The first time I heard of Panjeeri was when my son was born in 2007, my firstborn. This food was made for me postpartum by a family member to gobble up so “I could heal quicker, produce more milk and get some energy” that was a no brainer I thought it must be good if everyone swears by it and are practically shoving it down my throat. However, the sandy texture and the overwhelming ginger and amount of clarified butter/ghee made me gag, I hated it!
This continued to my second child and by the time my third was born I had had enough. The choice of having it wasn’t there so it was either my way or the sandy way.
In 2011, my whole world turned upside down-my mum passed away whilst I was pregnant with my youngest. Fortunately, I found her recipe so started practicing till I finally hit jackpot. Finally, I got the perfect combination - the nuts were visible and you could taste them, the sand was gone and the ginger wasn’t killing me. Adding more nuts & seeds then semolina meant that it was better for me too and not just halwa!
Over the years I have sold here and there till lockdown January 2021 I officially went onto Instagram and took this to a whole new level.
Looking after you all is my priority, giving you the best I can is my mission and feeding you wholesome Panjeeri from my pot is my desire.
