Indulge in rich, authentic Parsi cuisine at Cidade de Goa’s Bawa Bounty. In celebration of Jamshed-e-Navroz or Parsi New Year, Cidade de Goa celebrates the nostalgic flavours of Mumbai’s Irani cafés, giving them a makeover with authentic food from Parsi kitchens across India, till August 26, 2018, from 7pm to 11pm.
Parsi cuisine is a melange of different flavours and has an eclectic mix of hot and sweet, sour and spice. This delectable cuisine is deeply influenced by various parts of the country that the community has travelled to and its soul lies in the ingredients used to make the mouth-watering delicacies.
The talented chefs at Café Azul have recreated the delectable Parsi cuisine, using fresh local ingredients. Offering a true gastronomic experience, the starters included Akoori or scrambled eggs Parsi style, along with Marghina Farcha – perfectly spiced crumb and egg coated fried chicken. According to one’s dietary choice, one could choose between the meat lover’s Kheema na Pattice, delicious lamb cutlets or the vegetarian favourite Chutney na Pattice with potato and coriander chutney.
The most popular Parsi delights have been recreated with panache for the main course. The Patrani Machchi – fish with green chutney cooked in a banana leaf; and Salli Marghi – a spicy chicken curry topped with hot and crispy potato straws, were must-haves.
The sweet-sour ladyfingers and rich Laganshala Stew guarantees that vegetarians would go back for seconds. The feast also includes Parsi wedding favourites Brun Pao Maska and other delicious accompaniments.
Another delicacy, Lagan nu Custard, is also part of the dessert menu. Jamva chalo ji!
