If you need to carry lunch to your office, it is critical that the home cook reaches your house on time.
Do a reverse calculation of how much time it takes to cook food and keep a margin of 15 minutes.
While you are hiring the cook, ask her if she can come at this time. Whether you hire through an
agency for cooks or through an online portal like JobNukkad, this should be clarified in the interview.
There is a word of caution here: We have seen employers ask cooks in Noida to come at 6 AM /6.30
AM. It is rare for cooks to agree to report at a time earlier than 7 AM. If this time is not sufficient and
hence does not work for the employer, they can get some preparation done a night before.
Chopping, pealing of vegetables can be done in advance. Keep the breakfast and lunch basic so that
it is manageable.
Similarly, some employers ask their cooks to come very late in the evening, after they return from
work say at 8 PM/8.30 PM. By the time the cooking and cleaning is done, its 9.30/10 PM. Female
maids for cooking may not find it safe to walk back home at such time.
