of vegetables. These are just a few of the ones that we regularly have. What I've really loved about her style is the way she pooh-poohed people's claims of how difficult a certain food preparation was- as if she had particular fun in leaking out some elitist information. I also remember reading multiple recipes on the same food . She never stopped experimenting and always wanted to share her findings on the best way she'd found. I'm way too inexperienced to comment on her -but to me she was one of a kind.

- Rashmi on 06 Nov 14

our deepest condolences to her loved family and friends. We enjoyed her recipes. May her soul rest in peace.

Tarla dalal the name i heard first in cooking in my teenage from that time i was big fan of her and today i cook very good form her given recipes. she is nery good mentor.. my indebt regards to madam.

- Mamta Shah on 06 Nov 14

It was a mesmerizing experience to see Tarlaben at NCPA theatre during a drama show. No one can match with her cooking style, tips and recipes. As a teenager, whenever i cooked something new in my kitchen, dad used to fondly call me 'tarla dalal!' As of today, my expertise in culinary, i wish to fully credit it to Tarlaben. Her simple personality and ever simple recipes will always rock in our lives! Love you Tarlaben...

- Jyoti G Gala on 06 Nov 14

Right from Pleasures of Vegetarian Cooking following Tarla Dalal’s recipes has been a pleasure, pleasure all the way for millions of her fans like me. Her treasure trove of delightful recipes will be tried and enjoyed by generations to come. Feel very proud and happy that I had the opportunity to work with her.

- Jharna Patel on 06 Nov 14

- Sushmita on 06 Nov 14

Really a very great lady, we all miss her very much after her sudden passing away. May her soul rest in peace always.

- Ravi on 05 Nov 14

Cooking with class and ease was what Mrs. Dalal taught me. I was a complete foreigner in the U S and even more in the kitchen she was there to walk you through the dish with complete ease . I still think she is omnipresent, almost telling me you can do this! Best gift to someone who enjoys the art of cooking! A gift that keeps giving. Thank you Mrs Dalal.

- Niyati on 05 Nov 14

I love the simple to do yet tasty recipes of Tarla Dalal and hers is my first reference point for any new recipe. Let her memories and receipes live forever

- revathi on 05 Nov 14

Salutations to Tarlaji who would continue to live in our hearts for the lovely recipes. The recipes are not only simple but can be prepared at ease using almost all the ingredients available in house. I for one am greatly indebted to Tarlaji for being our best coach a mentor for enhancing our culinary skills and of course showing us the path to stay in our hearts through the Indian Delicacies. Miss you maam..

- Haresh Thakur on 05 Nov 14

I still not believe that she is not between us..she is here..in the form of cooking... She has inspired me a lot to prepare different receipes with easy ingedients,moreover from her receipes,everytime I get appreciation from my family..they always say me " a chhoti Tarla". Love u mam,whereever u r... RIP

- DIPTI PATEL on 05 Nov 14

I believe she is o e of the pioneers in making Indian cookery so easy and famous among people. with simplicity and her fervour for cooking she has earned such great honours to her name and the country. Today, i feel i get inspiration from her life to take a plunge in the same path. Hereafter, I begin my journey.......

- Mariyam Debdas on 05 Nov 14

- pooja advani on 05 Nov 14

She will be missed and not only by her immediate family but global, extended family. Whenever I am in doubt about something, I will first check her recipe.

- desaimom on 05 Nov 14

I first became aware of Tarla when I purchased a very early UK edition of Indian Vegetarian Cookery - vegetarianism was then (mid-1970s) very much a fringe thing in the UK - the leading UK Vegetarian restaurant was called 'Cranks', which says it all! How far we have come. Thank you, Tarla, for a lifetime of joyful food.

- Dr Martin Williams on 05 Nov 14

It was an honour to meet her in one Trade fair In Delhi many years back. I told that this reciepe was of Tarla Dalal at a stall and she told that she was the same.So simple,down to earth.I was surprised. My salute

- Rekha Agarwal on 04 Nov 14

I always loved her recipes she was inspiration to me for cooking.with her recipes whenever I had maid dishes It is appreciated by my family and guest.she has inspired me to make good cooking and make my family happy .Tarlaben we can never forget you.you still live in our heart.

- Meenaxi Parikh on 04 Nov 14

Why only women, she was a mentor of many a discerning man faced with the daunting task of rustling-up a meal! In-Memoriam of the one and only Ms Tarla Dalal !!

