Celebration and food go hand in hand. We can’t imagine any celebration without food. Every religion has their own way of celebrating festivals, be it small or big. Parsis celebrate Navroz, which is their way of welcoming spring or celebrating New Year according to parsi calender.
Globally, they celebrate their new year on 21stmarch, but in india it is little different as they celebrate their Navroz in july/aug because this was the time when their ancestors came to India. Mohit Balachandran was sharing an interesting fact that parsis, while having their meal, should have view of their “bed”, so that they can retire immediately for their nap after finishing their meal. Well, we all would love to do the same!
According to Chef Anahita, “The Patra Ni macchi is a traditional parsi dish that is cooked on the New year day, other than that there is Pulav, Dal, Maghi na Farcha and Ravo and sev”.
