Kolmi No Patio - Parsi Style Seafood Ragout

Posted by on


Patia refers to a tomatoey, cilantroey, spicy, ragout. And whether the Zoroastrian Persians who immigrated to India between the 8th/10th century brought this dish with them, or it developed in Gujarat where they eventually settled and became "Parsi's" is unknown. What we do know is that this dish is tasty!

Kolmi No Patio - Parsi Style Seafood Ragout


1/4 cup vegetable oil
2.5 cup red onion, diced
6 medium size, ripe, tomatoes, roughly chopped
Lots of fresh cilantro, finely chopped
2 T tamarind (or lime is fine!)
1 jalapeno, cut a few slits in the center
3 garlic cloves
3 Red chillies, 1 Kashmiri Chilli (work with what you’ve got! dont worry about Kashmiri if you don’t have it)
2 Tsp Spicewalla Cumin Seeds
Spicewalla Kashmiri Chilli Powder
½ tsp Spicewalla x Diaspora Turmeric, divided
1/6 c brown sugar
1 lb Shrimp

6. Once onions have browned, add the masala to the pan and fry for a few minutes.
