The Parsi Trail: Top 7 Parsi Restaurants In Mumbai


The Parsis take their food very seriously. No wonder, since Parsi cuisine perfectly braids together Iranian, Gujarati, British, even Portuguese and Goan influences. Think dhansakwith its roots in the gently-spiced meat and rice dishes of Iran, layered with Gujarati spices and dal. Or imagine saas ni macchi, transforming an insipid béchamel sauce into a flavourful egg and vinegar-based fish dish. Naturally, the best food is to be had at Parsi homes. But there’s hope yet for those without Parsi friends; luckily, Mumbai is dotted with charming Parsi restaurants and Irani food. We explore a few favourites –

The Parsi food pilgrims


When diaspora Zoroastrians acquaint themselves with their roots in Gujarat, Parsi classics make their journey sweeter

The Parsi food pilgrims

I’m going to be honest with you. I’m a Parsi but I’ve always had a somewhat tenuous love for Parsi food. Of course I liked the odd dish here and there—dhan-dar chawal, simple yellow dal and rice usually eaten with a spicy prawn patiyosali marghi, in which the chicken is doused with crisply fried potato sticks; the plump globes of Parsi paneer soaked in salty whey. But the dhansak that everyone raved about, the patra ni macchi, the gloppy akuri, the eggy lagan-nu-custard… frankly, I couldn’t see what the fuss was all about.
So when I heard about the year-old Zoroastrian Return to Roots (Zororoots) programme, which sees an intrepid band of Parsis escort young diaspora Zoroastrians on historical and cultural trips around India, I dismissed the whole thing. “It’ll probably involve eating a lot of dhansak, caramel custard and praying,” I scoffed to my friends.

But then something unexpected happened. Perzen Patel (caterer, blogger at Bawibride.com and one of the participants) started tweeting about her trip earlier this year. “Lunch today was at the WZO dharamshala in Sanjan, the bustling port where our ancestors landed,” read one of her tweets. “Most people buy bangles, sudrehs or religious items as souvenirs from Navsari. This BawiBride buys vinegar coz food is religion!” read another one.

As Patel’s trip slowly unfolded on Twitter, something within me flickered gently to life, urging me to find out more. The most intriguing part for me was their sojourn in Gujarat, a bastion of sorts for my people, where cities and towns still bear strong traces of the Parsi identity.
It was only fitting that the trip began at Sanjan, where a commemorative pillar marks the arrival of the Zoroastrians (either in the eighth or the 10th century; there is no agreement on this). The World Zoroastrian Organization guesthouse that housed the band of merry travellers “is popular for its preparations of tarapori patiyo, a sweet-sour dish made with dried Bombay duck, and sukka boomla no patiyo (pickled dried fish),” says Shireen Havewala, Zororoots founder and one of the trip organizers. On the last tour, however, the participants ate tangdi chicken and kheema(“totally avoidable,” grumbled Patel), simply because those were the freshest dishes.
But even Patel admits that the star of the show was “Jamshed uncle’sdoodh na puff,” a dish not unlike Old Delhi’s daulat ki chaat. Across towns in Gujarat, the puff was, by necessity, a winter dish. Fresh, sweet milk is thoroughly boiled and left to cool overnight in the garden, with a wisp ofmulmul covering the dekchi (pot). The next morning, the dew-drenched cream that has risen to the top is beaten until a frothy cloud forms. The froth is then scooped into glasses and eaten at once. Today, of course, anyone with a refrigerator can make it at any time, as Jamshed Gandhi, WZO guesthouse manager, did.

But it was the group’s visit to Surat’s Dotivala Bakery that really tickled their palate. It dates back to 1616, when the region was under Dutch control. Yearning for a taste of home, the colonizers set up a bakery and employed five Indians to run it. The English eventually ousted the Dutch, but one of the bakers, Faramji Dotivala, continued baking bread. Sales, however, dropped. Perhaps it was too expensive? And then a strange thing happened: The bakery began to notice a demand for days-old dry bread, which sold for less. Over time, it morphed into the rusk-dry Irani biscuit. In its wake came the Surti batasa (a flaky, buttery round biscuit flecked with cumin) and the sweet nankhatai.

