The Parsis (a community of people following the Zoroastrian religion) migrated from Iran to Gujarat in India between the 8th and 10th centuries. The skill and complexity of their cooking is renowned throughout India with influence from their Persian heritage, the cuisine of Gujarat and Maharashtra where they settled, and even from the British with whom they traded. The Parsis are regular meat eaters, and this dish of spicy mince (keema) topped with fried potatoes (sali) is one of their most famous dishes. It’s served here with a simple squash curry, homemade fenugreek rotis, cabbage salad and a date and chilli chutney.

What a feast, thanks for sharing!


I haven’t had Keema since I was in Mumbai in 2018, so to recreate it at home was incredible. The date chutney was to die for! This is a recipe I will make again and again

It looks like you did a fantastic job recreating this meal! The Fenugreek Rotis look incredible!


A more challenging recipe but we enjoyed cooking together and felt really pleased with the finished result-especially making our own bread from scratch. The lamb curry had the richest flavour whilst the chutney added some spice!
