Every Sindhi household has its own style to make these tikkis. However some make it plain without any stuffing and some make stuffed ones.

These are an integral part of cooking in all Sindhi homes. Come Sunday, holiday or any other day, we don’t need any reasons to prepare this.

Above all it goes very well as an evening snack with hot cuppa of tea, serve it to guests or with Sai bhaji/ Chana dal palak– bhuga chawal, or even simply with dal rice. It goes well with almost everything.
