Chicken Dhansak (chicken Cooked With Lentils And Vegetables Parsi Style)
I am a fan of colonial and vintage recipes these days. Recipes that are going extinct or unknown. I love experimenting with them these days. Check out my recipe of Dak bungalow chicken here, it was part of my experiment to learn these vintage recipes. Parsis community has shown their strength and presence from times immemorial their cooking is heavily influenced by Persian ways. Dhansak is the most popular recipe in Parsi cuisine. I love it with mutton mostly though chicken version is not bad either. I would describe this dish as a potpourri of ingredients with meat, squashes, lentils and spices. It has a lot of protein. The vegetarian version is just the same minus adding chicken.
