Bheeda Pe Eeda(Eggs On Okra)With Bread
I was born in Mumbai in my maternal grandparents home .Their neighbours were Parsis who gave me a lot of love during my childhood.
The Parsis migrated to India from Persia centuries back and have a fabulous and unique cuisine which blends together a variety of flavours.The spices and various Masalas as well as Lentils,Vegetables and Desserts are cooked in a very tasty but unique recipes.
The Parsis eat a lot of Eggs----in fact they literally eat Eggs by the dozen.This is a popular way of preparing Eggs----teaming these up with Vegetables.My recipe is modified to suit all as Parsi spices are not available everywhere.
Here I would like to say that the Parsis eat Eggs by the dozen yet the average Parsi lives a very active life to a very ripe old age----more often than not they cross into their nineties with all their faculties intact and leading very healthy lives---here I would like to cite premier lawyers like Mr.Nariman and Mr.Sorabjee as examples.
I havealways loved and admired this community which though small has cornered the lion's share in the fabric of Mumbai living.Submitted by: KOMAL53
