Sindhi cuisine has gifted us many delicious foods that are now popular all across the country. But there’s still more to be explored. We discovered another interesting recipe from the Sindhi food repertoire that deserves all the attention like its counterparts. Thumm Patata is a yummy sabzi made with green garlic (hara lehsun) and potatoes (aloo). This simple, Indian-style aloo sabzi with the addition of unique flavours from green garlic, is a must-try. We all are very familiar with the flavour of potatoes in our everyday sabzis, so this dish will not be too different from what we are used to eating. The garlic greens with a hint of garlic combined with crispy potatoes make for a terrific combination that can be paired with roti, paratha or any other Indian bread.
Green garlic is the highlight of Sindhi Thumm Patata or aloo hare lehsun ki sabzi. Green garlic is actually the younger version of garlic which is harvested before the garlic bulbs develop fully. So, what you get are long green stalks with tiny white bulbs in the end. It is the green stalks/leaves that are actually used to make this dish and may other dishes, not just in India, but all over Asia. Green garlic is often considered an alternative to spring onion leaves as they look almost the same with same texture and a slight difference in taste.
Green garlic carries the same health-benefitting properties as regular garlic pods. They are also rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and help greatly in boosting our immunity.
So, without further ado, let’s dive into the unique but no-so-distinct recipe of Sindhi aloo hare lehsun ki sabzi
