Friends be it Parsi, Gujarati or Maharashtrian these delicacies from Parsi Dairy are distinctly superior.

Make it at home the easy way – Recipe HERE

Bombay Ice Halwa / Mahim Halwa or Ice Halwa

Another Mumbai delicacy best available at Dayaram Damodar and Parsi Dairy. It’s available in two colours white and yellow and I find yellow more tasty. There’s a fine oil paper in between two slices and taking off the whole slice intact from the paper is an art because one has the anxiety to eat it and peeling off the paper from the slice is a delicate job requiring patience.

Can you please explain how you do three cups of the pastry. Do you stuff it into the cups lightly or tightly packed? Approx what is the weight? Thanks

Meher – use the pastry pressed lightly. Each store carries different Khataifi.
The weight is approx 16 oz. I usually eyeball everything and add more milk, syrup etc.
