1 Bhicoo J. Manekshaw
Parsi Food and Customs: The Essential Parsi Cookbook
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 1996; 0140257594 / 9780140257595; First Edition; Paperback; New; Bindia Thapar 
A treasure-house of recipes and customs that define the Parsi way of life Celebrations, rituals and food inevitably go together. And so it is with the Parsis. From Navroz, the dawn of the Parsi New Year, to Navjote, the initiation ceremony of a young child, lagan or marriage, jashans and ghambhars, there is a variety of food to suit every occasion. In this unique book, Bhicoo J. Manekshaw takes the reader on a journey far beyond the traditional stereotypical dhan sakh recipe. For those who love fish, there is a choice of patrani machchi (fish in banana leaves), masala ni machchi or the famed tarapori patio made with sookha boomla (Bombay duck), amongst many others. The Parsi weakness for eggs, on the other hand, has created a range of mouth-watering dishes from the kera per eeda (eggs cooked on bananas) to the humble scrambled egg. There are also teatime snacks, sweets, and desserts and a chapter on kitchen medicine straight from grandmotherís recipe book. Interlaced with the recipes is the authorís piquant description of the customs, rituals and ceremonies that form the Parsi way of life. Printed Pages: 240. 032936
