We’re Surinder and Safia of Pure Punjabi, a mother & daughter team dedicated to bringing you into our North Indian culinary traditions.
We give people the knowledge and the accessibility of our Indian kitchen while maintaining, teaching, promoting and passing down the traditional cookery methods of our mothers and grandmothers.
We do this through our Indian Cookery School, Indian meal kits and spice products, private dining, weddings and corporate events.
Everything we do is from the original ‘grandmother’ methods, all by hand. We still make our Garam Masala from scratch. This is home food and we specialise in our own region and not generic ‘Indian’ food. We crush, grind and blend all our own spices and teach the old ways of making Indian bread.
Our mission for Tabletwise is to show people that Indian food is healthy - when made according to the traditional methods :)Proud moments
We were thrilled to be named Top 8 Indian Cookery Courses in the U.K. by Olive Magazine…and for Safia to be appointed as a Gourmet Guru by Love Pulses, as part of the United Nations Campaign to make 2016 the ‘Year of the Pulse”.
We were also very proud to be selected as one of the 2016 Small Business Saturday 100, chosen from small businesses across the U.K. culminating in an invitation to a reception at No. 10 Downing Street.

We deliver cookery workshops, welcoming small groups with North Indian cookery tuition in the mother-daughter style. The Pure Punjabi cookery school was formed from consistent customer feedback from the pop-ups…to learn to cook the traditional home-style way.
Our first ‘Indian Experience’ cookery workshop was delivered back in June 2013, and since then we have welcomed hundreds of lovely customers into our home to learn the traditional methods of home-style cookery.
