Southeast Asians have a long-standing history in the UK dating back to the 1800s when Sikh and Punjab soldiers served in the British military. Later, in the 19th and 20th centuries, Pakistanis migrated to the UK to work in the British ships sailing out of Karachi and Bombay. Once they settled in their new hometowns, they brought along their rich cuisines – introducing London to festive feasts consisting of everything from rogan josh to tandoori chicken.
