Parsi Dhansak recipe | how to make Parsi style veg dhansak with detailed photos and video recipe: –  Authentic Parsi style dhansak recipe goes best with Parsi brown rice. The original Parsi community was a meat eater but by the times they move to the region, the recipes have got somewhat the Indian region touch. Dhansak is originally a meat dish. I am vegetarian so I can not include meat in my meals.I am sharing a vegetarian version of traditional parsi dhansak which is totally inspired by master chef Sanjeev Kapoor. dhansak-priyascurrynation

Parsi Dhansak recipe | how to make Parsi style veg dhansak with detailed photos and video recipe: –Dhansak is a popular Indian dish, originating among the Parsi Zoroastrian community.It combines elements of Persian and Gujarati cuisine. As I have told, Dhansak is made by cooking mutton or goat meat with a mixture of lentils and vegetables. This is served with caramelised brown rice, which is rice cooked in caramel water to give it a typical taste and color. The dal cooked with mutton and vegetables served with brown rice altogether is called dhansak. I have already share Parsi brown rice recipe HERE.dhansak-priyascurrynation

The technique of cooking expensive ingredient (meat) by combining it with vegetables and/or lentils in the same recipe is widely employed in Persian cooking.The Gujarati element of the recipe is the liberal use of a variety of Indian spices and condiments, in contrast to the more mellow Iranian recipes.

In Parsi homes, dhansak is traditionally made on Sundays owing to the long preparation time required to cook the lentils and vegetables into a mush, (in the days before pressure cooking was employed).

Dhansak is also always had on the fourth day after the death of a near one. There is no meat consumed for three days after the death of a near one. And dhansak is used to break this abstinence on the fourth day.

All the regular ingredients are used to prepare this recipe. This recipe is very light and one-in-all super comfy meal I found after my gujju dal dhokli.