- Raj on 04 Nov 14

I never knew till date that Ms Tarla Dalal is no more with us.Because I used to see her videos only and the way speaks in the videos is enough to influence positively the behavior.With deep respect from heart and I pray for her.

- N Padmavati on 04 Nov 14

I owe a big thank you to Tarlaben for teaching me lots of tasty dishes.I was a newly married girl 30 years ago when I learnt lots of "inside secrets"of cooking a perfect meal. I have her books and have also gifted them to family. Even today, when people praise my cooking, I think of her. She is alive in my cooking, and conversations on dining table.

- Niti Shah on 04 Nov 14

Love her recipes - This is where I learned how to cook. RIP

- Smita on 04 Nov 14

I owe my survival in the kitchen while in USA and now in INDIA completely to her. I own most of her books, it's like my encyclopaedia for kitchen!! Thank you so much for making our lives 'tastier' . May God Bless You wherever you are!!

- Kekul on 04 Nov 14

I Love you Mam. I think today also you are living with me through your recipe books. Thank you so much for your contribution.

- Aarti Shah on 04 Nov 14

Tarla Dalal has been a part of my life from the time I was born . It inspired my mother to try out different dishes and add that zing to everyday cooking. In class 10th for the Home Science Practicals I managed to impress the examiners and my peers with not only interestingly prepared delicacies but also well presented dishes . Thanks to Tarla Dalal. The best and the most handy thing in my wedding trouseau was indeed Vegetarian Cooking By tarla dalal. And 15 years into my marriage i just need to refer to it to prepare sure shot lip smacking cuisines. In fact even my children enjoy using the vegetarian cooking for children by tarla dalal. She has been a boon for vegetarians and inspires us to try out the vegetarian version for so many international cuisines. to watch the recorded rendering of the recipes on tata sky too. Thanks Tarla Dalalji for adding so much flavor to our lives.

- Sakshi Bansal on 04 Nov 14

We proudly remember Tarla Dalaji being one of of the India's greatest promoter of Vegetarianism. Her dishes are very delicious and vey simple to prepare. I am very proud of of the Tarla Dalal ji's team which is continuing her legacy. Congratulations team Tarla Dalal for your exemplary work. This is the one of the best site which i follow regularly.

- Sriniwas Malladi on 04 Nov 14

I have always been inpired by Tarla Dalal. I started taking interest in cooking after retirement. We have introduced many recipies from her website. Like Masala Khitchdi, Spicy potatoes, Baked Samosa, Rajma Chawal & many more dishes. We have no. of books written by her. Also my Daughter is using same after her marriage. We remember her on first Death Anniversery. You are doing great job by keeping & updating her website alive. With deep respect from heart! Vinod Saraiya & Family.

- Vinod Saraiya on 04 Nov 14

Tarla Dalal has always been and will always be my favourite website to try new recipes. Its all due to amazing work done by Tarlaji over the years. I still cant believe that she is not with us.. as she is always living thru her recipes. Her penchant in promoting Vegetarianism and having unbelievable number of vegetarian recipes is totally unmatchable. There can never be another Tarla Dalal.

- Suv on 04 Nov 14

Tarla ji has touched so many lives. I love to see her videos and the smile with which she explains her recipe doesn't make me feel i am watching some chef's videos. Its more as if some of my own aunty's explaining the recipes.Love you Tarla ji for all those mouth-watering recipes and useful tips. Hats off to your talent and passion for reaching out to masses with it. Thank you for all that you have given to this world... May your soul rest in peace.... May God give your family and friends strength. Mr. Sanjay thanks for putting all this together. May her glory be alive forever!

I am very sad & shocked about Mrs Tarla Dalal's passing. She was so humble despite her many talents. She was an iconic figure & the textbook for great cooking. This is the best cooking site I have seen. When people talk about cooking, the name that immediately comes to mind is Mrs Tarla Dalal. Thank you, Radha

- Rose Marie Fernandes on 02 Feb 14

I first picked up a book by Tarla Dalal when I was expecting my 1st baby. delicious, practical, healthy veg recipes that through the years have been strengthening my family and kids. I have a neat collection of her books now and refer to them regularly. She helped me put veggies on the menu in my predominantly nonveg household! Rest in peace.

