  1. Thanks Amy. Glad you like the video. You can use fermented coconut water instead of tari. I just made bhakras using it.

    Yes, i have similar memories of my mother in law Jaloo mai using coals, no electric mixer and making great tarapori patio.

  2. I watched your Kumas making video with interest. This brought back child hood memories from 50+ years ago. My Dad’s Masiji Najamai Taraporewalla who lived in Tarapore used to make Kumas, Bhakra and Tara pori Patio and sell to Parsis all over the world. I remember her Kumas was made with Tari (fermented Sap from Palm trees). I still remember the taste, it was awesome. I know in those days Naja masi had no electric mixer nor modern day oven. She I remember baked on wood stove and put hot coals on top..It was wonderful. Thank you for bringing the old food to the modern era. I enjoy your posts.

  3. How do I custom search for recipes. Does not seem to work. I ve used a chicken biryani recipe from tthe site. Terrific! Cannot find it anymore. Help!

  6. I am so glad you used the recipe and enjoyed your own cooked food. This is the driving force behind this site and my passion for people eating good parsi cuisine. Thank you for the blessings Yasmin.

  7. I made vagareli khichri after reading on yr site & I must say its super—earlier I used to make plai with toovar dal & eat it with raita but this khichri doesn’t need any thing else if eaten off the stove–thx
    Same way I made malido also & I really bless you for the recipe
