Started by Rajni Singh, we are a family run business based at Willow Tree Farm in Cambridgeshire. As a typical mum running a busy household Rajni has been cooking Panjabi food for the past 30 years for her family but also for friends and neighbours who wanted authentic North Indian cuisine for parties and functions, so in 2017 Rajni and her daughter Surjit decided to use their culinary talents and create The Little Panjab Food Company.
Rajni hails from an old Panjabi Sikh family with a rich heritage and roots going back to re-partition Panjab. As a first generation British born Panjabi, Rajni was taught to cook by her parents using recipes handed down over decades, using authentic spices ground at home and fresh ingredients, she has now passed this onto her daughter Surjit and so the tradition goes on.
We describe ourselves as British by birth, Panjabi by heritage and passionate about our food. We make and serve authentic Panjabi cuisine as only we Panjabis know how to. Once tasted it’s never forgotten and we invite you to try it.
What we do
We hand make authentic Panjabi cuisine prepared using home ground spices, organic fresh vegetables grown at Willow Tree Farm and locally sourced meat from responsible and ethical suppliers. We cook to order catering for private parties, office functions, civil ceremonies, weddings and outdoor events where we prepare and sell our food to eat immediately or take away from our stall.
For private parties and functions we cater from 10 people to 100+ depending on your needs and choice of food. We deliberately keep our menu limited as we cook fresh from the masala to the thali (sauce to dinner plate) ensuring, quality, texture, visual appeal but most of all a taste that will leave you wanting more. We can of course cook a wide range of dishes, both vegetarian and meat but please note we do NOT cook beef or veal. For a bespoke menu simply call or email us to discuss your plans. We’ll even cook a sample meal for you to try so we can adjust the spice and heat (chilli) to suit your taste.
