Jeroo Mehta

Jeroo Mehta gives you exact measurements in her Parsi cook books so that your food will turn out just so.

Given that her book is considered a Bible by foodies around the globe, she’s got fans from at least three generations if not more! Parsi cookbook author Jeroo Mehta has certainly made life easier. Her book “101 Parsi Recipes”, which first came out in 1973 was an instant success. In 2008, a revised edition was published by Popular Prakashan. Last year again, a new edition of the cookbook hit the stands.

“When the book was out in 1973, it was the first cookbook in India to have colour pictures. I refused to settle for black and white pictures because I didn’t want a delicacy like Dhansak to look like a mound of mud twirling in some lumpy dal,” she laughs, as she recalls.
