Mama Sakina & her family originate from Changa Bangial, a town in the area of Gujar Kahn Tehsil in the Punjab province of Pakistan.
Pakistani cuisine can be characterised by a blend of various regional cooking traditions of the Indian sub-continent, Central Asia as well as elements from its Mughal legacy. The various cuisines are derived from Pakistan's ethnic and cultural diversity.
Cuisine from the eastern provinces of Punjab and Sindh are characterized as "highly seasoned" and "spicy", which is characteristic of flavours of the Indian subcontinent. Cuisine from the western and northern provinces of Azad Jammu & Kashmir, Balochistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the Tribal Areas are considered as "mild" which is regarded as flavours of the Central Asian region.
The word curry is not recognised in Pakistani or Indian cooking and was introduced for Westernised cooking. We refer to this style of dish as a Salan – a stew.
We also serve Cheese & Charcuterie Boards all week, supplied by The Great British Chacuterie Co.
