Aromas of Sindh is a collection of over 100 authentic vegetarian recipes from the delectable Sindhi cuisine, many of them passed down in the author’s family. Each recipe brings out the flavors of the author’s Sindhi upbringing, and the book is a sincere attempt to preserve and promote the culture and its cuisine.
The book has five sections: Breakfast, Main, Side, Snack, and Sweet, and includes a bonus section of seven additional recipes. Each recipe is accompanied by a beautiful picture of the plated dish and a story of the author’s memories with reference to the dish. Beautifully written and uniquely styled, the book will take readers familiar with this cuisine down memory lane and offer up a tasty bit of nostalgia.
Aromas of Sindh boasts a foreword by celebrity chef Vicky Ratnani and further endorses what the book stands for.
