Adding to this list is Sindhi Koki, well known on its own, that is.a flat bread, made of a combination of masalas, onions and green chillies. Now, Coming to my recipe….*Bhagnari Jeera Koki…. Though a namesake is different in taste, texture, method and ingredients. *Bhagnari is a micro community originating from Present day Balochistan. Due to close proximity to Afghanistan, Sindh, Punjab , Bhagnari culture and cuisine has influence of all. Though its included broadly in the Sindhi community, Bhagnaris are different in terms of language, traditions, customs, cuisine etc. Bhagnaris had settled in Karachi pre-partition, hence inter marriages with Sindhis and Punjabis is quite common.
