Kumas testComments : 1 Posted in : Article on ParsiCuisine.com, Cake and Pastry, Dessert, Snack, Video on by : Rita
On our Wedding Anniversary day, I thought, I will give my hubby Jamshed a treat of good old Kumas.
Jamshed’s mother Jaloo mai used to make great Kumas and so did my mother Parin and grandmother Tehmina. I have made Kumas myself many times, but I wanted to try it this time in a different way.
We learn from our “burzorg” (elder ones), so I thought why not try out the Kumas from Niloufer Mavalwala’s cookbook? I could not find her Kumas recipe anywhere on facebook or her blog, so I purchased her EBook.. Isn’t Technology great? In under 30 minutes I was off and running & using the e-cookbook and Kumas recipe!
Review of the E-Cookbook: The Art of Parsi Cooking: Reviving an Ancient Cuisine (Kindle Edition)
- The Kumas came out good!
- I added one more step to the process. I found that adding the melted butter later gives a more fluffy and less dry Kumas cake.
- I used less of the Nutmeg, Cardamom and changed the quantity of Saffron.
