Navroze Nosh: Ten Traditional Parsi Treats For New Year


Parsi New Year, which falls on March 21, marks the onset of spring and calls for partaking in a traditional meal of such staples as salli boti; patra ni macchi; dhansak; berry pulao; saas ni macchi; cutlets; custard and falooda. To help stir up your Navroze feasting this year, we’ve compiled a list of ten not-so-familiar (to non-Parsis that is) foods that we think ought to be included in the celebratory spread.
