Sharan Dhaliwal started her business Peatree Productions LTD in 2015 - an animation agency, working with exciting clients to create branded video for their social media channels.

Then one day she decided she wanted to create a magazine, giving South Asians a platform to talk about and showcase talent. And just like that, Burnt Roti was born. With a little help from crowdfunding, a lot of panic and stress, she published her first print issue in April 2016 and launched the online magazine in May 2016.

She does talks around the UK, radio and runs events with Burnt Roti.
