Sindhi Pakwan

Sindhi Pakwan Recipe is the crispy and deep fried Indian breads made with All-Purpose Flour (Maida) and spiced with Cumin Seeds. Some people make this Pakwan with the combination of all-purpose flour (maida) and wheat flour. It is often served with choice of Dal.

This Sindhi Pakwan Recipe is the famous Breakfast of Sindhi Community and considered as a heavy meal in morning. This recipe is told by my one of my Sindhi friend and she only explained its cooking process to me. I tried to make it in my best way, but got the true compliments, when my friend tasted it. She really liked it very much, and hence for me it was worth of making it. Even my family liked this different type of cuisine.Sindhi Pakwan

This Sindhi Pakwan Recipe can be even enjoyed plain with some masala chai or ginger chai, it means, it can be your Tea Time Snack as well. You can keep them in an air-tight container, because it remains crisp for long time. Some people even carry these pakwan in their long journeys and travelings, such as on holidays and picnics, etc.

Actually this pakwan is served with dal and because it is deep fried, it becomes extremely heavy, hence I prefer to making it for lunch. Yesterday I have posted Sindhi Dal Recipe, which is generally served with this pakwan. So try it at least once at your home and please let me know your comments about it.Sindhi Pakwan

Sindhi Pakwan Recipe

Sindhi Pakwan Recipe is the crispy and deep fried Indian breads made with All-Purpose Flour and spiced with cumin seeds.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Salt to taste


  1. Take a big vessel and mix in 1 cup maida, 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera), 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder, 1/4 teaspoon red chili powder and salt to taste.
  2. Mix it very well and add about 1 teaspoon of oil. Gradually add water and form a semi soft dough.
  3. Cover the dough and keep it aside for 20-30 minutes.
  4. Make about 6 small balls from the prepared dough and roll out each into a round poori/circle shape. Prick either with a fork or with knife. It helps your pakwan not to puff like poori.
  5. Heat good amount of oil in a frying pan and fry each pakwan over medium high flame for 2-3 minutes, by flipping over, till it turns crispy and golden.
  6. Remove on paper towels to drain the excess oil. When it is still warm, then serve this delicious homemade pakwan with dal.


You can cool down the pakwan and then store them in an air tight container for 2-3 days. You can even take half quantity of maida and half quantity of wheat flour for making this pakwan. This Sindhi Pakwan can be enjoyed with Sindhi Dal or even with Plain Tea.
