Sindhi cuisine is often described as comfort food, because it is. Period. Originating from the North Western part of the country (Gujarat, Rajasthan), Balochistan and Pakistan, Sindhi cuisine has for long been revered as the most heart warming cuisine. To give us a taste of the food of Sindh, Chef Mohit Chotrani opened his passion project The Sindh Kitchen. The Sindh Kitchen is a small delivery and takeout joint with a small seating and it has already made a home in our hearts.

The kitchen aims to keep alive the food tradition of Sindh, hence most recipes are unadulterated, untouched and authentic. The food they serve here will not only have you drooling but will also give you a warm hug, the sort that can only be had after having an extremely wonderful meal.

There’s much to try here, as the love and passion that has been poured into the kitchen shows itself through the food. We would recommend trying the famous Dal Pakwan- a soft mushy lentil curry, made with robust spices and garnished with raw onions and coriander and served with crispy, flaky pakwan.

You should definitely try the Sindhi Kadhi with Chawal and Aloo Tuk, the kick of the whole spices and the creamy yogurt Kadhi create a beautiful union with simple steamed rice while the deep fried to perfection aloo tuk play with textural combination of crispy and creamy.

They also serve a variety of small snacks and quick bites that you can grab to experience a whole new kind of snacking. Try the chicken/mutton keema pattice with Sindhi chhola and the butter biscuit chat, while the former is indulgent and super rick the latter will add a refreshing twist to your snacking experience. The Sindhi Dahi Vada, soaked in tangy tamarind chutney, sweet curd, and a zingy green chutney will remind you of the many Indian festivals and that ‘maa ke hath ka swad’.

And if the small snacks and couple of dishes do not cut the bill for you, try the Sindhi Thali. The thali comes with a variety of accoutrements such as Seyal Pav, Aloo Tuk, Kadhi Chawal, Dahi Vada, Mixed Seyal Bhaji and Phulkas. Topped off with Boondi, Papad and Sindhi Achar.

Make sure to try the Sindhi special Thandai which will take the edge right away from the summers and cool you down instantly.

The best part? Nothing here costs over ₹400, except the thali which costs ₹450 for veg and ₹499 for non veg. So you can enjoy dishes that are 5 star quality without paying the price. The restaurant is available on most food delivery platforms so can get the food delivered right to your door and enjoy the real taste of Sindh from within the comforts of your home.
