  1. Rita, I love dhansak and will definitely try your recipe. My parents had very close Parsee friends and my mother made the shrimp patia too
    I also try and fit in local ingredients in my Indian and fusion cooking recipes on my blog. I live near Boston.

  2. The Zoroastrian Parsis have been settled in India since over 900 years and Parsi are major foodies and gourmands. Their unique food is derived from Indian foods like dal (lentils). Try the Dhansak dal(vegetarian recipe is here) and brown rice.

    Now that I am in USA and miss ALL the indian foods, I cook with american local produce and bring out that unique flavors of our motherland.

    Best, Rita

  3. I love Parsi food and am looking forward to trying your delicious recipes!
