Lagan nu Ishtew


Squash, yam, potato and carrot stew with turmeric, green chillies and jaggery.

The fire-worshipping Zoroastrians arrived on India’s west coast in the 7th century and were quick to adapt to their new home. The use of jaggery, like in this wedding stew, is adopted from their Gujrati hosts’ love for sweet and sour food. This is a rare veggie gem in a mostly meat and fish led diet. It is served with the first course of a five-course Parsi wedding.
