" Your book arrived yesterday. Wow! Very well written, beautiful pictures, and impressive content. I especially liked your introduction, which is such a fund of information. Dhansak is a family favourite, but being a vegetarian I have so far not been able to enjoy it. So am delighted that you added a veg version. Will try it soon. I like the egg recipes and my hubby also saw a recipe that he would like to try out. The mulligatawny as you write, is nothing but pepper water (mulagai=pepper and Thani= water), or rasam as we call it. But the similarity ends there. Rasam is very watery and rarely has vegetables except for tomato. Congratulations on a very good book. You can truly be proud of it. "

From a face book post......

πŸ‘ kudos Niloufer Mavalvala for feeding a million mouths with mouthwatering dishes ❤️


The Zoom classes have taken on a whole new journey. 
From cooking with vegetables to teaching Parsi cookery to people interested in its history and setting up their own small home businesses - many to help themselves financially through the hard times covid has brought upon each one. 

I am proud to say at least 8 or more people have sucessfully started or added upon their own kitchens. Some have just become better home cooks sharing authentic Parsi food flavours with their family and friends. 

Here are some of the reviews I share.

It was an honor and a pleasure to connect with Niloufer and observe her while she made various Parsi delicacies. Niloufer is a wonderful person with a big heart, I truly appreciate her generosity for sharing the recipes, valuable information and her culinary knowledge with me. She demonstrates a lot of patience and takes the time to answer questions, she makes it a point to explain each cooking step in detail. It was indeed an amazing experience to learn from Niloufer. Thank you for teaching this very novice cook the initial skills to get excited and have confidence in making this culinary journey.

Hi Niloufer, 

I am an Indian Zoroastrian and come from a  family of good cooks.

I had the privilege to visit Karachi when I was nine and twenty-one and realised that the food cooked there was a little different from ours, but tasted wonderful.  Luckily for me, I came upon the Parsis Exchange Recipes page  on Facebook one day and came across Niloufer.  I had memories of her being an excellent cook and so, was very excited to order her cookbooks and start trying her recipes.

The recipes from both the books made me realise that there is a whole world of treasures out there and there is so much to learn...and that is why I joined her classes on Zoom.  These classes have made me realise that direct learning from her, with the small, but invaluable chef's tips that she gives, and the patience with which she answers queries; have made me braver.

I am more confident of trying out the more complicated of her recipes, trying my hand at pickles and bhakras and chutneys...and as I hopefully intend to start a small home setup of my own next year,  I know that she and her classes will be a source of inspiration, confidence, practice and learning that will make me a better cook with every step.

Thank you so much Niloufer, kudos!

Parsi Cooking

As is amply shown by your sustained efforts in teaching Parsi Cooking and cultural heritage, there  is value to nurturing “Intellectual Entrepreneurship”  

These investments in polishing the minds of individuals with skill sets that can be applied in daily living can multiply manifold in promoting  “economic entrepreneurship”.

 In the true spirit of “the caretaker”,
the genesis of the modern day meaning of
the word “entrepreneur”, let’s keep the good news coming.

Hi Niloufer,

As you know I learnt cooking very late and I was never so keen to go to the kitchen and prepare meals. I enjoyed delicious food cooked by my mom for so many years and she is back home and I miss those yummy meals. Secondly I have 2 beautiful kids and I would love them to enjoy our delicious Parsi cuisine like we did and still do now. All this motivated me to join your classes and take a step to get myself into the kitchen πŸ˜ƒ

Before joining your classes I knew how to cook curry chawal, Dhan Dar Patio and different vegetable dishes with standard masala :) 

I am a visual person and love attending your zoom classes. I have prepared some dishes which I have never cooked before in my life like Murghi Na Farcha,  Bheeda Ma Gosh,  Machi Na Sufade Curry, Leelu Balchao, Kesari Murghi, Bhajj Jhinga, Keri Kanda, Papayta Jhinga, Machi No Rus etc.

Firstly, I would like to cook more dishes and practice at my home to gain more expertise and comfort with cooking and then why not start a small business by selling our traditional pickles, bhakra, batasa, daar ni pori and such stuff. 

I would happily recommend you and your classes to my friends especially outside our community so they can also taste and enjoy our Parsi dishes. I look forward to attending your classes in June 2021. 

You have started a very good project which motivates people like me to go to our kitchens and explore new dishes and enjoy with the family. 

I wish you all the very best and thanks a million for doing such amazing work especially in this difficult time during Covid. 

