But rather than pace around the house, I decided that I will treat my kiddos when they come home wet and cold to a delicious lunch/snack, call it what you will.
And for those onion lovers, you know it makes any dish taste better – well, mostly. Kokis came to mind. These are decadently delicious chappatis that the Sindhis make for breakfast and serve with dahi and wheat halwa. I dispensed with the halwa part right away… Kokis are made with pure ghee where the atta or dough is kneaded in ghee. A family friend who is Sindhi told us that their day started off with a good dollop of wholesome ghee… well, those days are long gone, I think?
I have enjoyed these plentifully during my Delhi days and I have tried to make it a few times in the past, but I think this healthier version turned out best. So here we go
