Navroz, the Parsi New Year, is celebrated just like any other festival in the world - with lots of fun, frenzy and food. 'Nav' in Navroz means 'new' and roz means 'day', so this 'new day' calls for high-spirited celebrations among the Parsi communities, not just in India but other nations as well with influences of the Persian culture. Usually, Navroz is celebrated around the month of August, following the 'Shahenshahi' calendar, which does not account for leap year. Others who do not follow this calendar celebrate Navroz in the month of March. Colourful rangoli, bright lights and grand feast - complete this festival.
Every Navroz spread sees some classics laid out on the table. Sev, a vermicelli-based dessert, Mitthu dahi (sweetened curd), and ravo - a special Parsi-style kheer - are must-haves. For meals, there is a host of options to choose from - Mori Dal, Sali botti (a mutton-based curry), Chicken Farcha and more. While planning a full-fledged spread for Navroz, how can refreshing beverages be not there to welcome the guests. Falooda is a Parsi drink cum dessert that is made with milk, rose syrup, sweet basil seeds and a large scoop of ice cream.