- sharon d'souza-pretto on 27 Jan 14

She's my idol. I took admission in home science college after getting inspired by her. I learnt so much from her. Even today I browse the website at 11 pm at night to decide what I have to give in tiffin the next day. He loves the variety and creativitt. I'm so grateful to be part of her. Regards

- Shilpa Sachdeva on 20 Jan 14

It's such a shock for me when I heard d news.. I've followed her right from TV n later on this, website of hers.. I, have tried many of her recipes post marriage n you know I have, always been given a, compliment for all of them... Well for d recipes I picked from here d entire credit is to Tarla Dalal Madam n she was n will remain very special to me always as I love her her food her cooking n I have learnt cooking most of d north Indian dishes from her website

- Rekha on 20 Jan 14

Its really disheartening to hear such a news. To be true, I was a real tomboy hating anything that had anything to do with the kitchen or cooking. All I knew was to boil water or burn bread slices for sandwiches. Watching Tarla Dalal on TV and later on website prompted me to test my cooking "(s)kills". I am still learning, but yes, she is the one who should be credited for making cooking an art.

- vijaya on 19 Jan 14

I am an ardent admirer of Tarla Dalal and was truly disheartened when I heard of her demise.I did start my cooking with her recipes and vist her website almost everyday.Tarla dalal will always be an inspiration to my cooking healthy dishes.Thank you .I have no words to express my sad heartfelt feelings,I really miss her.

- Geetha Rajesh on 16 Jan 14

we all miss very much.may her soul rest in peace.

- mahesh thakkar on 15 Jan 14

We miss you so much Tarla ji, and will miss you always....may your soul rest in peace..we pray for you.

- Ashi Ravikant on 14 Jan 14

I have been to numerous cooking websites and I can honestly say that Tarla Dalalji's was the best when it came to the sheer variety of Indian food recipes. No other Masterchef gave as many healthy recipes as she did. Thank you Tarlaji

- manjari on 14 Jan 14

Her smile said it all -she put her soul into her reciepies.

- sagar pandit on 11 Jan 14

It feels very sad when the thought of you not being there comes. Indeed your the best cook. your recipes are so simple. Your book for infants and toddler's is the best book. It helps me so much for my daughter. Thank you. May your soul rest in peace. wishing your team good luck

- surekha suri on 10 Jan 14

Shocking that this queen of recipes is no more. she has made life easy for millions who dreaded cooking because they feared disastrous outcomes or bachelors and single people who needed a helping hand to quickly get together something they could have while coping with the other demands in their life. May her soul rest in peace. I envy the Gods who will now benefit from her delicious recipes.

- shivkumar on 08 Jan 14

Every time I try a new recipe, remember Tarla Dalal with gratitude. She made cooking easy and the perfect directions made trying out dishes an adventure which had a happy ending!

When I got married, I was quite young and had never really thought about going into the kitchen and making things other than eggs, tea, milk, sandwich, Maggie (you know what I mean). I never really had to cook as such at my husband’s home; we had a cook coming in and enjoyed a variety of meals thanks to him. But, there were days, when there was no cook and my in – laws were also out for the day or out of town. On those days, ‘I needed to fulfil my kitchen duties’. Those were the times, I referred to Tarla Dalal. My husband and I have enjoyed many good meals on weekends and holidays thanks to Tarla Dalal’s books. Whether it was the gujarati khana, her lovely Italian dishes or my husband’s favourite paneer tikka. We loved all her recipes. I remember, when we picked up the stir fry book, we made it a point to try each and every recipe in that book whether the cook was there or not. Such is the magic of Mrs. Dalal. When I discovered ‘Cooking and More’ I had to have a new copy on my table as soon as it was out. I must say, this magazine was enjoyed thoroughly by my whole family. When my daughter was born and it was time to feed her solids, I knew what I had to do; it was Tarla Dalal’s ‘Baby and Toddler Cookbook’ all the way. Now, my little girl is 2 ½ years old and eats everything without a fuss. The passing of Tarla Dalal has been very upsetting for all of us. As young girls, women and even older women who need to learn about modernised cooking, Tarla Dalal was always there in the form of books to help us out. We all loved her and her easy to make recipes that made us ‘great’ in the kitchen. Tarla Dalal, unknowingly, lightened up the lives of many a family through her craft and it is because of her that in a country like India, where everyone just LOVES food that families are happy, energetic and sleep soundly as their tummies are filled with delicious homemade food. All the best to the entire team and thank you for carrying on her legacy!

