Awarded the Padma Shri in 2007, she launched the "Total Health Series" and hosted the show "Cook it up With Tarla Dalal." Dalal passed away in 2013, leaving behind a legacy of over 100 books and ten million copies sold. Her son, Sanjay, continues her legacy through her website, and her daughter manages her social media platforms.
