Koki is the Sindhi counterpart of the Gujarati thepla. It is an all-time favourite breakfast and lunch option, with variants that can be carried along while travelling too.

Made with whole wheat flour and ghee, these crisp and tasty kokis are healthy too. Quite tasty by itself, with the appetizing aroma of ghee, the koki can be enjoyed with just curd and pickle, not requiring any elaborate accompaniments.

While the common Sindhi Koki is flavoured with onions, green chillies and spices like jeera and anardhana, the Kali Mirch Koki that is flavoured with black pepper is ideal for travelling. Since it does not contain onion or chillies, it does not spoil easily.

The black pepper gives a nice flavour too, which is spicy yet soothing in its own way. In a dry and airtight container, the Kali Mirch Koki lasts for a week, while in the refrigerator it can be preserved for even 15 days!

This makes it an ideal travel companion. Those who travel abroad also like to take this along, so they can enjoy home-cooked food till they settle down and find their way in the new place.
