Parsi Saas is a tasty, delicate, savory white sauce.
Add any fish or shrimp and it is manna from the heavens.
Indeed this Saas is different. It is something I like serving my family often. Easy to make and a variation from the white saas we are all used to. This is brown and has a robust, roasted flavor. Serve with Red Masoor ni Khichri, sliced raw onions and fried Papads.
