When you are invited to a traditional parsi feast, and your host calls out “Jamva Chaloji” ! This means “Come Eat – Food is ready” in Parsi Indian Gujarati.
This is a website of delicious food made in most Parsi/Parsee Zarathushti homes. There are several recipes of traditional, non-traditional and fusion parsi food. Please search and locate the recipe. Recipes are organized by food categories for your convenience.
Since 1999 ParsiCuisine.com is committed to inspiring folks to cook Parsi \ Parsee food. You can welcome/inspire others to this type of cuisine too. Please do read the Foreword written by my father.
In Parsi Cuisine you will find a unique blend of spices that makes the food very appetizing, nutritious and wholesome. Vegetables, Meats and Dairy products are the foundation. Using Safforn, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves, Cardamom, and Rosewater flavor the food and remind us of the sweetness of life. Nuts like Charoli, Almonds, Walnuts and Dry Fruits give us strength. Curry Powder, Ginger, Garlic, etc. add the zest!
Parsi Zarathushtis from India have settled in USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, China, Russia, HongKong, Singapore, France and middle eastern countries like Dubai, Kuwait, Turkey, Eygpt, Pakistan, etc. Adapting to the local produce available, Parsi Cuisine takes on a nuance of that local area. This style of cooking incorporates Asian, Mediterranean and other diets.