- sangeeta on 09 Dec 13

Go to any search engine and type - "the Best, Multi-cuisine, vegetarian", Tarla Dalal will be one of the first few results. As I complete 3 decades of married life, I have strived to play a few roles to perfection in an attempt to be a good cook, a conscientious mother, an efficient homemaker, a dutiful bahu, sincere spouse and an excellent host. As a person, I like to think I have evolved in my passion for food, creativity, organizational capabilities, practical and healthy approach to living, zest for life and my willingness to "share". If I have one regret, it is that I did not thank or convey this message to the person responsible for the above - My role model, Tarla Dalal ji. But, of one thing I am sure, the Gods up there will be easier to please, now that she is with them.

- Chitra on 09 Dec 13

I learnt about Tarla Dalal from my sister in law, barely heard her say one day about her cooking then one day I remembered her name and went on youtube to check a few of her recipes and ever since I have been her fan. You have blessed us all and we will always remember you even in death..may the good lord show you the path to enlightenment.

Tarla Mam was my guru to cooking , both simple and exotic.

Hope your site and cook books remain foreever.

I loved looking up Tarla Dalal's recepies and even bought her Mags. I watched her on TV, and found her so cute.Her simple directions and unusual innovations,her light non-greasy recepies were always appealing. I learnt about Guju dishes, marwari dishes and cooking was no longer a bore . I am goner miss u Ma'am !RIP.

- Pranjana Sinha on 26 Nov 13

I also told my daughters that u just follow her recipes and Ull never go wrong

- Manisha SANGHVI chennai on 26 Nov 13

Human beings are mortal. But Tarlaji will continue to live in the household of all Indians through her recipies. Having food in restaurant is real fun. But when we want restaurant like taste in our homemade food we refer to Tarla Dalal recipies. Everytime people appreciated me for my cooking I thanked Tarlaji from the core of my heart. My family is hard core non-veg but they have veg only when cooked in Tarla Dalal style. We pray for her soul to rest in peace.Jab tak suraj chand rehega Tarlaji tera naam rehega !!! Insha Allah

- Laila Begum on 25 Nov 13

My heart full reverences to her and God Bless her Family. May god bless her soul live in peace. Thank You for all the learning from Tarla Dalal Madam.

- Pavani on 25 Nov 13

A truly pioneering personality in the field of the Indian cookery scene. In fact Tarla-ji is one of the first persons who introduced western flavours and tastes to the Indian audience. Whatever i have learnt of cooking has been all thanks to Tarla-ji's easy to understand and follow cooking guides. Indeed, she shall always be remembered for the legacy she has left behind in the form of her recepe books and this lovely site! I will always give thanks for your contributions, maam!

- Aishwarya on 25 Nov 13

A great personality who will always be remembered by novices like me in the seventies. I used to attend her masterclasses in UK, and bought her books as well. They were written in a very followable format which I loved most. My heartfelt condolences to the Dalal family and the Team of this site.

- Nalini on 24 Nov 13

My heartfelt condolences to the whole Dalal parivar. Tarlalji was an inspiration to me and have used her recipes all the time. Tarlaji will always live on through her recipes. I don't think there will ever be a moment when I won't think of her,

- Kinjal on 24 Nov 13

When I moved to US after my marriage, along with other stuff, I brought two TarlaDalal recipe books with me. Even after 7 years of working and improving on my cooking skills, I still refer those books. I wait for the site homepage to refresh for newer recipes. My MIL teases me all the time, what would have happened to her son, if Tarlaji wasn't there. My 4 year old also loved watching your videos. He always thought that you were like his Naniji...such warmth came across when you taught a recipe. You will truly be missed!! May your soul rest in peace. Our prayers goes out for your family. May god bless them with courage to sustain the legacy you have left behind. We miss you...

- Ekta Panchal on 24 Nov 13

- Manjula Shah on 24 Nov 13

I felt- I've again lost my mother! 3 years back my mother passed away. But I was felling comfortable with her presence almost daily on my screen. Always eagerly waiting for Saturday's newsletter. She was always with smiling face wither in still pics or live on video. So sweet while explaining any recipe. I'm missing her but still happy to know that her team is continuing her work and guide us.

