Gujarati staple diet with bori muslims and parsi food

  2. 2. Gujarati Food The traditional Gujarati food is primarily vegetarian and has a high nutritional value. The typical Gujarati thali consists of varied kinds of lip smacking dishes. Gujarati cuisine has so much to offer and each dish has an absolutely different cooking style. Some of the dishes are stir fry, while others are boiled. Gujarati food is more often served on a silver platter. Gujaratis use a combination of different spices and flavours to cook their meals and this is what makes their food truly exotic. Gujarati cuisine differs from season to season depending on the availability of vegetables. People in the urban areas are starting some new eating trends. In the summer season, spices such as black pepper and its constituent spices are used in lesser quantities. People fast on a regular basis and limit their diet to milk, nuts and dried fruits.

  5. 5. PARSI STAPLE FOOD Parsi Cuisine refers to the traditional cuisine of the Parsis of India. The basic feature of a Parsi lunch is rice, eaten with lentils or a curry. Curry is made with coconut and ras without, with curry usually being thicker than ras. Dinner would be a meat dish, often accompanied by potatoes or other vegetable curry. Kachumbar (a sharp onion- cucumber salad) accompanies most meals. Also popular among Parsis, but less so elsewhere, are the typical Parsi eeda (egg) dishes, which include akuri (scrambled eggs with spices) and the pora ("Parsi" omelette). Also, main dishes (such as those listed above) are often served with an egg on top. Traditional breakfasts during the 1930s in Mumbai or in many South Gujarat villages consisted of khurchan (offal meats cooked with potatoes in a spicy gravy), and some variant of the ubiquitous deep- fried, fried or half-fried eggs. In agrarian communities this would be washed down by copious quantities of coconut toddy, often straight off the tree.

Popular Parsi dishes • Chicken farcha (fried chicken) • Patra ni machhi (steamed fish wrapped in banana leaf) • Dhansak (lamb, mutton, goat or chicken and/or vegetables in lentil and/or toor daal gravy) • Sali murghi (spicy chicken with fine fried matchstick potatoes) • Jinga no patio (shrimp in spicy tomato curry) • Khichri (rice with toor daal and/or moong daal) • Saas ni machhi (yellow rice with pomfret fish fillets in white sauce) • Jardaloo sali boti (boneless mutton in an onion and tomato sauce with apricots and fried matchstick potatoes) • Tamota ni russ chaval (mutton cutlets with white rice and tomato sauce)
  7. 7. • Common desserts include sev (vermicelli), ravo (semolina) and Malido. Also popular are faluda and kulfi, both of which are adoptions from the cuisines of the Irani and Urdu-speaking communities. Wedding feasts traditionally include lagan nu custard. • Popular parsi snacks include bhakhra (deep fried sweet dough) batasa (flour and butter tea biscuits) dar ni pori (sweetened lentils stuffed in a light pastry) and khaman na ladva (dumplings stuffed with sweetened coconut).
  8. 8. BOHRI MUSLIMS FOOD Every Bohra house around the world gets food from a local community centre, called Faize Mawaid-e-Burhani. This community centre caters for all three meals every day of the week except Sundays. There is no price tag on the food, so families pay whatever they can afford. There are no receipts and no records of payments are maintained. Most well-to-do people make generous donations to keep the centre running and ladies volunteer to make chapattis at the centre. The idea is to provide quality food to all members of the community, irrespective of whether they can afford it or not. A Bohra meal begins by passing the salt. And it is only after each partaker seated around a big platter has tasted it that the first course is served. Bohra Muslims, who are said to have migrated originally from Yemen to Gujarat, are firm believers in the maxim: “The family that eats together, stays together.”