Current proprietor Cyrus Dotivala, a direct descendent of the venerable Faramji, was a generous host to the participants, sharing baked goodies and stories. “The (Dotivala) bakery in Surat uses 200kg of flour to sell more than 500kg of batasa, a special Parsi biscuit now adopted by Indians the world over! Heading to the kitchens of this 200-year-old bakery (sic) was magical,” tweeted Patel. Slowly, gently, her enthusiasm was whittling away at my condescension, piquing my curiosity for this intangible cultural history.
Yet, it was the little town of Navsari, some 40km south of Surat, that was arguably the culinary apogee of the trip. For Parsi bon vivants, Navsari is inextricably associated with the EF Kolah store, purveyors of Parsi condiments for well over a century. Its pickles, prepared with Kolah’s special cane vinegar—called sarko and brewed in wooden casks in exactly the same process since 1885—are its most famous products. There are legions of fans for their gharab nu achar (fish roe pickle), the sweet bafenu, made from an entire ripe mango, and gorkeri nu achar, made from half-ripe mangoes and jaggery; the vinegar is used in everything from saas ni machhi to stew.
Anushae Parakh, a 23-year-old Pakistani Zoroastrian, staggered home with boxes full of goodies. “I stocked up on the achars and masalas which I do not get in Pakistan,” she says. “My suitcase still smells of tarapori patiyo (a tart and sweet pickle made of Bombay duck infused with vinegar).”
Among the disorderly churn of Navsari’s Mota Bazaar is another Kolah establishment: Yazdan Cold Drink House, owned by Jamshed R. Kolah. The Gujarati and English signboards proclaim Yazdan’s brief menu: ice creams, flavoured sodas including ice-cream soda, and the doodh cold drink (falooda), with its attendant scoop of ice cream.

While most delegates went to the Navsari fire temple, two group members—Patel and Arzan Wadia (another Zororoots founder and trip organizer)— stole away to Yazdan. “I had the kesar pista and the gulkand ice-creams, both of which were fantastic. With the gulkand, you don’t get the sharpness of rose essence, and you can actually bite down on crushed petals,” says Patel. With its bare tiled walls, graceless furniture and steel utensils, Yazdan lacks old-world allure, but there’s no diluting the scrumptiousness of the ice cream.

Not far away is Mama Patticewala, where Wadia and Patel dug into the delicious pattice. “I’ve known about the shop since my childhood—my maternal grandparents are from Navsari—and it’s quite the institution,” says Wadia. “Their most famous item is the potato pattice stuffed with coconut and other nuts, which usually gets over by noon.”
For Parakh, the most memorable meal was one she ate at Jamshed Baug. Built in 1849, the Navsari baug is one the best-kept Parsi dharamshalas in India, with rows of sloping roof-topped low buildings standing around a wide courtyard. “The quintessentially Parsi dish of curry-chaval was made with a unique Indian twist, but it still reminded me of home,” she says. “The taste of Gujarati-Parsi food in India is different from that made in Pakistan; the spices and herbs really make a difference.”
Suddenly, unexpectedly, I was yearning for a taste of the Parsi curry, usually made in India by incorporating roasted and ground poppy seeds and sesame seeds, even grams and peanuts, with the regular curry masala.
The Zororoots tour ended at Dahanu, a postcard-perfect seaside town in Maharashtra, with winding lanes and rustic houses. Butterfly-bedeckedchikoo and litchi orchards slope away from the railway station. Although there are a few bakers and entrepreneurs here, most Iranis have structured their lives around the fruits. On a speedy lunch-stop just outside Dahanu, the participants dug into chikoo chips, a speciality of the area. “We also had saas nu gosh (mutton), which is unusual in Parsi cuisine,” says Patel (usually, Parsis make the glutinous white saas or curry with fish). There was also plump boi (mullet), its flaky flesh slathered in a shell of masala. This was simple Parsi food cooked and eaten as close to its cultural roots as possible. As endings go, this one tasted pretty good.
But was it really an ending? As I researched and then wrote this story, I could feel my personal notions about Parsi food shifting, from dishes that I’d seen virtually every day of my life to the carrier of the culture of a particular time and place. With every bite of my batasa, I was also consuming a piece of hybrid Parsi history; every mouthful of saas ni macchiwould make me wonder about the curious evolution of Dahanu’s saas nu gosh. Food is so much more than just food; this was just a beginning for me.

