Blogging Marathon# 28: Week 3/ Day 1 Theme: Sindhi Dishes Dish: Dal Pakwan My theme for this week's BM is "Sindhi dishes" and I'm going to start it off with a very indulgent Sindhi dish, 'Dal Pakwan'. Traditionally this is served for breakfast, I have to say it is very a filling breakfast that one might skip lunch after having this.
