About Pokko

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to peruse the Pokko website. My name is Sasha and I’m the founder of Pokko. I’m a first generation Canadian with roots from Southern India. Pokko’s authentic flavours hail from where my parents were born, in Chennai. I started making variations of what is now Pokko back in 2019 and was thrilled to see how it was received. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit…

Fast forward to 2021, I was re-inspired to bring Pokko back into the hands of my customers, albeit becoming a new father and having a full-time job. Needless to say, my son was my inspiration to persevere and get Pokko off the ground.
Now more than ever, I’m thrilled to be able to share with you a little taste of my childhood, with a twist.
Your stomach will thank you later,

Pictured here, the best cook I know; my mom. She used to (and still) makes a variation of Pokko when I was growing up.

The kids would end up tossing it back and forth hand to hand and eventually eating it as it would come piping hot off the stove resulting in several mouths “burned”…but it was all well worth it!” *instant gratification sometimes has consequences 😅