Tatrelo Kolmi (Prawn) Patio


Tatrelo Prawn Patio Ready

As many of you know I love travelling, especially culinary based travel. The idea of exploring a new place through its food sends butterflies buzzing in my tummy.

But, after a few weeks of said gluttony the Bawi me starts craving for her plate of Dhandar – plain yellow toor dal served in a simple tadka of ghee, garlic and jeera. The thought of this creamy dal served on a bed of steamed white rice alongside some E.F. Kolah’s spicy Methiu (mango) Achaar generally has me salivating for most of my return journey home.

However, there are days when you want something a bit fancy with your Dhandar. For those days we have Patio.

Tatrelo Kolmi Patio in Red Pot

The Parsi Patio at its very basic is a sweet, sour and slightly spicy seafood accompaniment featuring coriander seeds, jeera, garlic, jaggery and cane vinegar. Why is the dish called Patio and not a curry or masala? Well, that’s because this dish was historically made in the ‘patio tapeli’ – a unique utensil that is wide and flat at the bottom with bulging round sides.

There are heaps of different Patio dishes like this Lagan no Patio I’ve written about before. We also have a Pumpkin Patio for the vegetarians as well as a Tarapori Patio for the fish lovers. But, the Tatrelo Kolmi (Prawn) Patio is the easiest to make of all and can be ready to serve in under 10 minutes. Here’s how you can make it – ingredients at the bottom as always.

Marinate the prawns in turmeric, red chilli powder and salt; keep aside. While this marinates, finely chop the onion.

Add the chopped chilles and dhana-jeera powder and mix until well combined

Add Masala for Prawn Patio

Tip in the pureed tomatoes and jaggery mixing everything well. Don’t add any water to the pan, and let it cook uncovered so that the moisture released from the tomatoes dries out. After about 3 – 4 minutes, add in the chopped tomatoes as well and let everything cook.

When the tomato has reduced – you want a thick consistency with very little gravy – add in half the coriander, vinegar and the prawns. Cover the pot and let it cook for five minutes.

Take off the heat and add in the rest of the coriander as garnish. Serve hot with Dhandar or by itself with some yellow Khichdi and Far-Far Sariya or if you’re not a rice lover then just atop a bowl full of the dar.

To make enough for four you will need:

500 gm prawns (about 20) shelled and de-veined but with the tail on
1 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp red chilli powder
2 tsp dhana jeera powder
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 tbsp garlic paste
2 tbsp oil
2 green chillies finely chopped
6 tomatoes (4 pureed and 2 finely chopped)
1 inch knob of jaggery
2 tbsp cane vinegar (can replace with white vinegar if unavailable)
Big handful of chopped coriander

Food Trails – Perzen’s Paradise


Her unbridled love for food, passion for her lineage and enthusiasm to share anecdotes only a Parsi can ever tell you over a meal, led Perzen Patel to set up the food-centred Bawi Bride

Perzen Patel’s story recalls bits and pieces of the acclaimed movie, Julie & Julia, where a young, married city girl takes up a unique cooking challenge and blogs about it. The 28-year-old founder and ‘chief tasting officer’ of Bawi Bride recounts her journey to every Parsi’s paradise.

Tell us about your journey with food…

Eating food and feeding food runs in my DNA. My maternal grandmother, whom I loving called mamaiji, ran a Parsi dabba service before I was born. At the age of 15, I knew I wanted to do something in life related to food, so we moved to New Zealand for nine years, where I studied hospitality and marketing and when my mom sold kebabs and pattice.

