This is a keepsake cookbook, many Parsi Favorites from India are included. Dhansak is a popular Parsi dish, originating among the community centuries back. This is served with caramelized brown rice, which is rice cooked in caramel water to give it a typical taste and color. The dal cooked with mutton and vegetables served with brown rice, altogether is called Dhansak.

In Parsi homes, Dhansak is traditionally made on Sundays owing to the long preparation time required to cook the lentils and vegetables into a mixed dal.

Dhansak is also always had on the fourth day after the death of a near one. There is no meat consumed for three days after the death of a near one. And Dhansak is used to break this abstinence on the fourth day. Thus, Dhansak is never prepared on auspicious occasions like festivals and weddings.

Dhansak is made by cooking mutton with a mixture of various lentils and vegetables. Traditionally, four lentils Toovar dal, Bengal gram or chana dal, red masoor dal and brown masoor dal are used, but one or more of the lentils may be omitted or substituted. I make my Dhansak with Toover Dal only.
