SINDHI CUISINE BY ROSHANI JETHANI



SINDHI CUISINE 

Before I get into the most interesting topic, I would like to say that almost 50% of people are foodies they want to try each cuisine and every dish in the world and 50% are diet conscious. They think before eating. 
Sindhi’s are famous for their culture and their food. Sadly, the trend of fast food and exposure to national and international cuisines is drifting many youngsters away from the lovely sindhi cuisine. The ‘chips’ and ‘French fries’ generation hardly cares about Sindhi Kheecha, Papad. Mocktails and canned juices pushed into the corner, the home-made Rose Sherbet, Chandan sherbet. The artificially coloured branded Mithaai killed the trend of sharing Maajoon, Khus Khus jo Seero, Ladoo etc. Sindhis satisfy their ‘sweet cravings’ with gajar ka halwa (Gajrun jo seero), Rabri, Dried grated coconut mithai (Narel ji mithai), Singhar (sev) mithai. 
Probably the only places you can still enjoy Sindhi food are few eateries like Kailash Parbat, and Bhagat Tarachand, or else on the streets of Sindhi dominated areas for example in Nagpur (Khamla and Jaripatka) and in Ulhasnagar, Chembur and Bhopal etc. Snacks like Dal pakwaan, Sindhi Koki, Sindhi patties with chola and dal moong increase the delicacy of Sindhi cuisine. In summer Raw mango Muraba, Awla Muraba and Sindhi pickles of mango and vegetables etc. Sindhis can make pickle of anything like garlic, green chillies, carrot, onion, cauliflower and many more these pickles are water based with regular oil and mustard seeds. Main course includes Sindhi Pulav, Sindhi Kadhi, Sindhi Degh, Sindhi Saibahji, Sindhi Tairi, Bheepatata, Sindhi Lolo. 
Being a Sindhi I love to eat and love to cook Sindhi cuisine apart from all the national and international cuisines Sindhi cuisine is my favourite as it is the vibrant one, sizzling and dazzling with lots of flavours , and a wonderful amalgamation of delish sweets, perfectly tangy curries, mildly flavoured gravies rich and wholesome biryanis, wide array of seasonal vegetables, awesome variety of flatbreads. The cuisine is simply invincible at least for true blooded Sindhis. 
Sindhi cuisine refers to the native cuisine of the Sindhi people from Sindh, Pakistan. Today, Sindhi food is eaten in many countries including India, where a sizeable number of Hindu Sindhis migrated following the independence in 1947. Before Independence, the State of Sindh was also under the then called Bombay and Sindh. Due to its proximity with Gujarat, Rajasthan and political ties with then Bombay, it shared similar culinary traditions. 
Sindhis in Ulhasnagar have preserved this tradition in the form of few special dishes like Batan Papdi, Sev Dal Sandwich, Dahi Sev Puri, etc. I hope you will enjoy reading a short summary on Sindhi cuisine. I’m not at all an expert but a lover of Sindhi cuisine and I am very grateful that I am able to share something about my favourite cuisine. I want that the whole world should have a glimpse of Sindhi cuisine and culture. Let the Sindhi food be counted in the popular cuisines in the world. I hope after sharing this blog on Sindhi cuisine there will be an increase in the Sindhi food lovers.

Turning point of my life. I, Nupur an Interior Designer by profession born and brought up in a small village place but it never restricts me from keeping my aims high. With this purpose keeping hopes high I shifted to Nagpur to achieve my destiny which is to be carved by me on my own. But still I am a free bird and free will designer may be in my version I take my life seriously but till the day talking about, I was in same notion. Life was like fun and easy going for me night life, wild parties free expressing of living was by note to evolve my life. New Trends and fashion can define me to such an extent that life seems to so Super Cool to me. But things are going to take a “U” turn with a single casual visit of my life may be for Good, I don’t Know?

Just this much for that friend, no details of anything, nothing about office, nothing about type of work, and right now

La' Quarantino

La' Quarantino No wonder Corona is a curse to the world but during this period, for the very first time after my school life I am living with my family. Normally, in day to day life we all are so busy in our work and routine. So, this Corona turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I never realized how much I missed them, how much I missed fighting with my sister, how much I missed my little Chinni who keeps following me all around the house. Never thought my day will be this hectic like office days and I would rarely miss office. I’m not a very talkative person and like my silent peaceful time a lot but here people are so talkative that it's a huge mess all over and they keep involving me in their chit chat. I realized even with all the noise around, I'm still peaceful and content to be making most out of this lockdown. Yes, our thoughts and way of thinking are way too different. Sometimes I seriously think “Have I ever actually "lived" with my fami

CORONA IS ALSO A BLESSING BY MRUNAL WANKAR

CORONA IS ALSO A BLESSING Life after the Covid-19 outbreak will never be the same as before. We are at the beginning of the end, waiting for a new beginning. Planet Earth will break its cooperation agreement with mankind unless we urgently revise our behavior. Over the last month, I witnessed possibly the largest global emergency in my life. My grandfather used to told me, at that time while emergency like situation or war like situations occurs there were this kind of lockdown are happened. That time no shops are opened or not a single man are roaming on the roads or not a single person travels. And now I am experiencing the same kind of situation. Not because of actual war which were happened at that time but this is the kind of manmade thing , because of that all the World are battling with this. But I am in my happiest time after so long, in terms of staying at home for long time almost a month with family only. I have joint family so I am not getting bored of this lockdown but act