- DR. REENA SHAH on 23 Nov 13

Shocking & Unbelievable News Tarladalaji come back we need you; we all will miss you. You are immortal by the work done by you for the healthy life. You will live in our hearts for ever. Your approach towards healthy life will be always a guideline for the medical fraternity.

- Dr. Rajan Gupte on 22 Nov 13

I could not believe this shocking news!! She was a talented cook, good teacher and an affectionate person at heart.She accepted my invitation and came to Mangalore and held her classes for 3 days and donated the income for good cause. She stayed with me like an elder sister.A very simple and down to earth person.I& my children never felt that we were in company of a great celabraty.My children,who are in the U.S.A, still use the books autographed by her, with great pride. We will remember her good gesture for ever.God always calls good people early.!! My condolence to Sanjaybhai and all in the family...

- Usha Arun Banker on 22 Nov 13

the delights of vegetarian cooking by tarla dalal (1985 edition) was the first book on cooking that i came across when i was still in school. she has always been with me ever since then. eating food has never has been just a tummy filling process. i cannot express in words the loss.

She is a mentor all throughout my bachelor days..I regularly visit the site for her guidance even in simplest of the recipes.I came to know about her first during a show Cooking with Tarla Dalal years back,her witty gujarati jokes as well as puns were awesome..The liveliness,joy and happiness could be judged from her eyes easily..Through her wonderful exotic recipes her presence would be felt in all the homes.

- Prachi Gupta on 21 Nov 13

My heartfelt condolences to Mrs Tarla Dalal's family.She has indirectly given so much joy and happiness to me and my family. I am a working woman and was never into cooking. But when I got married, I started using Tarla Dalal's recipes and my family absolutely loved everything I used to make. I used to visit her website for any and everything I wanted to cook. The best part about her recipes are that they are so easy to make that a novice also can be a good cook soon. I miss her and thanks to all of you to keep her memories alive by making the website functional again...She has given a lot to people like us...Some things can never be put into words. And her contribution to our lives is one of them...Thanks so much....Shweta Shah

- Shweta Shah on 21 Nov 13

I cannot still accept that she is no more. "Tarla Dalal" has always been part of my life. Hers were the books my mom referred to, to make all the exotic dishes in the 80's. Her books were the most valuable marriage gifts I brought with me. Soon my husband too accepted her as the all knowing authority in cooking. Hers were the books and site I advised my daughter to check and learn from. She has been and will always be part of our many happy meals.

- Manisha Mehta on 21 Nov 13

I am shocked my Guru and inspiration for cooking is no more I am still in disbelief May her soul rest in peace sincere and heartfelt condolences.

- Loveena on 20 Nov 13

My heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Tarla Dalal's family. When I first saw her book in a store at linking Road Rotis and Sabjis way back in 1983 I was taken aback, because all the recipes are great. Even till date my children enjoy the paneer and cabbage parathas. I have a collection of her books and will never part with them come what may.May her soul rest in peace.

- Marian Kale on 20 Nov 13

It came as such a shock..the news. Mrs. Tarla Dalal's was a household name and she won our hearts with her homely, endearing manner of presenting her recipes. One could follow her recipes easily, more so because she made it sound so easy! It saddens me so much that she's gone but I know that her influence and guidance will be there always with us 'foodies'! May she rest in peace. My heartfelt condolences to her family and to her millions of fans the world over.

- simanti chaudhuri on 20 Nov 13

Hers was the first recipe I ever tried when I started cooking after marriage, and hers was the first cooking book I ever bought! I made her khandvi on Diwali this time, and just a few days later heard the news that she's passed on. It was heartbreaking. May her Soul rest in peace. I promise you that I will continue trying your recipes. You will live on through your recipes ma'am, you are eternal!

