All about us

Our philosophy is simple; No compromise on authenticity

Our Story

It was these principals that were at the heart of the company when Charanjit Sapal (aka Charlie) started the business in 2010. She still runs the company with her two children Gurjeet and Ria.

When Gurjeet went to university he missed her home cooked food so much that Charlie sent her sauce up for him to use.

This started to become a regular occurrence and she began to cook a batch every day! Little did she know that Gurjeet had enormous demand for the delicious sauce from his friends and he had started selling it around the campus for beer money!!!

When the truth finally revealed itself the family knew there was a demand for something more traditional and that is how Punjaban was born.

To this day, every jar that is lovingly hand-made is made with the same care and attention as Gurjeet’s curry was when he was missing his mums proper Punjabi cooking.

Our Philosophy

Use only the finest authentic ingredients

Turmeric is popular in mid-Eastern and Asian dishes. Along with added flavor, this spice gives a golden yellow color to your recipe.

Techniques passed through generations

Half the time, you might not even realize it's there! We think of coriander as a background spice, adding that little je ne sais quoi to many of our favorite dishes.

We'll never be just another curry brand

We never compromise on the quality of our hand-made curry bases!
