Many times, while we are all longing and raving about tandoori chicken or papai chaat in a group, there is a Sindhi friend who does not get our fetish because his mind is fixated on aloo tuk or dal pakwan or tosha. Sindhi cuisine has a very loyal following and nothing would shatter Sindhi’s love for her own food. It is completely understandable because Sindhi cuisine does indeed offer a lot of delicious products. Coupled with the warm Sindhi hospitality (they love to entertain guests over lavish meals), the Sindhi food tastes even better.
Sindhi cuisine is famous for its deep and rich flavors and a lot of vegetables with different flavors. Although vegetables dominate a typical Sindhi spread, some households also often cook meat such as chicken mutton. If you really want to experience the magic of Sindhi food, start with the very popular snacks to get your tongue rolling.
Here are some famous Sindhi snacks that you must try:
Koki looks like Roti, but it’s not. It has the texture of a biscuit and is very thin in width, which makes it a very crispy and light snack. It is made from whole wheat flour and flavored with onions, coriander leaves and spices. It can be combined with papad or chutney or cucumber and is enjoyed with evening tea.

2. Sweet Koki
There is a sweet version of Koki Papad that tastes just as good, especially if you have a sweet tooth. It’s made from whole wheat flour again and sweetened with sugar and cardamom powder. Combine it with a chutney or a cucumber for a unique evening treat. Click here for the full recipe.
3. Sindhi Aloo Tikki
Aloo Tikki in a Sindhi spread tastes almost like Punjabi Aloo Tikki, with the exception of breadcrumbs which make this snack grainier, denser, and crunchier.
4. Tuk Patata / Aloo Tuk
This is one of the most famous dishes in Sindhi cuisine. Aloo tuk refers to fried potato pieces sprinkled with spices like red chili powder, coriander powder, and mango powder. Some people have it as a snack while others combine it with curry for a healthy meal. Click here for the full recipe.
