The people of village are very simple in thought and behavior. They are therefore very friendly and helpful. Whenever they celebrate a festival, they dance and sing together and cook small sized cookies called Pakwan, Goggi or methi tikkia.

Pakwan is a special sindhi snack that is often served with dal. Their combination is called Dal pakwan and is a popular sindhi breakfast. This is a heavy breakfast, so whenever I prepare…. I prepare dal pakwan for lunch

These pakwan can be even had plain with some masala chai or ginger chai. You can keep them in an air-tight container and they stay crisp
