About Peri’s Spice Ladle

Three things inspire my life: Family & Friends. Food. Travel.  

Peri's Spice Ladle, Indian-inspired Food for the Global Palate Peri’s Spice Ladle is born out of a passion for exploring food, especially the flavors of my native Indian and Parsi cuisines.

Making Indian food at home tends to look complicated; though most will happily devour popular classics at Indian restaurants around the world, the fear of ethnic ingredients and specific techniques often keeps non-Indians from trying their hand at much-loved Indian favorites in their own kitchen.

A cuisine that’s as old as the earliest civilizations; homemade Indian meal habits can be healthful, delicious and rather addictive.

Aided by my years of experience in the food industry, my Parsi family background and extensive travel, I like experimenting with the versatility of India’s smorgasbord of regional flavors, to create recipes with a more global appeal and a healthy touch; something any home cook, in any part of the world can put together with simple ingredients and basic spices from their pantry. 

In Indian kitchens around the globe, food trends are rapidly changing. Ancient family recipes are being revamped and simplified by busy working moms and dads to create modern Indian meals; while international chefs are getting adventurous with India’s classics, presenting dishes that taste fresh on the palate.

It’s easy to ‘spice-up’ just about any meal with a few Indian touches.

Meet Peri:

Peri's Spice Ladle, Indian-inspired Food for the Global Palate I’m a proud Parsi native of cosmopolitan Mumbai in western India. A culturally diverse city with a population of 19 million, Mumbai is a bustling foodie paradise filled with international and local cuisine choices, coupled with its well-earned reputation for a wide variety of street foods.

Growing up, Mum’s home-cooked delicious Parsi food with its historic influences and stunning flavors set the stage for my love of food.

While Parsi-style Indian food was the norm at home, Dad had just one food rule (who am I kidding, he had many rules but we liked this one) ‘When we travel around the world, we must sample the local cuisine offerings of that city.’ My sisters and I carry that sentiment true to this day.

Ten years in the hospitality industry working for the Taj Group, one of the finest luxury hotel chains in India, gave me the opportunity to gain valuable professional food and beverage experience.

Now living in America with my husband and two kids, for the past decade we’ve been promoting our versatile cuisine to friends and community through exposure to Indian-inspired dishes. Contact me for well-written articles, unique Indian-inspired recipe creations, and guest blog posts at peri.avari@perisspiceladle.com.

From vegan to vegetarian, gluten-free to dairy-free and meaty kebabs to meatless Mondays; if you’re looking for newer and healthier food choices to match your lifestyle: the answer lies in Indian food.

    Thanks so much for discovering my blog…it has led me to you and your lovely blog. I love Indian cuisine. Years ago, I took Indian cooking lessons from an Indian woman in her home. As you said, it is time consuming but worth every all the effort. So glad to meet you Peri! :-)

    • says

      So glad to meet you too:) How wonderful that you have learnt some Indian cooking, hands-on is the best way to figure out the nuances of a cuisine…hope you discover some favorites here, my recipes stick with easily available ingredients and simple instructions.

      • TU says

        Hello from a fellow Parsi. I have searched in vain for a recipe for a RTI-style Chicken patties, You know, the round pastry puff filled with that fabulous chicken mixture. Do you have a recipe for this?

        • says

          Hello and hearty welcome to a fellow Parsi:) great to have you here. My site doesn’t have a recipe for those delicious chicken puff patties (so yum!) I do know how to make them though- so here’s a verbal recipe, no measurements. Cook chicken in basic white sauce of flour butter and chicken stock in place of milk, with green chilies and spices. Add the thick chicken mix to a puff pastry base (store bought should be fine) and bake. A great site for Parsi recipes is Parsicuisine.com. They have most of the classics:) Thanks…

          • says

            My God, I wasn’t expecting an answer and that too so soon. Thank you so very much. All good wishes to you. It’s a beautiful website, by the way. Very inspiring and very professionally done. And thank you again for the recipe.

