A Tribute To My Foodie Father

Sindh Da Swad~Sindhi Food Pop Up At Punjab Grill

And I am back to blogging! It feels really strange to accept the fact that I have been ignoring the blog since long but I can easily put the blame on the rough times me and my extended family had been through (more about that in my next post)! And while life could be really […]

The Four R’s-Reduce-Reuse–Recycle-Recover!

From what I observed in my home and around, I can easily say that our parents and grandparents were concerned about the environment way before the younger generation started making a hue and cry about global warming. Sticking to the […]

Kuneh Ja Bhee|Steamed Lotus stem Chaat

Apart from the quintessential Papad, pickle, Kadhi and Saibhaji, Sindhis are well known for their love for the lotus stem and they are the most avid eaters of this slightly nutty, mildly sweet, crunchy stem. Their insatiable appetite for Bhee is the reason that lotus stems are particularly found in markets in and around Sindhi […]
