“I am recommending you to as many people as I can. Your basic principle is excellent, and the spice packs that you provide are simply gorgeous, leaving the cook to decide how much chilli to add. The instructions are all straight forward so should not be off-putting for those without much experience.” Sylvia M.

north indian cookery school and meal kit boxes
We are Pure Punjabi – an award-winning artisan spice blends producer, traditional Indian meal kits producer and North Indian cookery school and food events experiences. We are home to a world of pure North Indian food traditions and methods of the grandmothers spanning generations of traditional Punjabi cookery teaching methods.
Our concept is simple: to deliver healthy, delicious home-style North Indian food and cookery techniques to anyone who would like to be able to reproduce the food of the Punjabi grandmothers. Simple honest food that was cooked this way when the first generation of immigrants arrived in the U.K. in the 50’s, which included our mother and grandmother, Seso Kaur Hothi.
OUR Family cookery mETHODS
Our Indian experience Cookery workshop, is centred on historic culinary methods and contemporary delivery. We unlock the mother’s teachings of our past for the indigenous population and second generation Punjabi descendants, bringing it to life in a modern age and setting, while promoting, preserving and teaching the traditional culinary ways.
We hope that we can deliver the food of childhood memories, to those of Punjabi heritage, who have lost access to the original cookery of their grandparents, as well as introduce our home-cooked dishes in a simple, easy and quick meal kit format to new and experience British cooks.
This is mother’s food – the daily diet and the nutritious food of The Punjabi, a region known as ‘The Bread Basket of India’. Punjabi people are farmers and small landowners, with a rich farming heritage and famed for hearty, substantial, nutritious and delicous food!
Indian Meal Kits
Our Indian meal kits are available in a huge range of individual meal kit sachets, Indian dinner kits, meal kit gift boxes as well as Children’s Indian meal kit boxes and bags. Our meal kit gift boxes and a huge range of our meal kits can accommodate almost every dietary requirement.

We produce all our spice kits and meal kits from scratch to bring you Indian food from the northern region of Punjab. Punjabi food is an incredible variety of Dhal & always served with freshly-made Roti (Chaptti) and Sabjhi, (vegetable curries). It is predominantly vegetarian food, but Punjabi is alos renowned for outstanding chicken dishes and feast dishes, such as Butter Chicken, Tandoori Chicken, Tikka Chicken Biriyani and Naan Bread.
