“Parsi Cuisine” is the traditional food of Zoroastrian Parsis all over the globe. Since 1999,  ParsiCuisine.com, has provided free recipes, food news, health tips and articles on this website.

India, USA, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Germany, United Kingdom and Europe are some of the countries where Parsi/Parsees make their homes. According to the NY Times most individual Zoroastrians appear to be thriving. They are well-educated and well-traveled professionals, earning incomes that place them in the middle and upper classes of the countries where they or their families settled after leaving their homeland in India.

Some basic guidelines of the Parsi way of cooking:

  • Vegetables, Meats, Eggs and Dairy products are the foundation of the parsi diet.
  • Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves, Cardamon, Rosewater, and Vanilla flavor the food and remind us of the sweetness of life.
  • Curry Powder, Ginger, Garlic, add the zest to the palate.
  • Good Food, Good Health, Good Life.
  • It is well known that Turmeric, Ginger, Garlic, Cumin, Saffron, cinnamon have health benefits. Do not be afraid to add a pinch here and there. Happy cooking and stay healthy!

    Thanks Amy. Glad you like the video. You can use fermented coconut water instead of tari. I just made bhakras using it.

    Yes, i have similar memories of my mother in law Jaloo mai using coals, no electric mixer and making great tarapori patio.

    I watched your Kumas making video with interest. This brought back child hood memories from 50+ years ago. My Dad’s Masiji Najamai Taraporewalla who lived in Tarapore used to make Kumas, Bhakra and Tara pori Patio and sell to Parsis all over the world. I remember her Kumas was made with Tari (fermented Sap from Palm trees). I still remember the taste, it was awesome. I know in those days Naja masi had no electric mixer nor modern day oven. She I remember baked on wood stove and put hot coals on top..It was wonderful. Thank you for bringing the old food to the modern era. I enjoy your posts.
