Macroli Patata~A guest Recipe

As mentioned in my previous post, I am very much excited to present Mrs HAAG (She preferred to be addressed like that, since these are Initials of her name)
The lady originally from India, is now settled abroad , but Thankfully she still likes Sindhi food.Without any more delay I hand over to dear Haag, but not before expressing my heartfelt gratitude that she actually bothered to write the recipe and provide pictorials too.
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
It all started when I tried to call my mom in India and wanted to talk to her.I could not(due to some reasons) so the whole day passed thinking of the good old days I had with my parents when I was living with them. Days ,months , years,and even decades have passed that I have moved away from India and now I live here with my husband and 2 children.Each  day I come home from work I try to prepare a meal that we all have a liking for.Somehow never have been able to convince my son who says Bhaji should not exist.So I always have something special for him just like the way my mother did when I was younger.
My daughter on the other hand has learnt to eat anything and everything and a HUGE THANKS goes to INDIA,and our India trips.Then, there is my husband who was so picky when we got married but times change and anything that I put on the table nowadays is always appreciated.
Now back to myself,I remember When we went out with Mom and Dad and come home late we asked her to make this wonderful slurpy  soupy MACROLI PATATA, thats what we called it back then in India.So soon as I got home, I went straight to the pantry, got out the Elbow Macaroni and started to cook this dish.Its so simple and yet Indian but very Sindhi recipe.
So here it goes:

  1. beautiful and interesting combination, i will try this !!

  2. Hi Alka
    Thanks for a lovely recipe of maroni (or macroli to use the Sindhi rendition 🙂 ) with the lovely maanis.
    The winter is gone but in winter maani with Gur and butter (makhan maani). Kharak jo halvo is also made. wish you could give us recipes for it too.

    Right now we have the season for Soofi bair in Sindh (they are big berries & look like small apples; hence the name soof is used for them)
    Speaking of apples Sindhis make soofan jo murbo (Sindhi apple jam) as well and auran jo murbo etc. Just speaking about these yummy things is enough to make your mouth water…
    Keep up the preservation of Sindhi cuisine. You are doing a superb job.

    kind regards
