Dal Pakwan

Dal Pakwan is a typical Sunday breakfast at Sindhi households.It is a regular dish at weddings and during ‘Havan’ or ‘Pooja’.Moms’ love the simplicity of this dish.Children love the crisp texture and tangy flavor.

It is a wonderful brunch for the weekend.We love to enjoy this delicacy with a tall glass of rose sharabat and lassi /buttermilk.Cut ripe sweet mangoes go well with it  in summer.Yum and absolutely delicious!

Sindhi diaspora is spread wide across the world.It was inevitable due to incorrigible partition. You can find a Sindhi colony in most cities because no one bothered to give them a state. Neither did they beg for reservation.They have tried their best to preserve their culture,cuisine and language inspite of adversities.