  5. says

    Hey, my family is having a party in about two weeks, and we are trying to make Parsi food as the theme! We already have the entrees covered. I’m planning on using Sali Boti recipe, and making patra ni machi and vegetarian Dhansak. Given your expertise, I was wondering if you had any ideas on Parsi themed appetizers and desserts that I could make? I would love to have your suggestions!

    Thanks,

    Rahul (CookingFever)

    • says

      Hi Rahul, what a fun party! Perfect way to make an Indian meal interesting is introduce a special cuisine theme:) the menu sounds perfect. Hope you like the Jardaloo salli boti, I’ve been getting emails with great feedback on tryouts. Shrimp kebabs or kheemo (Parsi style ground meat) mini puffs or potato or egg patties are ideas for Parsi type appetizers. Two resources for recipes to check out are:

      The website Parsicuisine.com

      And the PDF book link on Parsi food in recipes the good reads section in the footer of my site.

      Have a fun party and ask away if something else comes to mind:)

  6. says

    thanks for liking my yoghurt recipe, you are just what I needed, I have recently purchased lots of lentils and was looking for some help, I really want to get better at healthy Indian food – I will definitely try some of your recipes and will comment when I do.

  7. says

    thank you so much for liking one of my posts (roasted red pepper and carrot dill soup)!

    i will be posting many recipes over the (main) course of a year so feel free to follow me. :-)

  8. says

    What a great background. I love the 3 things that motivate you as they are the same about which I am passionate. As a lover of Indian food your blog makes me hungry just scrolling around. I will have to try some of these recipes, although I must admit, I think of Indian food as quite intimidating to try to make myself.

    • says

      Thanks for visiting! Love the posts and sights on your site too! Indian food can sound intimidating at first…all the recipes I create here use ingredients easily available at regular grocery stores in most western countries…kinda makes it less intimidating to use everyday ingredients to create simple Indian favorites:) Hope you get to try one of the recipes:)

  9. says

    Hi Peri,

    I didn’t have a chance to look at your new website, but now i know what i missed. SImply love the food and feel of it (green is my favorite colour btw). I have always been a great fan of Parsi food and your website serves just that. Love the recipes…

    Congrats once again on the site and please do keep up the good work.

    • says

      Hi Elson, Thanks for the wonderful comments…thrilled to hear the feedback on my new site:) And yes, there’s many more favorite Parsi specials coming your way in the future:) Thanks for reading…and for your wishes!

  10. Jeff says

    Excellent brussel sprouts recipe!
    FYI – there is an Indian themed popcorn call Cobra Corn that you may enjoy

  11. says

    I am so delighted that you liked my KFC in India, so that now I have found your great blog. I haven’t had time to look at all the recipes, but I am wanting to make all sorts of gobi recipes when I get back to the US…the easier the better. Also I love puri…and I think it is manna …made from chick peas.

    • says

      You’ve got a wonderful site and I enjoyed it immensely, definitely plan to get back there:) Glad you enjoy Indian food flavors. We have a ‘pav bhaji’ version here which uses gobi and many other vegetables of choice, it’s super easy too…and yes, channa (chickpeas) masala and puri (also called bhatura, which look like bigger puris) are my absolute favorite combination:)

    • says

      Namaste Linda, any friend of Indian food is a friend of mine:) hope you like some of the recipes here, I do try to simplify the recipes and directions to make it globally accessible! Thanks for your kind comments.

  12. says

    Thanks for coming by my blog and liking my vegetable chili post. Indian food is my favorite, but I’ve never tried to actually cook it. Perhaps your blog will give me the courage. :-)

  13. says

    I absolutely adore Indian food and think I am going to be spending some time navigating this site! I try to cook an Indian meal most weekends as the whole family love it and with all the sundries makes a great meal an epic occasion.

