Jamshedi Navroz is one of the three major Ā festivals celebrated in the Parsi Calendar.The term Navroz is derived from the Persian words Nav meaning New and Roz meaning day hence meaning new day of the year. This day falls on the 21 st of March according to the Gregorian Calendar. Also known as the Persian New year, it is celebrated world over by the Iranians and in Indian subcontinent by the Parsi community with lot of zeal and enthusiasm.

Khavanu, Pivanu, Majja ni life ! Eat, Drink and be merry is the Parsi motto and they follow it by ushering the New year with hearty food and celebrations galore. Ravo, Sev, Patrani Machi, Sali Chicken, Chicken Farcha are few of the dishes which is made on this special day.Besides all these delicacies cooking plain rice and Moong dal and serving Falooda, sweet chilled vermicelli flavored with rose essence is a must on this Navroz day.

The Lagan (wedding)Nu Custard is another iconic šŸ® dessert that Parsis are known for and isĀ served in Parsi weddings and festivals. An irresistible, traditional pudding made with everyday ingredients like milk, eggs and sugar and usually served with loads of nuts. This easy to whip up, rich dessert is also served on this auspicious day of Navroz. This is the first time am trying my hands with Parsi cooking and I dedicate it to my dearest friend Parinaaz Marolia of A dollop of that. A bubbly,cheerful, ever smiling, positive Ā soul who can win anyone’s hearts with her beautiful eyes and smile and a very talented Parsi food blogger.People like her do make this world a better place to stay.

On this auspicious day of Navroz myself and two of my blogger friends Sweta of Oriyarasoi Ā and Parinaaz of A dollop of that have collaborated and made some Parsi delicacies.Do check out the mouthwatering Patra Ni Machi and the delectable Mithu Dahi from their blogs too.