- Natasha on 19 Nov 13

My warmest condolences to tarla dalalji. I will never forget you in my life because whatever i have learnt in cooking today is by referring your books and website... Being a doctor, i don't get much time to prepare delicacies. But you have made it easy by letting us know that cooking can be fast and tasty too. I have never met you, dear tarlaji, but i am one of your sincere student and i promise you that i will continue to cook with the same zest and pleasure. May your soul rest in peace and shower your blessings on me always. Dr. Mousam panchamia

Tarla Dalal has always been a source of inspiration to me. I have been a fan of most or rather nearly all of her varied recipes indian and international. Cooking and more monthly magazine shares a special place in my book cabinet.invariably i always buy the latest issue of the magazine irrespective of using a recipe or not.mostly all in my family will read her magazine from first page to last page because it was filled with recipes,world cuisines,about different people and their communities and their interests,so much to ponder over.I have gifted so many of my friends and family subscription of cooking and more.Even on the net when i would search for a recipe for my family my search would not be complete if i did not visit mam.Tarla Dalal's website. I salute you and you have been a total guru to the countless people in India and Azbroad with your food laden cuisines in Vegetarian cooking.

- ARCHANA on 18 Nov 13

The first time I stepped in the kitchen and came out succesfully, was when I made a recipe out of your book. I have tried many from other ones, but the taste and method didn't connect with me as well as yours. Your cakes, pedas, pizzas, biryanis..etc etc etc. Everything so beautifully explained, simple to understand and tasty to tasty and exotic to look. Though your leaving the body was a deep shock for me, but your recipes have made you a legend. You will live always in our memories and the recipes. Thank you and god bless you wherever you are.

- Amit on 18 Nov 13

On 6th November when I heard the sad demise of Tarlaji,I was stunned & shocked too.I felt like someone very special & dearone has gone from my life.I could not believe to my ears & eyes to hear the news on tv & read the same in news paper.Whenever I wanted to make any dish for my family members,guests or my friends get together,I always picked recipes from starters,welcome drink to main course to desert. May your soul rest in peace.I had purchased her first book from the money I got on my birthday when I was around 14 or 15 yrs old.My first liking or hobby has been always cooking.You were my Idol for cooking.Whenever I feel like preparing something new or innovate,I used to take help firstly of your books than website & now videoes too.You were as my mother to me who used to teach me cooking when I was young,you taught me by step by step many recipes.I got recipes for almost each and every cuisine always.I'd never visited any other books or website except hers. My condolences to all her loved ones.

It is indeed (a big shock) sad to know that the kitchen diva, who has helped non-kitchen experts with her simple recipes to make wonderful dishes from time and again, is no more.. Tarlaji, never had a chance to feel your charisma in person but you shall always be remembered by everyone of us always..

- Deesha on 17 Nov 13

It was indeed a great shock to hear that she is no more, one who has been my guru in cooking when i landed up in a foreign country and my own mom was far away. Her recipes are simple and reliable. I started with her book pleasures of veg cooking in 1986 and now i have a whole collection. May her soul rest in peace.

Was shocked to learn of the sad demise of my mentor in indian vegetarian cooking as I was looked upon her for guidance which was always flowing like water. I pray to Lord for peace to the departed soul and may He give the family members enough courage and strength to bear this hour of bereavement. However, I am sure her good work in indian cooking shall continue in the way it is. Hats off to the internationally acclaimed Gujarati lady, who made a name in Indian cooking. Regards

I discover Tarlaji had cooking website only recently.

I will miss Tatlaji and her generosity to pass her knowledge greatly - where most people would hold back " their secret recepies"...Greatly...she shared her wealth of cooking knowledge with us all...

Real sad dismise

- Heena Pui on 15 Nov 13

Could not believe what I was reading which said Tribute to Tarlal Dalal. My first cooking experience started with her recipes from her first book when I got married. I can never forget her. Still it has not sunk in that she is no more. She is AMAR with her books and videos. Thanks for all the simple methods even a novice can pick up. May her soul rest in peace.

- Krishna Kumari on 15 Nov 13

I still can't imagine that Tarlaji is no more. Tarlaji's death is a great loss to all the mothers/women. We will be missing her great ideas and suggestions. May her soul rest in peace......

Miss a wonderful Chef for lifetime, but never the way she taught us how to cook. Love you Aunt!!! Inspired by you and your blog.

- Hema on 15 Nov 13

I was and will always be a great great fan of Tarla Dalal. I have each and every book of hers. I have always said that even if you are making a never-before-made dish for a party, if you follow Tarla Dalal’s recipe, you can’t go wrong, and in fact I have done that often – made a new dish from one of her books very confidently for a party. Lately I also watched all her videos and thought that her little tips that she gave in them (what to do and why to do it) while making a dish were so awesome because that was what made all the difference to the cooking. I will dearly miss all the videos she couldn't finish... May her Soul Rest In Peace and may the Almighty give strength to her family to bear the Loss. My support is with you and your efforts. I only wish I had the opportunity to interact personally with her while she was there....

