As mentioned on our About Us page, we sisters are half Sindhi. Growing up, we got to experience the wonderful traditional Sindhi cooking of our grandmother, and the less traditional, but equally delicious, Sindhi cooking of our father. One of the most common dishes that our grandmother made was Sai Bhaji, a spinach-based one-pot meal. Like many Indian and Pakistani style dishes the vegetables and dal are cooked down until they form a thick flavorful gravy.
Once upon a time, I worked for a certain now-defunct investment bank. And for some reason, they assigned this lowly intern to one of those glass offices with a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking Times Square. The senior vice presidents crammed into their cubicles on my floor were not too happy about this. I was not so happy about this either, primarily because my glass office was about 15 degrees cooler than the rest of the over-airconditioned floor. I shivered in my suit jacket on “casual” Fridays in July in New York.
