So… What is MealTango?

A food company with a motto ‘Great foods from Great Homes. Delivered to your doorstep’ is now making a lot of people in Pune happy and content with their seIMG_4370rvice and home cooked meals.

MealTango was started with a belief that the best food that you can get is from homes. The co – founders of MealTango are husband & wife duo – Saket Khanna and Neeta Valecha.

But how, when and where did it all start??

Let’s rewind……..

Saket had been abroad for a good 8 years, and really missed home food. After graduating from Oxford University, Saket was with his wife in London. They had an Indian movie producer’s visit, who absolutely relished a simple traditional Indian breakfast of Aloo Parathas and adrak chai. Having lived abroad for so many years made Saket empathize with the Indian movie producer.
Neeta and Saket immediately felt that good home food is something completely missing from peoples’ lives. Unless you live with your mother, can cook yourself, or have a wife/husband who loves to feed you, you can forget about it!!! And so they decided to return to India to start MealTango. The idea being, one should get home food wherever one should go.

 Currently, MealTango provides delicious home made food (right from simple daal-chawal) to exotic lasagne and regional favourites like Chettinadu Egg Curry …). All the recipes and the food is even approved by a food taster before coming onto the website, and strict quality control measures are in place to help ensure that you aren’t getting just ‘any home food’, but that it is really good food made in a good home using high quality ingredients  -  just like you would want!!

 MealTango delivers across Pune, India. However, over 400 homechef requests are with the website from across India and even countries like Italy and Australia.
At MealTango we believe we are providing food lovers the opportunity to sample really delicious food that is NOT harmful to you – unlike the preservative laden ready-to-eat stuff, or the restaurant food we resign to.
                                                                               With MealTango, you can select your
location, and get the food delivered to your doorstep in as little as an hour (depending on your location).
MealTango is delighted to provide free delivery on even low cost orders, and provides food for parties and companies (corporate orders) as well.
We don’t believe in mass production of food, and so usually do not take on orders of over 50 people.
 It is possible to join MealTango as a homechef, and also get corporate discounts and subscription meals.
So… if you are on the fence, take a dive and join in the food revolution.
Until next time,
Cheers,
Team MealTango

Here is what she wrote:

HOME COOKING WITH MEAL TANGO

Meal Tango is a brilliant initiative started by Saket Khanna – you choose online from the various options and regional cuisines available, from Assam, Kerala, Rajasthan, Maharasthan and more, and experience excellent, authentic home cooking at a shared table in a private residence. I had lunch with a Maharasthan family who educated me into the subtleties of the various sub-genres and clans within the community. It’s clean with lighter flavours and lots of vegetables.