- Nergis Parikh on 15 Nov 13

I was shocked.. i was traveling and so got to know about her passing away a day late. I have grown up seeing and eating what mom prepared referring to her recipes - the legacy continues. You were awesome and you actually made cooking fun and interesting. Your recipes were sure shot!! You will be missed. Rest in peace Mrs. Dalal.

- Priti Satpute on 15 Nov 13

She was an inspiration for the beginners...I always has learned new recipes and tried at home and got so many overwhelming responses...I cooked 2 recipes of when i heard of her death n given a tribute...thank you Tarlaji for such wonderful tutorials...you will be missed heaps..:(..RIP..May He give the family courage to bear the loss..

- Manju Malhi on 13 Nov 13

she was is nwill be queen of cooking recipes

- raxa deeak dagli on 13 Nov 13

She was and will remain to my generation - the best !!! For us vegetarians, she introduced us to a whole new world, of cooking multi cuisine world items at home and that too in veg. She literally opened our culinary journey. There can be no one like her. Once at the HongKong airport,boarding lounge for mumbai, suddenly all the women - all unknown to each other - had disappeared and grouped. The men were puzzled what had happened. Later they realised that Mrs Tarla Dalal had come there. All their wives had left them to buzz around bees to her. Such was her pull. May she live forever !!!

- Avni on 13 Nov 13

- Priya on 13 Nov 13

Tarla Dalal was indeed a great cook, but I think she was a greater human being. She came across as a very kind and good natured, simple lady with a permanent smile. The way she spoke hindi in her videos was very endearing, because she had a strong gujju accent. May her soul rest in peace.

- havovi dordi on 13 Nov 13

The tribute by Mr Sanjay Dalal and the Tarla Dalal team resonates for all of us who followed her or turned to her intermittently for guidance. On a personal level I was a tad too late in posting a thanks to two of her You Tube videos which as very rightly put, we celebrated Diwali with. Tarla aunty indeed personified “sharing of good things" as opposed to secret ingredients and closely guarded recipes that is the norm even in a family set-up. Watching her on television recently and hearing her make light of complex dishes makes me relate to her like the family member I wished I had. I considered it cheeky to "review" her recipes so it always ended up as a "thank-you" and one of these got me an autographed book which I really cherish. Tarla aunty has been part of so many food related conversations that it was only the invitations to the "RecipeBox" which made me realise I haven't actually met her. I think it was fortuitous that I contributed (the one and only time) to the last judged contest and got published. It was like being acknowledged by someone you adore. She's an inextricable part of our lives and her spirit will indeed live on through us - her extended family.

She Will be remembered by all..she taught me so many quick nd easy recipe...will miss u always... May her soul rest in peace..

- Bhumika Kothari on 13 Nov 13

Mrs Dalal was larger in life for me in my culinary skills... Mire so than my own mom. When i moved to india after my marriage, her books helped me please my husband, in-laws and guests. It helped me boost my cooking ambition and encouraged me to try variety of cusines which are still a favourites in my house today after 17 years. I cannot imagine her physical absence but she will continue to be my guide and cooking saviour even in her absence. The website is a great resource and i hope her team continues and takes her institution to a whole new level.

Dear Tarla aunty, I will miss you a lot. While I was reading about your life written by your dear son Sanjay, I learnt a very important lesson that "Good Things must be shared."

Sanjay, I saw the tribute when I logged on to find a recipe and was shocked. Somehow she seemed a permanent fixture :-). You were accurate when you said she shared joy. Her food was not about just food, but the fun of making it, the thrill of experimenting, and was very valuable for vegetarians like my family. My children choose their lunch from her books so I can make it. I will definitely miss her. Do keep up the work. I am sure she is looking on from somewhere :-) Miss you Ms. Dalal.

Hello, I came to know of her demise when my mother told me yesterday. Very very sad to know about that ! I remember my mother got a recipe book written by her and even as a child I did try out a few dishes from that ! And this site served as a lifeline when I went out of the country as I am a vegetarian. This name will be etched for years to come for cooking recipes and even though I have not met her, it feels one of your teachers is missing now! My deep condolences to everyone who knew "Tarla Dalal" !