I came to be known as the ‘continental chef’—someone eager to whip up dips, pastas and baked dishes—so much so that for my wedding lunch, rather than having the traditional Dhandar Patio, my parents requested I cook nachos.

 

Mamaiji's-Prawn-Curry-and-Steamed-Rice

 

From ‘continental chef’ to ‘Bawi Bride’, how did you traverse that phase?

Six months into getting married and moving to Mumbai, I realised I’d have to learn some Parsi cooking. Especially since I had married a blue-blood Parsi, who loved his Dhansak and Patra ni Machchi.

I was always on secret calls to mom in New Zealand at midnight! I found barely any trusted resources online to learn Parsi food. Given the rate at which Irani cafes are dying out, I worried that soon the history and stories behind Parsi food would be lost, if nobody did anything about it.

So, Bawi Bride started as an attempt to document my quest into mastering Parsi food and restoring it back to its former glory. I coined the term to fit my lineage and my status as a ‘newly minted bride’. A month into the journey, #BawaGroom and my readers convinced me that simply writing about Parsi food wasn’t enough and that I should start feeding it to others too. So I started with weekend special menus, which grew to a full catering menu. Later in 2014, we hosted our fist pop-up experience.

 

Bawi-Sasu's-Kaju-Chicken

What are the services Bawi Bride is best known for?

Bawi Bride has grown into a full-fledged business! I cater for anywhere between four to 70 people, plan Parsi pop-ups at my almost-century old Mumbai home, conduct personalised one-on-one cooking classes, and offer daily Parsi meal service (where no single dish is repeated within a month!).

 

Do you try your mother and grandmother’s recipes?

Most of these recipes are theirs but I trust Katy Dalal’s Jamva Chaloji and my newest favourite is Time and Talent Millennium, a compilation of over 300 Parsi and ‘continental’ recipes cooked by Parsis that were originally contributed at a book club.

 

Grandpa's-Kheema-Kebabs

What are the challenges you’ve faced?

Well, I am not a professionally trained chef, so, everything I’ve learned is trial and error. But that’s also been a lot of fun and has resulted in many great innovations—the Lagan nu Custard ice cream was a result of an overdone custard while the Sali Boti Pizza came from having no idea about appetites and making about two extra kilograms of the dish.

 

Chicken Wing Farchas

 

And your successes…

I wouldn’t say there’s any one single success story because I enjoy each day in the kitchen. If I had to pick one, it would be the look in the eyes of my guests, when they have their first bite of a Dhansak—that makes it all worth it.

 

What’s next on your to-do list?

Hopefully further exploring the Quick Service Restaurant space, investing more into operations and being able to host Parsi pop-up experiences in other cities besides Mumbai.

 

Happy-customers-eating-at-a-Pop-Up

What are your favourite Parsi foods?

I love cooking, eating and feeding my mamaiji’s Prawn Curry Rice, Dhandar and Lagan no Patio, Boomla’s (Bombay Ducks) and my grandpa’s Kheema Kebabs.

 

Perzen_Bio

Best advice you’ve ever got?

Don’t cook when you’re upset.

 

Is there one golden rule that you never break when cooking?

I follow a recipe to the T the first time I try it. Of course you’re going to amend it as you go along, but it’s important that the first time, I understand the vision and stay true to the chef who developed the recipe.

Your biggest influences?

My mom and my mamaiji have greatly influenced me. My paternal grandfather taught me how to buy the best fish and that it’s okay to travel a distance to get good produce and ingredients.

 

BOX

Parsi cuisine is heavily influenced by the foods of Iran and Gujarat, both places where the community has lived in for over 800 years. Their love for mutton and dry fruits comes from their Iranian lineage, while liking fish and everything sweet yet sour at the same time, comes from living in Gujarat, so close to the coast.

If you’re looking for a hearty meal, the best place for one will always be at someone’s house. Patel suggests Kyani for breakfast and snacks. For lunch, Ideal Corner or check out the Bawi Bride Kitchen.

