Many recipes share their food history. Cultures and borders have crossed and intertwined since time immemorial. Unravelling its lineage is often the most fascinating.
While researching the origins of the wonderful comfort food called Irish Stew ( a simple yet hearty meat and potato dish), I happened to stumble across the interesting cross over of a French dish called Blanquettes; the very elegant French comfort food is pretty much the same, yet finished off with a silky egg yolk and cream rather than the rustic flour-butter roux and milk that is more typical of the Irish. Here is my version of the recipe, definitely Parsi Food style!

Mahrukh Behrana Congratulations Nilu! 2 recipes I have used often are Irish Stew and Ras Chawal. The latter reminds me of my mum's. tastes exactly like hers. Thanks.
Perfect Irish stew just like Mamma makes. Thank you.
Tashan introduced me to this lovely recipe after the recent birth of my son. Not only was it healthy but so heartwarming and brought back memories of home made comfort food from Bombay! Best wishes Pashna
