Lamb tender and not overcooked – I did it

By No comments

“Has anyone cooked with Costco Australian Lamb? I have tried making sali botti, biryani with it but each time it comes out with a almost dark color and tough. Is it my masala or what! Using adoo lasan (ginger garlic ) to marinate. Any tips to keep the meat light colored and tender?”

The response I got was so nice! People do help out with tips ! Thank you everone on PER and ParsiCuisine group.

Birthday of Fire

Mubarak to all Mazdayasni Worshippers – Parsee Zorastrians around the world
Adar roz and Adar Mah is a very auspicious day for fires. We may even consider this day as the birthday of fires. The day prior to this (roj Daepadar i.e. yesterday 20.04.2020 )is regarded as the birthday of all hearths and hearth fires, and that is why many Parsi homes decorate their cooking places with vermillion and turmeric paste and draw the Afarganyu, chipyo and chamach over there.
On the auspicious day Adar mahino adar roj several sacred fires were consecrated. The most important fire for all us Zoroastrians – the sacred Iranshah – also celebrates its birthday on this auspicious day. May we always make ourselves worthy to aspire for the blessings and protection from our sacred Iranshah.
