Sindhi Food

Sindhi cuisine (Sindhi: سنڌي کاڌا) refers to the native cuisine of the Sindhi people from Sindh, Pakistan. The daily food in most Sindhi households consists of wheat-based flat-bread (phulka) and rice accompanied by two dishes, one gravy and one dry. Today, Sindhi food is eaten in many countries including India, where a sizeable number of Sindhis migrated following the Partition of India.

Historical influences

The arrival of Islam within South Asia influenced the local cuisine to a great degree. Since Muslims are forbidden to eat pork or consume alcohol and the Halal dietary guidelines are strictly observed, Muslim Sindhis focus on ingredients such as beeflambchickenfishvegetables and traditional fruitand dairy. Hindu Sindhi cuisine is almost identical with the difference that beef is omitted. The influence of Central AsianSouth Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine in Sindhi food is ubiquitous.

The Sindhi "Sai bhaji" is a famous curry
Sindhi biryani, the Sindhi variant of thebiryani rice dish

Food for special occasions

There are food that are served during special occasions, such as during Diwali a Bahji (vegetable dish) called Chiti-Kuni is made with seven vegetables. If some gets chicken pox and after it is gone, it is common to make an offering and make "mitho lolo", a sweet griddle-roasted flatbread: the dough is wheat flour mixed with oil (or ghee) and sugar syrup flavored with ground cardamom. Sai bhaji chawal, a popular dish from Sindh consists of white steamed rice served with spianch curry which is given a 'tarka' with tomatoes,onions and garlics.

Vermicelli, typically served as a sweetened (sometimes milk-based) dessert, is popular: Muslim Sindhis serve it on Bakri-Id and Eid ul-Fitr. On special religious occasions, mitho lolo, accompanied with milk, is given to the poor.

Mitho lolo is also served with chilled buttermilk called Matho on various occasions.

A special sweet dish called 'Kheer Kharkun' are prepared and served on Eid ul-Fitr, it is prepared by mixing dates and milk, and slowly simmering the mixture for few hours. The dish is eaten hot in winters and cold in summers.


This section provides the translations between Urdu/HindiSindhi and English (British and American) cooking terms of common Sindhi food.
