Punjabi Junction is the social enterprise and trading arm of Sikh Sanjog. Founded in 2010, the café premises has provided traditional Punjabi home cooked cuisine to the people of Edinburgh, whilst also giving Minority Ethnic (ME) women training and employment opportunities. The women who worked at Punjabi Junction learned valuable social and practical skills that can be applied in any workplace. Covering literacy, numeracy, communication, social and customer care skills, the training the women were given covered a lot of bases whilst also reinforcing social inclusion.
All the recipes we use have been passed down from mothers to daughters for three generations. And we have now tweaked these recipes to fit in with current trends without compromising the taste or authenticity. Our range can now be consumed by all as we have been able to adapt these recipes to suit vegetarian, vegan and gluten free allergens.
Based in Edinburgh Sikh Sanjog provides a programme of youth work and community development through outreach and advocacy work. We provide support, information and advice to intergenerational clients providing links, stepping stones and learning to help people enrich their lives.
Punjabi Junction delicatessen range has been in the background as the accompaniment to the main hot food menu but we are now proud to put them in the front of the line to shine!
