Sindhi recipe collection has many exotic recipes. Most people although, think of Papad and Kadhi. However, Sindhi Tairi/Tayri rice is one such exotic recipe. There are many gluten-free vegan dishes also which have evolved over time. The food is not overly spicy, yet has very distinct flavor. Sindhi Tahiri is a sweet pilaf using jaggery. It is rich in nutrients too. Both dates and jaggery are rich in Iron.
We usually serve it with Saibhaji or Sai Palak and fried potato chips .
Usually, we eat this on Sankranti & festival. We also serve this during weddings, mundan, 9 ceremony and weekend brunches.
Sindhi and their love for food
Sindhi community is probably one of the biggest close knit ones. They also love adventure. They are foodies, travelers and also entrepreneurs. Hence, cuisine is a mixed bag too.
You will find lot of exotic items like pasta in curry. Probably evolved as a curry after loads of immigration and travel stories. Not many people new macaroni when we were growing up in India. We have a rich cuisine. Use a lot of nuts, milk, mawa while cooking. They love to throw dinners, parties and have a huge circle of friends unlike what may be portrayed in Bollywood.
