Salli Jardaloo Keema (Apricot Meat Mince)

Best Blogger Tips
The rains finally arrived, and when they arrived, they really arrived in full fury. It rained the last few days. All rainfall deficit has been wiped out alongwith the roads in many parts of Delhi. They have been a welcome respite from the heat wave. I celebrated the arrival of rains by cooking up a parsi keema dish. Parsi cuisine is a welcome blend of various influences, the most notably being persian, as that is where they came from. What you get in the end is a treasure of dishes that combine sweet with the sour, meat with fruits, and so on.
