  1. Hi, An authentic dish and wofedrnul picture. As for the post I couldn’t help giggling when I read about cheek pulling aunties There is an onslaught of non Sindhi dishes on TV food shows using different spices, Sindhi cuisine is simply the best. Watching TV one day I came across some footage of the people living in Thar who eat mariro muthias (vegetable Trailing Amaranth) which grows automatically when it rains. (Muthia means an oval shaped ball of this vegetable (they boil mariro and just add salt and a little bit of red chilis , and give it gheh jo daagh). Their maanis are always made of Bajhri (Bajra or Pearl Millet). which grows automatically in Thar and is also planted, its a lot stronger than the wheat, hence good for them. Desert folk need a lot of energy going up and down sand dunes keep it up
