Wake up, it’s food-O’ Clock!⏰

“There is no sincere love than the love of food” George Bernard Shah

Rain or shine it’s time to dine

North Indian Vegetarian Thali in my part of South India, is a simple combination of a variety of food items.

Before that, you should know about the word THALI.

What is thali?

Thali is a Hindi word meaning a metal plate.

Concerning food, thali means a plate or tray on which a meal is served.

Thali meals are an integral part of Cuisine in India.

The dishes vary from region to region and can be vegetarian or non-vegetarian.

The purpose of thali is to provide a balanced diet in the form of 6 flavours salt, sweet, bitter, astringent, sour and spicy.

Indian Thali

A typical dish of a North Indian thali includes rice, dhal, vegetables, roti, pappad, dhahi, some pickles and sweets.

South Indian thali serves rice, sambar, rasam, fried pappad, curd, pickle and sweets.

Both vegetarian and meat-based thalis can be served. Exclusive vegetarian restaurants are popular in many places

Indians are known for having elaborate meals.

The various names I have mentioned are just basics.

Starters alone can be more than a dozen, apart from the main course.


“Eat as if nobody is watching you.

Enjoy the food, as if that is the only thing left in this world”