    • says

      So true…the sundries are almost as important in an Indian meal as the main dish:) So happy that you use Indian food often. We try to keep our recipes here very accessible and easy to bring together! Hope you find some favorites…Thanks for visiting:)

  14. says

    Happy New Year Peri, hope you’re well :) Only just started catching up on things after being away for so long but thank you so much for the Blog On Fire Award, I’ve posted my response today.
    Look forward to catching up on your blog, all the best, Liz

    • says

      Happy New Year, Liz…lovely to hear from you! I’m pretty slow on award accepting myself, so no worries there. Most times, these awards are just a great way to let someone know that you like their blog. Look forward to seeing more of your great work!

  15. says

    Another award nod for your well-deserving blog, Peri ~ the Illuminating Blogger Award: http://travelgardeneat.com/2012/12/29/year-end-statistics-award-trivia-and-more-this-is-what-happens-when-a-cold-bug-plants-a-blogger-at-the-computer-for-the-day/ ~ no obligation to respond or accept, just know your blog illuminates and makes the blogosphere a richer place! Cheers! ~ Kat (P.S. We enjoyed a fabulous meal at Tamarind in NYC — perhaps a future blog post!)

    • says

      Thank you so much, Kat and congratulations on yours:) I completely intend to get around to my awards log in 2013…it’s a NY resolution!

      Hope that bug gets out of your way soon…it’s a terrible feeling which we can all sympathize with! Get well soon!

      So happy you tried Tamarind, now it is definitely on my list of NY Indian places…

    • says

      Always thrilled to hear that comment…you will find some simple to make Indian recipes here with easy to find ingredients.

      I have two site recommendations for Gujarati food…one is Authentic Vegetarian Recipes http://www.givemesomespice.com/ (she also runs a Facebook group called Vegetarians R Us which has more Gujarati and Indian vegetarian recipes posted daily) and the other site is Gujarati Food Made Easy http://gujaratifoodmadeeasy.com/…Both are amazing sites with some very authentic home cooked food.

      Hope this helps!

  16. says

    Thanks for liking my salad post today Peri. I visited India – including Mumbai – in the early ’90s and have very fond memories of the food (and a lot of other good memories too of course). Just reading the titles on you blog is making me hungry… will definitely be trying out a few of these.T

  17. says

    So glad you found me at pleasepasstherecipe. After 3 trips to India, it has found a place in my heart and in my kitchen! I love what I have read on your blog so far and look forward to dipping deeper.

    • says

      Wonderful to hear from you, hope you enjoywd India…yes, Indian food can grow on you, especially once you get a hang of what works with the spices. Thanks for your kind comments, look forward to seeing you around… And exploring your site too:)

    • says

      Congratulations on your well deserved award, Kat! and thank you, that’s so sweet…I always feel appreciated when a fellow blogger like you nominates me! I will get around to a re-post someday…Peri.

  18. says

    Hi Peri, you have a really great space here! Thank you for stopping by my blog, it was super encouraging to get that notification. I have impulsively begun blogging and support from veterans like you tells me I need to rise up to your standards asap!

  19. says

    hai Perinaz…

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog….Your blog is just awesome…. great work, I may require your help many a times, as i`m new here…..
    happy that I could find you….

    Jeny

      • jenyjohn says

        thanks Peri for the support….can i ask you one thing….. how did u find me … I mean there might be new people like me daily, so how do u get them? i`m learning into blogging…hope u don’t mind me asking you this question…

        • says

          Hi Jeny, not at all, ask away….I found you through the WordPress reader which I browse through sometimes (its on your main home page.) Follow tags and topic similar to yours and of interest to you. Visit and read…it increases your knowledge and gets you in touch with some amazing bloggers out there! And my personal advice – great posts and honest engagement! If you really like something, only then ‘like’ it or comment on it. Hope this helps get started:) Good luck!

