Savour the Flavours of Sindh


Are you already smelling and tasting the tangy flavor of ‘Kadhi’ and crispy flavoured ‘Aloo Tuk’? For those unaware souls, ‘Aloo Tuk’ is another sindhi snack, which can either be consumed with your four pm tea or as a side dish with almost anything, and is as addictive as any other potato dish. On the other hand, ‘Sindhi Kadhi’ as the name suggests is the flavoursome ‘kadhi’ packed with vegetables, spices and famously eaten with rice. Some also add ‘Aloo Tuk’ as a side dish with their ‘Sindhi Kadhi’.

So, if your mouth is already watering for this dish, do take out your cooking book and start noting down the recipe.
