Wedding Menu

On the auspicious occasion of Weddings (Lagan) we Parsis make a special Lunch!

Beginning with Sagan ni Sev (Click for recipe), and Dahi (for all things auspicious begin on a sweet note and so does the Union, Plain lentil preparation in Pure Ghee (clarified butter) called Dhaan Daar or Mori Daar (Click for recipe) and to go with it, Macchi no Patio (Click for recipe) and the quintessential Salli Murghi or Chicken with a mildly spiced gravy garnished with Match sticks potatoes! (Click for recipe on making these match stick potatoes – parsi sali)

It’s significance can’t be underscored as Dhaan and Daar signify the home be filled with prosperity for ever for the newly weds and the fish signifying GOOD LUCK and Salli Murghi as my Grand Mom used say, mixing of spice with potatoes to give you a potpourri of tastes thus, signifying the coming together of the 2 families at the wedding and a congregation of the friends and well wishers for the Auspicious occasion of Marrige! The Divine Life Long Union!
