To meet with Michelin Star Chef Vikas Khanna has been the highlight of my culinary journey. After submitting my ‘secret tradition recipe’ f(Sindhi Dal Pakwan with Spicy and Sweet Chutneys) for the SelectChef 21 contest, I was one of the 3 finalists to compete at the Chef’s residence in Manhattan.
We had 5 minutes to select the ingredients and 30 minutes to make the dish. My dish – Besan and Khajur Halwa with coconut, saffron and mint flavors served with honey infused Rabri got second place.
While I did feel bad for not being the winner, the opportunity to meet this celebrity yet humble chef has been my most cherished moment!

Introduction to the Book
This book is a compilation of more than a 100 vegetarian recipes from the Sindhi cuisine with individual recipe pictures and a story alongside. These are authentic Sindhi recipes, many of them passed to me by my mother. In today’s day and age when many of these recipes are not made at home any longer, this book compiles all of them in a single place and makes it easy for a reader to refer to and make as desired.
The book is dedicated to my dearest Mother – an entrepreneur, an artist and a home-maker; who in her short life achieved so much and from whose life I inherited a great sense of both fashion and interior design! To my Father, to whom I owe everything I am professionally and personally – who taught me to give my best at what I do, be persistent, principled and disciplined; who taught me to live a healthy and happy life.
To my sister, who is a successful surgeon, and my role model and to my brother who is the true inspiration in my life.
In a very big part, this book is a tribute to the indomitable spirit of the Sindhis, who have, in the face of many hardships, been successful, prosperous and generous.
The book has 5 main sections – Breakfast, Main, Side, Snack and Sweet; together these have 100 recipes. There is a Bonus section, which has an additional 7 recipes.
The book boasts of a Foreword by celebrity Chef Vicky Ratnani and is a validation of what the book stands for.
