Dal Pakwan is a classic Sindhi Breakfast Dish

Sindhi Dal Pakwan Recipe | How to make Dal Pakwaan from scratch recipe by foodomania

Look, I made Dal Pakwan! Can you believe I hadn’t tasted this Sindhi delicacy until a couple months ago?

A dal pakwan is a combination of dal (lentils) and pakwan (crunchy snack). The idea is to dip the pakwan in the dal and eat it. Adding to the flavors are sweet and spicy chutneys and onions and cilantro that take this dish up a notch. You don’t have to serve them on the side,  but I highly suggest you do.

Dal Pakwan has quickly replaced my favorite Ragda Puri. Both are similar in that there’s a lentil based curry and something crunchy served with sweet and spicy chutneys. The next time you have some time and want to make something peppy, think of making the Sindhi dal pakwan!   (more…)

The Food Innovation Story

This past weekend, I got to visit the quaint little offices of VKL Group in Mumbai and experience Food Service India’s hospitality.

They work exclusively with hotels, restaurants and caterers (HORECA). They provide the widest range of products to restaurants covering soups, appetizers, main course and desserts across cuisines such as Indian, Oriental/Eastern, Continental/Western and Fast food.

Arrabbiata Sauce with Pasta Recipe | Spicy Pasta Arrabbiata (Vegetarian) by Foodomania.com

Today, I’m sharing the classic Italian spicy arrabbiata sauce recipe. Spicy, delicious and ideal with spaghetti or penne, this is an all-purpose sauce that takes 30 minutes (tops) to put together.

Arrabbiata literally means “angry” in Italian. The name of the sauce refers to the spiciness of the chili peppers. The more you add, the spicier your sauce will become (duh). It works well as a dipping sauce too.   (more…)
