On 28th November, Ravinder Bhogal of Marylebone restaurant Jikoni will host The Samosa Sisterhood, a special charity event to help women and children who are victims of domestic violence with no recourse to public funds. The event is in collaboration with Professor Aisha K. Gill Ph.D. CBE, University of Roehampton.

The Samosa Sisterhood: The Lowdown

The Samosa Sisterhood will combine a sumptuous feast curated by Ravinder with readings that celebrate women from a stellar line-up of guests, including comedian Meera Syal, musician Anoushka Shankar, chef and TV personality Ravneet Gill, actress Indira Varma, poet and writer Nikita Gill and news anchor Mishal Husain. DJ sets throughout the day will come from leading DJ and creative Yung Singh alongside the likes of Mera Bhai, Riva, amad, Moorni and more from the Daytimers crew.

The Samosa Sisterhood: Eat and Drink

The special menu will showcase dishes that are normally eaten with samosas from chaats such as bhel puri to a homemade steamed dhokla and an Indo-Chinese favourite Chilli Paneer. There will also be a generous Punjabi thali featuring channa bhatura – chickpeas cooked with dried pomegranate and spices with pillowy bhatura breads, ensuring no one goes home hungry. Desserts will come from pastry chef Ravneet Gill and will include her famous Rasmalai Cake from her new book Sugar, I Love You.
