Celebrations, rituals and food inevitably go together. And so it is with the Parsis. From Navroz, the dawn of the Parsi New Year, to Navjote, the initiation ceremony of a young child, lagan or marriage, jashans and ghambars, there is a variety of food to suit every occasion.
In this unique book, the author takes the reader on a journey far beyond the traditional stereo-typical dhan sakh recipe. For those who love fish, there is a choice of patra ni machchi or the famed tarapori patio amongst many others. The Parsi weakness for eggs, on the other hand, has created a range of mouth-watering dishes. There are also tea time snacks, sweets and desserts and a chapter on kitchen medicine straight from grandmother's recipe book.
Interlaced with the recipes is the author's piquant description of the customs, rituals and ceremonies that form the Parsi way of life.
A treasure-house of Parsi recipes and customs.
