Review by Roshan Rivetna

For non-Parsis, “Parsi Cuisine” offers an opportunity to explore this unique cuisine with favorites of Dhansak (Lentils), fish and meats, whilst also getting an interesting glimpse of the Persian-Indian heritage of the Parsis. Rita has taken great pains to explain and translate the ingredients, all of which are now-a-days available in any Indian grocery.


Truly a labor of love to preserve the unique Parsi (Persian-Indian) culinary heritageby Roshan RivetnaThis is a “must have” book for Parsi-Zoroastrians, especially those living in the West who wish to pass on their heritage to the next generation. Not only does it give recipes for almost all Parsi dishes (snacks, main dishes, sweet dishes, preserves and more …), some resurrected from classic volumes of past centuries, but also interspersed in the full-color pages, are interesting tid-bits of Parsi history, traditions, customs and ceremonies. It will go a long way to preserve and perpetuate our heritage.
