Phool patasha’s are phool makhana’s or lotus seeds. These are quite popular in Sindhi cooking.These patashas  are mixed with fresh green peas and cooked with onion and tomato to give a wonderful curry.The curry is normally served as the main course .I had prepared it for a routine Sindhi meal where I served it with two side dishes Cheeran wara Meha and Macroli . I had posted these dishes long back, but some how the complete thali was pending.

Sindhi’s normally serve rice and chapati for their meals, but rice is dominant during winter lunches and summer dinners.The Sindhi way to make a chapati is  very unique, it is smeared lavishly with ghee and crushed slightly.This makes the chapati very soft, and it is a treat by itself.  Sindhi Chapati is called Fulko and compliments this curry.

This is my post for BM #77, Week 1, Day 2 under Healthy Weekday Lunches.

  1. I have tasted the Sindhi version of chapathi as my SIL is Sindhi. And we used to love it. This curry with peas and lotus seeds sounds like a perfect combo for rotis. And I just love that thali..

  2. That is a yummy thali Vaishali — simply delicious. I wish the phoo makhani we get here is fresh, it tends to be stale most of the time. That is a yummy curry.
