Misbah Mitha has run a successful business as a fashion designer for 33 years. The pandemic was the first time where she sat with no work. A friend and neighbour, who was well aware of her cooking skills, bumped into her during his walk one evening. He suggested that she become a home chef as that was the need of the hour. Her husband, a retired banker, was sceptical at first. That made Misbah even more determined! She discussed the idea with her school friends. All fans of her cooking. One suggested brand names for her. Another chose the final one: Tadka Tales. The customers of her fashion business were the early adopters of her cooking. As life comes back to near normal, Misbah’s fashion business took off again. Her home chef business is thriving too and she now runs two businesses. The need of a friend’s son who had gone to Amsterdam to study, made Misbah launch dehydrated gravies and that’s where her future focus is. Though she knows she can never stop making her butter chicken, white chicken pulao, chicken mayo sandwiches and other crowd favourites. Her husband? He became her biggest supporter once she decided to embark on this journey and is very happy to be her chief taster.