Kheema per Eeda


Kheema per Eeda – Parsi spiced minced lamb topped with fried runny eggs

 

Chance are these days given the love for a plate of spicy kheema in my household, there are never any leftovers but if there every were I would still use to them to make a delicious meal with Indian dishes being my inspiration. My mother made a few things with leftover kheema that are probably my favourite dishes to eat.

She always made the best parathas ever! And I always loved when leftover kheema was stuffed in paratha with lots of coriander and chillies, fried in butter and served at breakfast. Although one of the other dishes I remember was Kheema per eeda; simply put spiced minced lamb simmered and topped with fried eggs. The joy of mopping the plate with the minced lamb gravy and the runny eggs is seconds to none.

It’s a Parsi addition to our thriving regional meal, and there are other variations too including one with potatoes which are a breakfast staple in my home. I make Kheema per eeda if I have leftover minced lamb although it doesn’t stop me from cooking minced lamb just so I can make it either! The recipe for kheema is a really simple one with not too many spices but super delicious. At the end of the cooking process crack the eggs over the simmering gravy and let them cook. Served with chapatti and some salad this breakfast (or lunch!) addition is one that will always have you coming back for more.

Tribute to Irani Cafes


Tribute to Irani Cafes

Last Updated: 20th May 2015 06:01 AM

“SodaBottleOpenerWala is a concept restaurant with a bar. For my wife Sabina and me, Mumbai is an integral part of the journey of our lives. The Bombay Irani cafe is a rich part of the Mumbai tapestry, and sadly, a dying legacy. We delved deep within its unique world to bring alive the nuances- both for cuisine and its atmosphere. The familiarity of Irani cafe is key to the experience and Sabina brought that canvas to life,” says AD Singh, the MD of Olive Group, summarising the concept behind the venture.

Reminiscing about his life in Mumbai, Singh talks about how the place got its interesting name, he says, “Parsis often have surname related to their trade. When I was growing up in Mumbai, I knew a person with surname Haathikhanewala which was a source of constant humour for us. So the name SodaBottleOpenerWala draws its inspiration from that.”

Parsi classics

Coming to the food, the menu includes a prefect balance of classic Parsi dishes and the street foods of Mumbai. While Parsi classics like dhansak (mutton cooked with lentils and served with brown caramelized rice and kachumber) or patra ni machhi (pomfret steamed with chutney of coconut and mint) are obvious choices from the cuisine, dishes like Bombay raasta sandwich or bheendi bazaar sheekh paratha has Bombay written all over it. The Irani bakery menu consists of classic delights like berry and badam nankatais, mawa cake or lagan nu custard.

Pheteli Coffee (coffee and sugar beaten together for a frothy consistency), raspberry soda or parsi choy from the Irani Chai bar completes the experience. The place also has a bar that will be operational from July.

After Gurgaon, Delhi and Bangalore AD Singh, is expecting a warm response from the denizens as well. “The food here is mostly Indian, which has the potential to reach all the cities in the country and even abroad. Hyderabad was an obvious choice since Olive Bistro & Pub gives us a significant presence in the city and a good understanding of its people who are well travelled and curious about new cuisines,” he says.

With a lively vibe and good food, SodaBottleOpenerWala has all the potential to attract the foodies to the place who are either chased by the nostalgia of Irani cafes or are keen to take the first bite of the legacy.

Zarin’ Secrets


zarinssecrets

Zarin’s Secrets, is a venture started by me through which I am trying to revive old Parsee recipes. I have with me, my grand mothers old recipes for Home Made Authentic Masalas as well as Bhakras , chutney for Patra ni Machi , Kolmi No Achchar, Gajar meva nu achchar, Kachi keri no Murabbo and Gor papri to name a few.

My aim is to keep adding to the repertoire…. In the Masalas, I sell Parsee Dhana Jeeru masalas, Parsee Sambhar masalas, Dhansaak Masalas and Parsee Curry masalas. All masalas when sold are given along with a recipe of the dish whose masalas you have bought. The idea is to make easy Parsee cooking even easier and take it straight to your kitchen.

Please do check out my page on Facebook Zarin’s Secrets and contact me if interested.

