Akuri is a spicy scrambled egg dish eaten in Parsi cuisine of India. Akuri is cooked until almost runny; the eggs are never overcooked, mixed with mild spices and served with bread and salad. It is believed that The Parsis have a love affair with eggs.
There is a very small population of Parsi in India who originally migrated from Persian(Iran). Parsis are a fun loving community and they they love food, music. Parsis do not limit eggs till breakfast. They have some of the most delightful recipes with egg as main course. Attractive to look at and exciting in taste, whole or beaten and frothy, cooked over a variety of vegetables, they make unusual and delicious combinations.
Parsi cooking includes vegetarian dishes as well, which are very interesting and tastes delicious, like the brinjal salnoo and bharta, moong dal with dill, khatti mithi dal, stews cutlets and curries are plentiful.
