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.

The Parsi Cuisine cookbook series is a 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 Rita’s children encouraged her to write this book 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.

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.

  • Vasanu is a healthy vitamin rich food; take 2 teaspoons with your morning breakfast.

  • Chicken, Lamb, Beef, Mutton, Eggs, Liver and other protein rich foods make the diet to build muscles.

  • Jardaloo ma Gosht is as nutritious and healthy as it was in the 18th Apricots are “fruits for the kings” is what I tell my kids – They are delicious with any meat.

  • Mumbai India in the 21st century is seeing the decline of favorite Irani Bakeries. Mava cakes and other Persian foods are covered. Mava Cakes are the “Cupcakes of the Future”.

  • New Recipes adapted from Sixteenth-Century Parsi cookbooks, tested and made in USA.

  • Vegetarian, Persian and Unique British Raj Era foods explained

  • A glance at a few hundred years of the history of Parsi Cooking

  • Master recipes with photos illustrating the steps.

  • Color photos of most recipes with tips on presentation

I hope these cookbooks inspire you to cook healthy wholesome food for your family and friends. Good Food leads to Good Health which leads to a Good Life. Enjoy food made the Parsi Way!

Best wishes for good health and good food, Jamva Chaloji !
