Whilst growing up in West Yorkshire, my mother brought us up on tasty, nutritious, homemade Punjabi food. I learnt to cook many dishes from a young age, under my mother’s expert guidance. These recipes have been handed down over many generations. It is these that I would like to share with you all.

lentils (dal), to chicken and lamb dishes.”
As a sociable family, I have always hosted dinner parties for our friends and colleagues from around the world. “My Punjabi Kitchen” came about after many requests asking me to teach them how to make a “proper” homemade Indian dishes.
