Parsi cuisine started as an eclectic mix of Persian and Indian food. However, modern day Parsi cuisine really took shape from the time of the British rule in India. It then seperated from its Persian roots to develop and shape itself into a unique regional cuisine. Parsi food brings together flavours of freshly grinded spices and various local ingredients of Gujarat, Goa and Mumbai. It is not an overstatement to say that the Parsis are passionate and full of zest about their food.
Love of good food and drink plays a very significant role in every aspect of our culture. At parties and weddings most of the chat and discussion eventually leads to food and opinions are made on the quality and freshness of the food. Guests hurriedly make their way to the dining area, when the call ‘Jamwa chalo‘ is made – which means LET’S EAT.