Mummy’s Kheema Cutlets


Kheema Cutlets, Parsi Food

It is obvious by now that I am quite the mummy’s girl. No matter what the problem, I’ve found that my mom always has a way of getting us through it – cliched as that sounds! However, I realised that I had not yet shared the story of how my mum’s Kheema Cutlets got us through one of our greatest adventures as a team. So, on Mothers’ Day, here’s the story of Mummy and her Kheema Cutlets.

Perzen and Shernaz, Mom and Daughter

When we emigrated to NZ, my mom and I didn’t have much. While we had brought with us our life savings, it wasn’t a lot and soon the pressure of mum not yet finding a job started taking its toll. We had a small home and while we had bought a bed there was no microwave, no sofa and no TV. We had moved to NZ in winter and there was nothing to distract us from the sound of the cold wind seeping in through the window cracks except each other’s company.

We each hid from the other how miserable we were and kept at it. Going back to India wasn’t an option – we only had enough for 1 person’s ticket – and at one point we were worried if we would make next month’s rent. To ensure this didn’t happen, Mom started cooking food at an Indian couples house while I took up a part time job stocking shelves at the local dairy on weekends.

A couple of weeks later, Mom found out that the local Parsi organisation was having a function and the Indian couple suggested that she should have a small food stall there. Having never done something like this, both Mom and I were nervous but decided to give it shot. We decided to sell Kheema Cutlets and Pav – a Parsi version of the Kiwi Sausage Sizzle. The stall was a runaway hit – we sold off all the 200 cutlets we made and both of us were pleasantly surprised. With our first profits, we bought a microwave for the home.

Mom had a job by this point but we continued with the Cutlets making. And, with the next few stalls came a TV, a second hand sofa, a showcase. Soon – the entire house was furnished with the money we made from selling Mummy’s Kheema Cutlets.

It wasn’t easy making 200 cutlets at a time – we both used to marinate the meat until late at night, wake up at 4am on the day of the event and fry till the entire house was filled with the aroma of Cutlets. Both of us dreamt of Cutlets and having fried so many weekend after weekend we could barely stand the taste of eating one, delicious as they were.

Mom finally stopped making them when I graduated from school and started University. There’s a lot of things my mom has done for me since then as well but I’ll never forget those days. Her Cutlets got us through that first difficult year in a new country and gave me a better life. Her Cutlets made me a confident sales woman and taught me the value of working hard. And ironically, her Cutlets gave me the confidence to turn to food when I moved to a new country myself.

Mothers Day, Perzen and Shernaz

Happy Mothers’ Day Ma – I would not be half the woman I am today without you.

And now, here’s her recipe for making them at home – ingredients below the post as always!

Chop the coriander and chillies finely, wash the meat and marinate it with all the spices.

Kheema for Kheema Cutlets

Soak the bread slices or the brun bread in water for a few mins. Squeeze out all the water and add the mushed bread to the mixture. Mix well and let this marinate ideally overnight or atleast for 30 minutes.

Bread in Kheema Cutlets

When you are ready to fry the Cutlets, remove the marinated meat from the refrigerator and let it come back to room temperature. Taking a small chunk roll it into a smooth ball and then flatten it into a Cutlet with the palms of your hand. In a separate bowl, whip up the eggs and also start heating the oil in a frying pan. Coat each Cutlet in rawa and then the whipped eggs before lowering it into the oil.

Kheema Cutlets

Once the Cutlets is browned on one side, gently turn it over and let it cook another couple of minutes. The bread in the mixture will make your Cutlets rise – this is a good thing!

Kheema Cutlets Frying

Once they are cooked, remove them from the oil and let them drain on a plate covered with paper towels.

Cutlets on paper

Serve the cutlets hot with roti or bread and some tomato ketchup

Cutlets Pav

To make about 12 cutlets you will need:

1/2 kg Kheema
2 tsp Red chilli and Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
Salt to Taste
3 x Slices of Bread  or 1.5 Brun Bread
1/2 bunch Coriander
2 Chillies chopped
2 Eggs whipped
Rawo
Oil for Frying
