Of All the people Parsis take their food very seriously. No wonder, since Parsi cuisine perfectly combines together Iranian, Gujarati, British, even Portuguese and Goan influences in their food preparations and recipes.

When one is constantly on a look out for food  and searching  for most authentic cuisine, how can one say no to a festival like a Parsi food festival,  an annual event hosted by  Made in India at Radisson Blu Noida, specially when a Chef bought up in a Parsi Caterers family is going to do live demos of most authentic way of cooking Parsi Food.

We were invited for a Parsi lunch along with live demos of a Vegetarian and non veg dish by Chef Master Chef Kaizad Patel, who has curated a special menu for this  ten day long culinary festival – Parsi Food Festival happening from 14-23rd Oct 2016 , with some of the most authentic and traditional signature dishes from the Parsi kitchen, including a great mix of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian delights, like Bhujeli Kaleji, Kid Gosht and Chapat, amongst many others mouth-watering.

Every Parsi food has a typical spice called Parsi sambhar, so what is Parsi Sambhar. Parsi sambhar has four predominant ingredients – Red chilli , dry mango powder (Aamchur ), salt , little bit of hing and garlic, so these are like most basic ingredients of a authentic  parsi sambhar basically sticking to the roots but you may find a lot of variations to this.

And of course being a vegetarian (and eggiterian too ) i really enjoyed the Vegetarian dishes in starters  Makkai Cheese Na Pattice followed by Main course with  Bhindi Sambhariya , Patara Nu Paneer (click here for recipe ), egg preparation – Wafer Per Eedu, and Finally the  desserts – Chapat with Parsi Peg Ice cream ( Rum Ice cream  with a very strong rum flavor ) & my favorite of all from the Parsi food from today’s menu was Lagan Nu Custard. Lagan Nu custard is an Indian flavored custard  with Nutmeg and charoli (Chirongee ) and trust me it was out of this word.

Someone said that the beauty lies in small details and i was very delighted to see the mouth freshner range of Made in India which has given space to jaggery here, Is it Parsi or a part of Indian tradition but this was really very cute.