God bless you and your family always πŸ’ž

Lots of love,

Hi Niloufer, 

It's been a pleasure to attend your cooking demonstration/classes through the pandemic.  I feel encouraged to prepare & share with friends & family some authentic Parsi pickles & preserves in addition to the daily Parsi dishes. Baffenu, Batasas, Bhakras, jams & chutneys from my kitchen have been relished & made it to my gift hampers for Christmas & Navroze during 2020 & 2021. 

While I am not selling my wares, now I make & bake at home, save money & eat healthy. 

What's great about joining & learning with Nilu is that any time I have a question on a recipe, she's only a text message away.  I encourage all  to help keep our Parsi Cuisine alive - purchase Nilufer's recipe books for yourselves & as gifts.

Thanks Nilu for sharing your talent, recipes & time.

Hello, so first of all Thankyou so much for sponsoring me. I’m so lucky to be a part of these classes and learn from a Master chef like you, Niloufer.  
These classes were so good and well explained. Sharing your tips  and answering all our queries.

 These classes have been beneficial to me since I am a self taught home based baker. Many people have told me to add some Parsi delicacies and it is  because of you, Niloufer that I tried bhakras for the first time in life. 
I always used to think it would be difficult to make but when I made it the way you explained, they turned out perfect!! I have started selling them and everyone is loving it. The response I got was amazing. It’s all because of these classes that I gained confidence that nothing is difficult. She has certainly simplified our lives. 

No one ever seems to be teaching anyone the typical Parsi dishes and just the recipe doesn’t always help. We need visual demos to learn. I always used to think about trying out our Parsi cuisine but didn’t know where to start off. Thank you Niloufer for sharing your recipes and experience. Simply listening to you explain the basics and advanced methods is what I found most helpful here. This idea of zoom classes is awesome. I would love to be a part of further classes also if possible. Thanks a lot once again. May God bless you.

Hi Niloufer

Thank you! That was really fun.  I learned lots of little tricks of the trade from you.

I love the way you scrape each bowl and beater.  Just like my mother taught me!  Don't waste anything!

Hi Niloufer, 

    My cousin from New Jersey was also at the Zoom demo for Dar Ni Pori today.
This is the first time I have seen it made & just wanted to let you know it was a very efficient Demonstration.
    I have been thinking about a name for the paste Masala Book you want to write about on someone’s suggestion.
    Hope you saw the Zoroastrian Celebration Zoom broadcast by ZOAM the Michigan Zoroastrian Association just now. We are indeed a very small but very talented community.

    Congratulations πŸŽ‰ on your book being chosen & recognized. I am very happy for you. You, Niloufer work very hard & deserve the credit you have received. 
    Also that you are so enthusiastic about spreading Zoroastrian Cuisine around the world for our younger generation who have not lived on the Asian Continent so marvelous of you & that too all for gratis. We are grateful to you for your ability & skill to teach us & surely as you know the bond grows between all of us.
I am not a person to use flattery where it is undeserved. You deserve every bit of it, our support & love.
Zarine Kapadia.

October 2019

The Cook's Cook was fascinated by the Daar ni Pori in my new cookbook and has published an article on this delicacy in their magazine this month. 

Finally have something from the Parsi food repertoire in a mainstream magazine. Delicious UK - issue October 2019 has included a story and recipe shared in their Tastes Like Home section on page 76. It has been an exciting wait to be included in #1 food magazine. Well worth it I hope.

My cookery luncheon was video taped by my young friend Tanya Hoshi and shared with much appreciation.

Zu Bha Niloufer Mavalvala: Thanks for the shout out, but I did nothing.Bombay Street Food is absolutely wonderful. Amreen, Seema, Chef Don and their team of dedicated staff is what makes it a great venue to host all sorts of events from book launches to Saturday morning yoga/zumba. Give it time, and I truly believe BSF will become a cultural hub in the city booked with daily events. 

Also, thank you for writing this book. I sent one to my cousin in California and plan to try out a few recipes too. If there's one thing I love about my roots, it's the food. Can't thank you enough for taking the time to create this and sharing all these gems with the next generation of foodies

Niloufer M, thank you for this most wonderful recipe, your pear tart turned out rich and cinnamony, with the right balance of flavours. I paired it with some finger lime flavoured whipped cream.

Hi Niloufer,

Thank you very much for the superb Gharab nu Achar. We tasted it this evening with our dinner and we all loved it. It had the authentic flavour that I remember having as a child when Jhinga nu Achar and Gharab nu Achar were commonly had with mora daar-chaawal.

Thanks to Niloufer Mavalvala we had a great Moroccan dinner. Celebrating Maria Westaway's birthday. Niloufer it was all from your book. The fennel and pomegranate salad, the shrimps in the marinade, the chicken tagine and the couscous.
