A delicate and fresh Parsi dish, which creates a light sauce that's perfect for summer evenings. Adding mint sauce, fresh mint and tangy lemon juice really help to make this dish sing.
Origin: The Parsis have a Persian background so herbs are widely used throughout their cuisine. This dish is often cooked for an auspicious event and served with yellow rice and a lentil (dhal) dish.
Try it with firm white fish and/or prawns. It's also delicious with new potatoes and greens.
Serves: 4 – 6
Shelf life & storage: The mix will last for up to 4 weeks in a fridge and for six months in a freezer. Once cooked the food will last for 2 days in a fridge and up to one month in a freezer.
I get very poetic about the Patia, but it’s just so darn tasty! If you don’t put prawns in it, you’re missing out, as the flavours in the sauce and the shellfish complement each other perfectly. Don’t worry about buying a kilo of ingredients- make a saucy half-size curry and it will still serve at least 3.Tim
