Hello friends,

Its been a long time I have posted some recipe. Happy to be back with some delicious recipes  and blogging marathon. Today we are starting BM#28. I choose to cook Sindhi recipes for next 3 day.

Sindhi Cuisine refers to refers to the native cuisine of the Sindhi people from Sindh and Pakistan. The daily food in most Sindhi households consists of wheat based flat-bread 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 British India.

Today's recipe is one of the famous recipe Chana Masala but in Shidhi style. Here is the recipe...
