Feeling too cold this winter season? It’s time to raise the temperature, not literally but with a delightful dessert. Known to boost the immune system, this lip-smacking sweet is loaded with ghee and lots of dry fruits. This dense and nutty speciality is relished mostly during the winter season as it is believed to keep us warm. The goodness of all the ingredients infused with amazing taste and nutrient-rich sweetness is a must to enjoy in the freezing Christmas.

Is Christmas even celebrated as Christmas if we do not enjoy cakes? For this beautiful festival, relishing yummy cakes is a must. And when it comes to enjoying Parsi sweets on Christmas, you surely need to try Parsi Mawa Cake. Prepared with mawa, milk, eggs, and flour, every piece of this cake is too soft. This amazing confection is one of Parsi culinary traditions’ most significant delicacies and the soft spongy texture is perfect.

4. Ravo

A perfect combination of ghee, rava, milk, and dry fruits; foodies with a sweet tooth love relishing Ravo. Most Parsi occasions and festivals are incomplete without preparing this Parsi version of a basic rava pudding. This traditional creamy pudding is as Parsi as it can get. In addition to all the detectability, the smooth texture simply melts in our mouths.

5. Malido

Taking to the X (formerly Twitter) platform, Hanoz Antia (@AntiaHanoz) shared a picture of yummy Malido.

This traditional pudding is a must to relish during most Parsi religious ceremonies. Loaded with ghee, jaggery, butter, wholewheat flour, and semolina, this quick and easy dessert is loved for its flavours and texture. Often accompanied by Papri bread, the authenticity of the Parsi community is reflected in Malido. Though Malido is not widely popular like other Parsi sweets, it is a quintessential sweet enjoyed by Parsis in most ceremonies and celebrations.
