Manna of the 21st Century: Parsi Cuisine (Paperback)

Cookbook review by Chander Khanna

Finding a Parsi Cookbook that has a true treasure trove of great recipes coupled with the authenticity of home cooking is really hard. Rita Jamshed Kapadia has successfully achieved both in this book. Back in December 2016, I happen to luckily attend one of her book tour events and had the joy to first try out some of her (free:)) dishes at the event, immediately bought her book followed by preparing many dishes. Many of the dishes such as Persian Jeweled Rice, Prawn Temperdo, Dar ni Pori, etc. have now become an integral part of our menu. So far the book has been more than sufficient to follow the recopies but the fact that I can reach out to the author for any questions is super comforting. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about parsi cooking.

Rita sure knows Parsi food well. I’ve always been a huge fan of her website ‘Parsi Cuisine’ and now I have her books as neat collections of recipes per genre. This one is filled with amazing seafood and fish recipes, something Parsis excel at, thanks to the coastal lifestyle. A must have for any seafood fan!

Parsi cuisine – By Rita Jamshed Kapadia

January 8, 2014Format: Kindle Edition

Verified PurchaseJust bought this little E-book a few days ago, when I saw it recommended on a friend’s blog. It brought back nostalgic memories of my childhood in Pune, where my Mom and aunt used to whip up all these wholesome delicacies as the occasion demanded it – be it Sev or Ravo to kickstart someone’s birthday, the Mitthu Dahi (Sweet Curd) during Weddings and Navjotes, the tempting tea-time snacks of Dar ni pori and Bhakras when we returned home hungry from school – they are all here in this little gem of a book and can’t wait to try them all out, one by one. Thank you, Rita, for this wonderful collection of typically Parsee recipes, all gathered in one little book and explained simply and clearly. A great addition to my Kindle collection. .