  20. says

    Hi Peri,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I look forward to trying some of your dishes when my big guys are staying at their father’s place. My partner and I love curries but my middle son is so intolerant to so many things that our family meals are rather bland and we like to lash out when he’s not around…even the smells of spices can cause a reaction in him :o(

    Schana

    • Peri's Spice Ladle says

      Thanks for the dropping by…sad to hear about about your son’s intolerance to spices, that must be a difficult balance to strike! I hope you and your partner enjoy some of the dishes here. I try to make homemade Indian food a reality for anyone who loves the flavors:)

  21. says

    peri, how delighted i am to find your beautiful and heart-full blog. i LOVE indian food, i love being connected to a writer in mumbai. thank you so so much for coming to visit “pull up a chair.” i shall be back again and again. have a lovely day.
    barbara

    • says

      Barbara, how wonderful to hear that you love Indian food…any friend of ‘Indian food’ is a friend of mine:) Hope you enjoy poking around the website and finding favorites…Yes, I spent much of my life in dear Mumbai; will always be a ‘Bombay girl’ though I’m in the US now. I was intrigued by ‘pull up a chair’, its great writing…will be there often:) Have a wonderful day, Peri.

  22. says

    I’m interested to read your overview of Mumbia. Whilst I’m not in love with big cities I seldom feel “unsafe” when in London (even though I was once mugged there and in hospital for a week). What would you say is the main reason why theft is such a big problem in your city?
    I have to admit I am only slowly coming around to Indian food, although I could eat Naan bread, and poppadoms indefinitely.

    • says

      So sorry to hear about the mugging, that must have been terrible! I feel the safest in big cities, especially Mumbai (called Bombay in the years gone by) where I grew up:) Just one of those things, I like the pace of life there and in any big city! Reason for high theft? Put about 20 million people in an approx 230 sq mile city…theft and a lot worse is sadly a given. Thanks for visiting…

  23. says

    You have very good space here. I love the fusion of Indian cuisine with others. Really appreciate the way you are promoting indian cuisine. Thanks for sharing. Will try out some dish from your blog. they all look great!

  24. says

    Peri, thank you for stopping and liking a recent post. I look forward to gaining some insight into the preparation of Indian food from you and tapping into the many other blogs that are networked to you.

    Take care,

    Ivon

    I would like to nominate you for the Super Sweet Blogging Award. Check out my blog for further details and to accept the award. If you do not want the award, please let me know. Congratulations!

    • says

      Congratulations on your award…Thanks for nominating Peri’s Spice Ladle, such a pleasure to be recognized by a fellow blogger. I will be happy to accept it but couldn’t find the award post on your site for the rules and award, it will help if you can paste a link here:) I’m running terribly behind on accepting my awards right now but will certainly get down to them:)

      • says

        I’m sorry, I hadn’t posted the blog as yet when I notified you. I must have missed telling you that. I’ve been having problems with my computer. It’s hanging constantly with the Unresponsive Script message and driving me nuts. My post is up now. Just click on my name and it will take you to my blog. I was running behind on my awards too. Seems to be going around ; – ) If you have any further problems with it, let me know and I will help.

    • says

      Thanks! Any friend of Indian food is a friend of mine:) Hope you like the flavors in these recipes: there are some fun pulaos, daals and curries…as well as interesting twists using Indian flavors like the Bulgur and Couscous:)

  26. says

    Thanks for visiting my blog. You have so many lovely recipes here. We have many Indian restaurants within a few minutes away fortunately as well as 2 Indian spice shops just across the road, so we are spoilt for choice. I may even be tempted to try one of your recipes myself they look so yummy.

    • says

      Wow, you are super lucky to be that close to Indian restaurants and spice shops…that’s a treat:) I have to drive 30 minutes to get to either:) The recipes here at Peri’s Spice Ladle are all simple and we try to use easy Indian spices and regular ingredients from the pantry…the simple pulaos and 5-step chicken curry are a great place to start!

