I'm not entirely sure what you're after, but you could start with some things on this website itself ... here are 4 tals - chautal, dhamaar, sooltal, tivra - that are associated with the Pakawaj but which could be played on the tabla:

also, kaharwa fits well with pakhawaj, try this:

| Dha - Ta ti | Ta ge Dha ti

the right hand keeps playing "Ta - Ta ti ", both Tas beeing open.
Emphasis goes on Dhas (play them with very ressonant Ges).

This rhythm always makes me dance, whatever the speed played.

Hope you like it

I used to know a couple of compositions for Phakawaj which revolve around the single phrase

Dha- tete Kata Gadhi GheNa

you can try to replace some kititaka tirikiti with tetekata gadhighena, if the speed allows for it. It gives a Phakawaj feel.
Even Chautaal (12 beats cycle typical for Phakawaj) includes this phrase.
Ta is played like Tin
Dhi is open Tun (toon)
Na can be played as Ne

I don
