Sindhi cuisine is enriched with eccentric flavours and a wide gamut of aromatic spices
Indian cuisine is as rich as its heritage. Every region and every community has some unique dish to offer, which takes the food culture of the country to the global platform of gastronomy. One such cuisine that contributed to the fame is Sindhi cuisine. Enriched with eccentric flavours and a wide gamut of aromatic spices, this cuisine is influenced by the cooking styles of Sindh region (now in Pakistan), which was a part of India before 1947. History has it – Sindhi food also has a strong impact of Central Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern, Rajasthani and Gujarati cuisines on it. However, today it is an integral part of Indian cuisine and is extensively enjoyed by both the Sindhi and non-Sindhi people of the country.
If you explore, you will find a wide variety of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes in the cuisine – each one with unique name and taste. Keeping this in mind, we bring you some Sindhi dishes and their recipes that can be a delectable inclusion in your meal menu.
