Attawa is a new restaurant offering dishes from the Punjab region of Northern India. With a menu designed by Arbinder Duggal, who grew up in Punjab and was a semi-finalist on Masterchef: The Professionals 2019, Attawa offers a modern take on Punjabi home cooking, with a mix of comforting family recipes and modern interpretations. Ravinder and Amar Madhray are the husband and wife team behind Attawa. The pair were ready to launch Attawa as a fully-fledged restaurant in Dalston in March 2020, just before lockdown threw their plans aside.

We love the sound of the pindhi chole, chickpeas slow-cooked in chana masala.
