Thooma ware chawar or Sindhi green garlic rice is delicately spiced Sindhi recipe.During winters this is surely part of any Sindhi rasoi menu.You can pair it with any lentil or curry.It is a great vegan option.You can pair it with yogurt or raita if you are not avoiding dairy.It also makes a great combination with spicy fish curry.I am a vegetarian and I also love vegan food.I like eating it with a good bowl of spinach lentil curry /dal palak or sai bhaji. If you like meaty curries, pair this light fragrant rice with jackfruit and lotus stem/ kamal kakdi.
It is a great dinner recipe for winters.Saawa chaanwara or Thoom ware chawara are easy to cook.
These rice recipes when you come home after a long day at work.You get garlic chives easily outside India too.Hence,taste of home is never far away.After all food is a huge part of our memories.
Fresh garlic is a treat to work with.You love it once you taste it.Many communities use it.Some for chutney or while others for undhiyu.
It is also a great option to make a vegetable pilaf.You can also add some fried cashews and raisins optionally.
