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 of the pakwan.Sindhi Dal pakwan is a dish everyone loves.This is a special Diwali breakfast recipe too in many households.
It is a wonderful brunch for the weekend.We love to enjoy this delicacy with a tall glass of rose sharbat and lassi /buttermilk.
Cut ripe sweet mangoes go well with it, in summer.
Yum and absolutely delicious!
I love making it whenever possible.Easy yet looks sinful.Most people can get them in Sindhi colony at any roadside stall.Just like how Gujarati stalls sell fafda on streets.However,when abroad,you gotta make your own pakwan.Make it and store it in a can for an easy breakfast later.

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 in spite of adversities.