      You have a great site with interesting recipes and pieces…

    • says

      Congratulations on your awards, very well deserved…I enjoy your recipes and posts on Spontaneous Tomato! Thank you for the nomination, its a great feeling to be recognized by a fellow blogger!

  27. says

    I’m glad you liked my blog “Beautiful Blog Award.” I hope you can stop by soon and check out my blog and hopefully try some of the recipes!

    • says

      Thanks for visiting…yes, I did check out your site and that’s how I ran into your award post…love that you have so many chicken recipes on it using breasts, those are the toughest to find! BTW, I just voted for more healthy recipes on your poll:)

      • says

        Everything I cook for us is healthy – and most of the time I fly by the seat of my pants! Whenever we have company over, that’s when I make all the other stuff that I am trying to get posted up. Tasty stuff…just not necessarily always healthy. :-(

    • says

      Liked the ham and mushroom version of pot pie! Anything with ham is an instant draw for me…

      Thanks for visiting, you are in the right place if new to Indian favors…my aim is to make it easy to bring simple Indian flavors into a meal… using stuff right out of your pantry/fridge:)

  28. says

    Thanks for the like on my post on “The Legion of Door Whores”. Much appreciated!

    Do stop by our main blog BollyChees in Paris for more of our photos and musings of life, food & wine as well as travel :)

  29. says

    Hi again dear…thanks for your recent like! Just to let you know that I am still using your veggie recipe as the basis for my daily subji…the fennel gives it a particularly lovely flavor and think it also helps me digest my potatoes and cauliflower more easily. Looking forward to more inspiration…..
    with love light and JOY

    • says

      My dear Jane, wonderful to hear from you and even happier that the fennel in the sabji helps out:) hope your arthritis pain is under control now, you will soon be back in India!

      I’ve been enjoying reading your blog in the past weeks and also want to thank you for putting me onto the gratitude challenge! What a wonderful idea and a connection with so many amazing people (love Nicole’s extra challenges)…I’m also a follower of cauldrons and cupcakes now:)

      Been traveling for the past few weeks, but your deep dish cookie recipe is printed and ready to be tried now that I’m back home:)

      Much love, Peri.

      • says

        Hi Peri…so glad you joined the gratitude challenge and that you’ve found Nicole as well. I find her an amazing inspiration. Let me know how the cookies turn out!!
        with love light JOY and gratitude :-)

      • says

        Hi Jane, Just wanted to let you know that I tried the amazing cookie pie recipe that you shared with me…and what can I say! it was finger licking goodness:) My husband and I wiped out half the pie dish in one sitting! Cant believe it is this healthy and this delicious! What an awesome idea to use garbanzo beans and dates! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe:) I’m keeping this one close to me for days when a sweet craving strikes:) With love, Peri.

    My wife is a Brit (she also owns and runs a B&B) and is addicted to Indian and you can be sure she will be on your blog, often! I enjoy “Indian Fusion” especially to India’s southeastern area where it seems there is a lot of similarities in spices and cooking styles which are found in the caribbean. I will also enjoy this!

    • says

      Aaahh, your wife and I share a love for Indian food then and a knowledge of it….hope she likes the recipes here:) Indian flavors run through so many cuisines and they are rather adaptable too…

      For example, my friend from Turkey and I are always amazed at the similarity in our dishes and spices used. And we had a Caribbean friend who always said that Indian food reminded him of home:) The world is a small place in food terms!

  33. says

    Peri – Thanks for checking out my blog. I’m so glad you did because I’ve been looking for a good blog on Indian food to add to my follow list. I love your background – that you are from Mumbai, a writer and have experience in the hospitality industry. I’m expecting great things from you!

    • says

      Thanks for your wonderful words:) I hope to live up to those expectations and I actually enjoy the challenge of making an amazing ancient cuisine like Indian food more acceptable to our modern palates…

      On the same note, love your blog and appetizing recipes and awesome pictures…you had me at ‘lime &cumin’ in the same sentence…a delicious flavor combination!

