A spin-off from Sikh Sanjog (a community business designed to help local Sikh women into the world of work), this enterprising little café (formerly Punjabi’n de Rasoi) is dedicated to genuine Punjabi cooking. Although it has some full-timers to keep things ticking over, most of the people you see here are work-experience volunteers. On offer is a menu that embraces freshly made pakoras, samosas, curries (chicken, fish or vegetarian), dhal, rice and breads, plus homemade sweetmeats. With no generic sauces or Indo-Brit gimmicks, the results are a world away from your bog-standard korma or tikka masala. The place is unlicensed, but prices are low and punters can look forward to sampling the kind of food Sikh families rustle up at home – whether it’s in Edinburgh or the Punjab. On Fridays, they offer home delivery (just place your order before noon).
