Parsi Ras Chawal (Spicy Tomato Gravy with Rice)

Posted Feb 07 2011 7:28am
I usually have one meal a week with my family, with me taking a break from making my own meals or ordering takeout. I do ask my mom to either make a vegetarian Parsi dish or to make my portion seperately and then add the meat to their portions later on. This time, its a dish called ras chawal, which would translate to spicy tomato gravy with rice. It's quite unknown compared to other Parsi specialities  and I can't find a single recipe of it online.

We usually add mutton to this dish, or serve it with boiled eggs. But this one's all vegan with just potatoes and drumsticks . You're supposed to suck the flesh inside the drum stick, not eat the chewy fiberous outside. The recipe is a rough gist I got from my mom.

  • 1/2 onion

  • In a pot, dry roast the flour for 5 minutes.
  • Add the finely chopped garlic, chopped onion as well as the spices, along with a dash of water.
  • Add the tomato puree, sugar, and the vinegar to form a sauce. Let it simmer away for 10-15 minutes
  • Peel your potato and cut into approx 4 wedges.
  • Clean your drumstick removing the tough fiberous bark on the outside. Cut into four pieces of equal length.
  • Add the potato wedges and drum sticks to your gravy.
  • Cook on a low heat till the potatoes are done.
  • Serve on a bed of hot white rice, along with a raita/salad consisting of chopped cucumber, red onion, beetroot and coriander salad.
