A simple idea from Sabir...
Our story starts in 1977 when Mohammed Sabir opened the first Aagrah in the small Yorkshire town of Shipley. His idea was simple; to recreate the food cooked in the home and in the villages in his native Kashmir.
The Executive Chef...
As the family grew, the business grew and Sabir's brothers Aslam and Iqbal helped to take the business from strength to strength. A notable achievement was Aslam winning the "International Indian Chef of the Year" award in 1996.
Award Winning Success...
The business grew to become one of the largest chain of Indian restaurants in the UK; with delicious recipes at the heart of our success. Both Sabir and Aslam received MBE's for charitable services and services to the catering industry. Aslam also received a lifetime achievement award at the British Curry Awards in 2013.
The birth of Tarka Cooking Sauces...
In 2011 we launched our Tarka Cooking Sauce range; our most popular recipes as favoured by thousands of loyal customers over the years. These sauces take us back to the roots of the Aagrah vision - allowing you to create scrumptious Kashmiri "home-style" dishes in your own home.
