Parsi Food Trail: February

When the Zoroastrians fled Persia and came to Indian shores, they approached King Jadhav Rana seeking asylum. Unconvinced at first, Rana called out for a vessel of milk filled to the brim to symbolise his already abundant kingdom. A Parsi priest then dissolved some sugar into the milk without causing it to overflow, signifying that they would blend in and merely add some sweetness.

While this story can hardly be authenticated, here’s what can. Udvada a coastal town 200-odd kilometres north of Mumbai, Udvada’s main draw is its Iran Shah Atash Behram, which bears the sacred fire that has been burning for over a thousand years. Of course, it’s also a worthy food pilgrimage.

It is the perfect place to sample both popular Parsi dishes and homely favorites, and the meals are still mostly cooked on a chulavati, a wood-fuelled hearth.

Come be a part of the beautiful trail to the distant down of Udvada (190 kms from Mumbai) and enjoy the wholesome experience along with their hospitality.