    • says

      Thank you for making me a part of your esteemed list of favorite bloggers, Jane…you have been equally if not more inspiring to me through your lovely blog and love for India. It’s just wonderful to read your motivating posts and you deserve all the wonderful recognition:) I will soon create a post to accept the award:)

      • says

        my pleasure. Your words are too kind but most appreciated…enjoy working on the post. It was a special treat for me doing it! Hope it will be for you as well :-D
        love light and JOY as always

  34. says

    Thank you for visiting my blog. Indian food is one of my favourites! I can’t wait to try some of your recipes – they look great and are not too labour intensive!

    • says

      Thanks for visiting Peri’s Spice Ladle, hope you like the recipes and nuggets of information on inspiring your meals with Indian flavors. And I’m always happy to answer questions…

  35. says

    So glad you popped over to my blog so that now I have found yours! You may have realised I am a huge fan of Indian food – I don´t get to cook and eat it as often as I did when I was in London (it´s still a very new concept to most Spaniards) but slowly, slowly. Am about to subscribe as I want to keep up to date (and also play catch up on your other posts) :)

    • says

      Your lovely Tarka Dahl and plate full of delicious Indian food grabbed my attention, couldn’t help but stop and read it!

      Always happy to find an Indian food fan…London, of course, is second home to Indian food:) Though I see that its rapidly spreading across the US now… So I can see Spain catching on too…

      You have a great blog…great stuff, will be back for more:)

    • says

      Thanks for visiting Peri’s Spice Ladle…you are in the right place! We strive to keep our recipes simple using basic wholesome home-cooked Indian flavors. Feel free to ask any questions:)

      Your blog is amazing…love the delicious food and pictures. Must try the pie on a stick; what a neat idea! Will certainly be back…

  36. says

    Hi Peri…first-thanks for liking my recent post on my “Not in India 2012″ blog. But a VERY special thanks to you for bringing me here to YOUR blog! I love everything Indian, including of course Indian food which is pretty much all I cook at home. I will be exploring your blog further, but have already seen the pulao recipe which I will be trying out for sure for a change from my regular rice, dahl and chapati. You might enjoy this link to something I posted awhile back about my all time favorite food: Aloo Parantha:
    http://janesindiajournals.wordpress.com/?s=aloo+parantha
    Thanks again for bringing me to you. Especially this year that I am not in India, it has made my day!
    with love light and JOY

    • says

      Thanks Jane…I am always delighted to find someone who loves India…in any way! Indian food is a staple at our home too, though we enjoy trying out every kind of cuisine and flavor…and then invariably, we ‘Indian-ize’ it:)

      Loved loved loved the aloo paratha recipe, thanks for putting me onto it…I wait to get to Delhi, where my mom-in-laws makes the most amazing aloo parathas…someday I will create a green paratha recipe, those are great hit with my kids!

      The bulgar pulao was my creation thanks to a dear friend from Turkey who now lives in England, she put me up to trying many bulgar treats, love the nuttiness of the grain and she keeps me inspired to try it.

      Look forward to reading about your journey…I’m a follower now:)

  37. Shirsha says

    Hi Peri, thanks for dropping by my blog. I like the collection of recipes in your blog. I look forward to trying out some of the dishes that you have mentioned – particularly the Parsi dishes…

  40. Delna says

    Refreshingly different!

    The recipes are easy to follow for busy working executives like me. There is a fine blend of new and old; reviving grandma’s recipe with a contemporary & modern twist.

    The writing style is warm and friendly. Most enjoyable!

    • says

      Thanks! Hope you make it to India someday soon… It will be a wonderful trip when you do make it. Get in touch for any help planning it out, I can point you to the right resources:)

      Just visited your site, what stunning photographs there. Brilliant work…my favorites were the dynamic fire and the ‘vishva shanti’ (world peace) one. Oh yes and Autumn too…
