12/5/2015 Dal Pakwan ~The most famous Sindhi Breakfast

My adorable Sis-in -law made lip smacking Pavbahji and my Lovely neighbor send in this
Faral (chakli, chivda, ladoo, karanji, namakpada) all relished by everyone along with of course
loads of Mithais and Laai (Sindhi Chikkis), followed by more Pooja ceremonies at Relative’s
homes and finally some sparklers, crackers and Zameen chakris, not to forget lanterns and
Rangoli, before we signed off for the day, exhausted but contented !

So now lets hop to the recipe of the day, Dal pakwan ….which is a Typical, Authentic
Sindhi breakfast.It is deepfried, crisp, unpuffed Maida puris, flavored with salt, pepper and
ajwain, served with Chanadal, which in turn is topped with coriander chutney and tamarind
chutney and /or chopped onions…a true delight !

How to eat Pakwaan ? Do you have to break it in Dal and then eat with spoon ?

shyam chhabria January 29, 2013 at 4:12 pm

You have to break a piece of Pakwan and take dal in it and eat.

sweet mango and almond murabba – | theindiaphile
[…] Dal-Pakwan is a rather cool thing that is eaten by most Sindhis for breakfast and it
consists of a lentil dish made of split chickpeas which is scooped up with a thin, crisp fried
bread called a Pakwan which resembles a Middle-Eastern Lavash. The lentil dish (dal) is
rather bland but when topped with a spicy coriander and garlic chutney, the effects are
phenomenal. […]

u really give very nice tips & recipes.

Surrayya Kapri Novem b er 5, 2008 at 9:51 am

Hi again

You have produced yet another Sindhi masterpiece. I think you might have to inform
a non Beh eating person that lotus roots have to be cut at an angle while being chopped,
because a novice including myself might proceed to chop them like a potato.

The pic is lovely as usual


Indy Novem b er 5, 2008 at 9:00 am

Man, look at all that delicious Diwali food. I wish I Was hanging out at your place for
Diwali. Instead, I just polished off a bag of what Haldiram passes off as Chakli /

Belated happy Diwali to you and family, Alka!

Daal pakwan looks yummy! and i love that you topped the daal with dhaniya
chutney. That’s my favorite way to enjoy chana daal :).

We Punjus have something like Hatri too, it’s called Diwali, and is an earthen structure,
with the statue of Lakshmi ji inside and diyas outside.

Kelly Novem b er 3, 2008 at 11:25 am

I came upon your blog from the My Legume Love Affair round up. Your pictures are
gorgeous. You do a wonderful job of doing such delicious food justice.

Aparna Novem b er 3, 2008 at 9:53 am

Medhaa Octob er 31, 2008 at 5:55 am

Love dal Pakwan, now you make me want to make this and have. I was never fond
of Laai they used to make so many at home and I would wonder for what and whom

Surrayya Kapri Octob er 31, 2008 at 5:00 am

Delicious and mouth watering. The Laaii is as Sindhi as you can get. In lower Sindh
we call it Gurdhaani.

kind regards

sushma Octob er 31, 2008 at 4:27 am

U r break fast looks so similar to our Puri Baji.. Belated Diwali wishes and nice

Lovely, Alka. It is always interesting to read about how each family celebrates
Diwali. As for the breakfast wish every day was Diwali, looks mighty tasty.

Asha Chand Octob er 31, 2008 at 1:33 am
