He passed away after suffering from a cardiac arrest.
His sudden demise terribly shocked and saddened everyone, especially those who were ardent followers of his show and those who are closely associated with the culinary industry.

He can be seen expressing his joy on the special occasion, while also sending everyone a message to be happy and keep enjoying food always. His simple message of peace, and request to keep ‘hanstay muskuratay’ to his fans, turned out to be his last media interaction with his followers.
Here’s a glimpse of him celebrating with his colleagues, earlier yesterday.
Shockingly, within a span of a few hours, news broke that he is no more.
He was known to share a great rapport with his fellow chefs, and was an integral part of the Masala team.
Chef Tahir Chaudhry was an internationally certified chef with years of experience, both locally and abroad.
He was famously known for cutting down the cost of ingredients and putting together dishes which would be affordable for the masses. His shows, ‘Cooking on a Budget’ and ‘Chaska Pakanay Ka’ on Masala TV had built a strong viewership over the years. He had also worked in Dubai, France, and Italy before settling in Pakistan and growing to fame.
Following his demise, his followers have expressed their deepest condolences through social media
