Bungalows - the term is derived from bangalo, meaning literally "of Bengal" - had long been commonplace in India: the first reference dates from 1676 when the East India Company's agent in Madras referred to "bangales or hovels built for English staff". Initially, the definition of the word was a lightly built house with a thatched roof; a masonry house, by contrast, was called a "pukka" house. It wasn't until well into the 19th century that "bungalow" became synonymous with a single-storey dwelling.

It's a Hindi word popularized by Jamie Oliver. It literally means 'cooked', but when used in slang, it gives emphasis. And the British twat pronounces it wrong - you say 'PUK-kah', not 'pukka'.

It can mean everything is okay, finished, complete.
