Pickles are an integral component of South Indian cuisine. We grew up eating them and love exploring new tastes and textures like mango and green chilli, gooseberry and rhubarb.

We wash, peel, chop, cook and preserve locally sourced and seasonal fruits, vegetables and spices to bring you the freshest selection of pickles in town. We make our pickles using ancient and ancestral recipes with spices such as fenugreek, tamarind, asafoetida and jaggery, salt and vegetable oils which act as natural preservatives for flavour.

  • Papi’s Pickles were a delight to work with from start to finish. The staff were highly professional, delivered fantastic food and the pickles are incredible. I’d have them back at the House of Parliament everyday if I could!

  • There are not many south Asian eating opportunities like this in London for the casual food appreciator. Everything tasted very fresh and there was good attention to detail across the meal – a very good diverse 3 course menu. I booked a table with a group of friends after work and was well looked after. Thumbs up!

  • Pickles-wise, the team have got their vinegary fingers on beetroots, carrots, limes, mangos and figs. Puts your local chip shop’s pickled eggs to shame, eh?
