Welcome to Parsi Cuisine.The Parsi way of cooking is traditionally adapted from Indian and from Indian ingredients and spices.
Since 1999 (yes 20 years) I have been inspired by old traditional Parsi cookbooks like the “Vividh Vani” and my mother’s cooking. I have cooked for family and friends, meticulously written recipes and taken photographs over the years.
This is a place to enjoy cooking delicious food, featuring over 400 free recipes, e-cookbooks, and stories.
Learn to cook from the experts with cooking tips. Experience the joy of cooking at home! Bring back those memories of parsi dhansak, ravo and mother’s special dish. Whether it is akuri or lagan nu custard, achaar or curry, I have nostalgic dishes for all your senses! Read stories and cook. Inspired from traditional cookbooks like the Vividh Vani.
My Cookbooks have authentic, tested mouth-watering recipes with historical background of traditional Parsi Cuisine. Parsi, Persian and Indian Heritage background is given wherever appropriate. I have tried to emphasize how nutritious Parsi-style of cooking is even now in the 21st century.
The Parsi Cuisine cookbook series is my labor of love. The cookbooks began in an effort to maintain and preserve our recipes and traditions for the next generation, many of whom have been raised in India. Today, as accomplished adults in their own fields my children have encouraged me to write these books for their generation.
Parsi Zarathushtis from India have settled in North America and other continents making the land they live in their home. Adapting to the local produce available, Parsi Cuisine takes on a nuance of that local area. This style of cooking incorporates Indian, Persian, Asian, Mediterranean and other diets.
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.
