Lagan Nu Custard

Originally, the Parsis were meat eaters, who prepared a lot of rich and heavy dishes. However, over the years they blended their culinary skills with those of the regional people thus giving rise to a blend of Persian and Indian cuisine. Today Parsi food is a delicious blend of western influences, a Gujarat love for sweet and sour mixtures and the Persian genius for combining meat with dried fruits such as apricots. After coming to Gujarat, they adopted a lot of Gujarati food and became pulse and cereal eaters. As they shifted towards Maharashtra, they adapted the Maharashtrian dishes.
Parsis prefer non-vegetarian dishes mainly consisting of fish, meat and chicken though they also have a large repertoire of vegetarian preparations.
