The Bombay duck, dhansak at Jamvaa Chalo Ji bring back memories of homey Parsi food
AUTHENTIC TASTES Chef Mazdiyar Surti gets it all right, having grown up in a Parsi family
Growing up with Parsi neighbours I knew about dhansak and Navroze in several forgotten memories I had collected. The ITC Windsor has organised “Jamvaa Chalo Ji”, a Parsi food festival, helmed by Chef Mazdiyar Surti. “I am actually a coffee shop chef but I grew up in a Parsi family and watched my mother and grandmother cooking traditional Parsi food, which is how I know so much about the cuisine and how it is done,” explains Chef Mazzy proving you can never shake off what you have grown up with.
