In SINDH we called it BIHH. Its used here as vegetable. We cook it with fish, meat,spinach or on its own.Here is the recipe of BIHH curry. Try it, its very tasty.


  • Bihh (half kg, scraped and sliced)
  • Onion (two medium size chopped)
  • Tomatoes (three chopped)

  • Salt to taste
  • Yogurt (three table spoons beaten)

Heat the oil in a pan, add onions to it and fry on medium flame till they become golden.Add half cup water, tomatoes, salt, chili powder and turmeric powder to fried onions, cover the pan and leave to cook on low flame.

When water dries up, add bihh to it and cook for five six minutes then add yogurt to itmix and cook it very well, when the water in yogurt dries up then add enough water so the bihh are covered.Cover the pan and leave on low flame to cook.
