What is Sasuji Nu Jheenjo?
Sasuji Nu Jheenjo is a popular dish mostly cooked in Parsi households. Originally from Iran, Sasuji Nu Jheenjo is a flavoursome amalgamation of spices, vegetables and herbs. The spices are ground fresh, giving it the much-needed flavour and essence of typical Parsi culture.
The prawns are cooked with onions, tomatoes, and beans and sauteed with ingredients like cumin powder and ginger/garlic paste. Both prawns and beans bind well together, offering this dish a remarkable taste. It is served with raita and well-cooked coconut-flavoured rice. One can also have it with bread or naan.
