RCI - Celebrating Parsi Cuisine

Regional Cuisine of India - RCI - is the brainchild of Lakshmi of Veggie Cuisine. In the month of October, I am hosting my very first blog event - RCI -Parsi Cuisine.

Parsis arrived at Sanjan, Gujarat from Persia, in the 8th century. The legend has it that they approached the local king and assured him that they will be one of the locals , just like sugar gets dissolved in the milk making milk sweeter.
So come on everyone! Bring your dhansaak, paatiyo, patra ni machchi, tittori, sali murgi, aakuri, ravo and lagan nu custard! Jamva chaalo ji...
