Switzerland Parsis Celebrate New Year And Khordad Saal

The Parsis and Zoroastrians of Switzerland celebrated Khordad Saal at the restaurant, ‘Urban Spice’, in Zurich. From the eldest – Rati Surti Puz and Fali Roowala, to the youngest (Jehaan Shroff – 3 months), the gathering comprised a merry and fun-loving bunch of 70 bawajis living out the celebratory spirit of ‘Parsipanu’ on the auspicious day. Paris families showed up for the event from Ticino, Geneva, St. Gallen, Neuchatel and of course, the Zurich area.

The delicious snacks and lunch was catered by the Antalia family and their team of chefs. Snacks included paani puri, sev puri, mini chicken farchas and kheema bruschetta, followed by a scrumptious buffet lunch of mora daar chaval, khichri and saas ni macchi, tava paneer, Afghani chicken, naans and lots more, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The afternoon ended with our parsi sev, jalebis, and ice-cream.
