The Sindhi cuisine is very diverse and unique and Sindhi’s are known for their love of food. I miss this amazing cuisine a lot, especially now that I am settled abroad and my parents have finally moved from Ulhasnagar.So to relive my days I made “Sindhi Curry” for dinner today. Which is a very easy gram flour curry made up of few vegetables and gram flour. A special mention to “Alka of Sindhi Rasoi” whose amazing recipes inspired and tempted me to make this.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 Tomatoes pureed
  • 4 Tbsp Gram flour (Besan)
  • 1/2 Tsp Mustard Seeds (raai)
  • 1/2 Tsp Fenugreek Seeds (meethi dana)
  • 1/2 Tsp Cumin Seeds (jeera)
  • 2 Tsp red chilly powder
  • 1/2 Tsp turmeric powder
  • A mix of vegetables – Diced potatoes French beans Okra (bhindi) Drumstick (seengi) Cauliflower floreats (you can use any of these vegetables)
  • A big Ball of Tamarind soaked in hot water
  • A pinch of Asafoetida (Heeng
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • Salt as per taste

Recipe Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan and add the curry leaves, cumin seeds, Asafoetida, Mustard seeds in it.
  2. When it starts to splutter add the gram flour and roast it till light brown on a low flame
  3. Once the gram flour is slightly brown add red chilly powder, turmeric powder and grated tomatoes and just mix it for a few minutes vigorously making sure there are no lumps
  4. Add 4 cups of water to this mixture slowly.
  5. Once the water boils add the salt, diced potatoes, french beans, drumsticks, cauliflower and let it cook on a medium flame.
  6. After around 10 – 12 minutes once the potatoes are almost cooked you can add the Okra as it is or by frying it lightly first.
  7. Once the Okra is cooked add the tamarind paste and let the curry boil for a few minutes.
  8. Serve this with hot steamed rice
My Tip: Do not overcook the vegetables as they might crumble in the curry. Also add the tamarind pulp only after all vegetables are cooked.
