Dag Mein Khumbiyun
Sindhi Food Habits - Sindhi Recipes - Sindhi Kitchen
Dag Mein Khumbiyun is one typical Sindhi recipe which in the modern day style cocking has almost at vanishing stage or at least seems to be misplaced in the forest of day to day presented vegetables. This is yet another Onion based vegetable from Sindhi kitchen. In the olden days this recipe was pronounced as “Khumbiyun Dag Mein “ but as where are progressive people so we will call it “Mashroom in Sindhi Style” or Simply “ Mashroom Curry”
This is historic fact that Sindhi are known for their food habit and addiction towards the delicious food hence the heritage of Sindhi youth is forcing them to find the old sindhi recipes cooked in the sindhi kitchen in olden days. Sindhi Mashroom is one such Old Sindhi recipe which is on the way of being rediscovered and introduced to sindhi kitchen though in a bit different style to make the sindhi food habit more versatile and more delicious.
